Status: Planning Granted

Built in 1875, and designed by architect James Boucher, known primarily for his involvement in the design of the Kibble Palace in Glasgow, the existing building is known affectionately to many Glaswegians as the Teacher building.

Built originally to house the headquarters, offices and dram shop of William Teacher & Sons, the building was ideally located across the Square from the St Enoch railway station and hotel which formed one of the main routes to the south and London St Pancras.

More recently it was known as a conference centre for the Institute of Engineering and Technology. The building will now commence a new chapter in its life as a serviced apartment building including a whisky bar and restaurant where city-goers can meet in convivial surrounding, whilst visitors to the city can stay in stylish comfort,
