The subjects which are Grade A Listed, comprise the prestigious former High School of Glasgow, laterally occupied by Strathclyde Regional Council and Police Scotland. The buildings comprise five distinct blocks, together with two gatehouses and a smaller modern addition.
The majority of buildings provide office accommodation following conversion from educational use. In addition, the former Council debating chamber remains in-situ providing an opportunity to utilise the space for a variety of uses.
The buildings are generally of sandstone construction under traditional pitched and slate roofs, and have many outstanding architectural features.
The properties are formed around a large central courtyard utilised for parking with gated vehicular access from Holland Street. There is pedestrian access from both Holland Street and Elmbank Street. The site is surrounded by stone walls and full height railings.

The established use of the former High School complex is class 4 office and continued use of the buildings for this purpose would be consistent with protecting the City Centre as a SEIL. However this unique opportunity also provides a prospect for sustainable repurposing with a new use that complements the office function and extends activity out with office hours. This is essential in ensuring the city centre remains attractive to inward investors. This outstanding A-listed building has the potential to be utilised as a high end luxury hotel with some of the unique spaces suitable for conferencing, banqueting and supporting leisure uses or concessionary retail. House 10 in particular does not contribute to the historic buildings special interest and removal of this modern, former operational, utilitarian building would be welcomed and may provide an opportunity for modest enabling development. A mix of complimentary uses may also be acceptable providing these uses do not have a detrimental impact on the SEIL or the buildings special architectural or historical interest.
