Architecture Notes

NS56NE 415 59655 65265

ARCHITECT: E Owen Williams, 1936.

Originally built for the Daily Express. Home of the Glasgow Herald from July 1980.

(Undated) information in NMRS.

Built in 1936 for the Daily Express to the design of Sir Owen Williams, the building comprises a reinforced-concrete internal frame the external walls of which are clad in glass and black vitrolite, with metal-framed windows. It was originally four-storeyed, but a roof extension was added in 1988. The building was taken over in the same year by The Glasgow Herald (later re-named 'The Herald') and Evening Times. At the time of survey in 2001, The Herald offices had moved to new premises in Renfield Street, and there were also plans to move the printing operations in the near future.
