Historic building snapped up for Build To Rent development

A historic former school and hospital building in Glasgow City Centre will be restored as part of a plan to create 21 new Build To Rent homes.

The B-listed Mount Building, which back to 1882, will be transformed into a BTR scheme completed in around 12 months from site start.

Developer Nevis Properties acquired the Mount Building from the school in October and won planning consent just before Christmas.  


There will be 18 one and two bedroom apartments – five of which will feature private terraces – alongside a trio of new three-bedroom mews houses. Residents will also have access to carefully planned landscaped areas.

Nevis Properties director Marc Taylor says: “Our ambitious plans to repurpose the Mount Building are testament to our dedication to transform vacant spaces into sustainable urban living areas, occupied by vibrant communities – all while preserving Glasgow’s architectural heritage through sensitive restoration wherever possible and appropriate.  

“This project aligns with Glasgow City Council's vision. We are excited to further contribute to the city's growth and offer a distinctive, high-quality living experience in this historically significant building. Given the exceptional demand for rental properties in Glasgow, and increased appetite for city centre living, we expect this development to be extremely popular among renters."

Nevis Properties aims to commence construction this summer and complete the development by mid-2025.
