843 Crow Road G13 1LG
J Holmes & Partners, 1970
Category A Listed
At 22-storeys, Anniesland Court is the tallest listed building in Scotland and Glasgow’s only Category A listed tower block. Tours will be taken to a top level for a description of the building and views over the city.
Built between 1968 and 1970 and designed by Jack Holmes & Partners, 843 Crow Road is located in the heart of Anniesland at the junction of Crow Road and Great Western Road. Constructed at a time when the Glasgow Corporation was building tower blocks throughout the city, Anniesland Court remains one of the finest examples of these megastructures.
With its split level flats and a separate service tower it was perhaps inspired by Erno Goldfingers Balfron Tower (which itself was the inspiration for his later and more famous Trellick Tower).
This is a rare opportunity to visit Anniesland Court, which is fully let and popular amongst residents. Tours will be taken to an upper level with access to the service towers and drying balconies.
