Bellahouston Academy first opened in 1876 as private school. The site was donated by Misses Steven of Bellahouston whose generosity also provided the clocktower, and the building was designed by a Bath Street architect, Robert Balde. The Academy was initially run as a private venture by Alexander Sim who was sole shareholder and first rector who described it as a 'Boy's High Class School and Ladies' College'. For its first nine years the Academy struggled to function privately and the school was eventually taken over by the Govan School Board in 1885 and came under Glasgow Education Authority in 1919. The building became inadequate to meet the needs of an increasing number of pupils and in 1962 a new school was opened in Gower Terrace. However, increasing pupil numbers led to the old building being reopened in 1973 as an annexe. The Academy eventually became surplus to requirements in 2008/2009 and has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment program which was completed in early 2015.

Set within the original Grade B listed Bellahouston Academy building, the owners have completed an ambitious program of refurbishment and improvement works converting the property to what is now Bellahouston Business Centre.

Access to the building is taken via the main central entrance on the Paisley Road West frontage, which leads to an impressive reception area with full height atria incorporating original carved timber roof trusses and stunning full length skylights which complement the reception area with excellent natural daylight.

In total 28 office suites are situated around the perimeter of the central atria, arranged over ground and first floor levels. A new lift has been installed to ensure the building is fully DDA compliant and communal male, female and
disabled toilets are provided on each floor.

Each suite has carpeted flooring, painted plasterboard walls and suspended ceilings with incorporated light fittings. Again, each suite has a dedicated electricity supply and heating is provided via wall mounted original gas radiators
powered by a central boiler system. CAT 5 data cabling is available in each suite and a range of broadband and VOIP packages will be available to ingoing occupiers, depending on their specific requirements.


The building can be let as a whole with a total net internal area of 13,570 sq.ft, or in suites ranging in size from 401 sq.ft to 658 sq.ft, which can be let individually or combined to accommodate larger space requirements.
