At 22-storeys high, Anniesland Court is the tallest listed building in Scotland and Glasgow’s only Grade A-listed tower block. Visitors will be taken to a top floor to see communal areas and views of 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 Ernő Goldfinger's 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.
