The building is a prominent landmark on the east side of downtown, and its elevated position on the Rottenrow drum means that it can be seen from a great distance throughout the east end of the city. It was also among the earliest post-war high-rise commercial buildings erected in the city centre, previously dated only by St Andrew’s House (1964), Fleming House (1961), and the Royal Stuart Hotel (1963)—the latter It was owned by the University of Strathclyde in the 1980s and early 1990s as a student residence hall.

In 2000, the Hunter Center for Entrepreneurship was built by converting the former rooftop terrace into offices, thus creating the 14th floor, accessed by stairs from the 13th floor. It was all part of the Strathclyde Entrepreneurship Initiative. The Hunter Center offers elective courses related to various areas of business. It is named after Sir Tom Hunter after a £5 million grant to the university to help fund the new centre. In 2011 they moved to the 199 Cathedral Street building, where they were replaced by the Strathclyde Business School Center for Corporate Communications.

The building was renovated in 2010, which saw an internal reorganization of some rooms and facilities, the replacement of external spandrel panels, the construction of a new modern language center and the redesign of the floors by moving the ground floor to level 1, thus the former rooftop terrace becoming level 15 – the radio station studios Celtic Music Radio on the 14th floor of the building inside the Hunter Center.read more
