Apartments are spread over five floors, benefitting from an attractive internal landscaped courtyard area. The building is built of attractive red brick and there are lifts to all floors and allocated car parking space for the residents.

Cathcart House was designed by Scottish architect, Sir John James Burnet, and built to house the Wallace Scott Tailoring Institute. It was completed in 1916, with plans to further extend the building beginning in 1919 and lasting until 1922.

Formerly known as the headquarters of Scottish Power since it was bought by the company on 1950s, property developer the FM Group acquired the building in 2017 and has been extensively refurbishing it through a £40m redevelopment plan.
