Peter MacGregor Chalmers was a renowned architect whose "practice was almost exclusively church work, his only significant secular commission being Neptune Buildings, a design of great originality with Romanesque-inspired detail" (Dictionary of Scottish Architects). Chalmers was born in Glasgow and commenced practice in the city in 1887.
Currently unoccupied (2010). List description revised as part of the Glasgow East End listing review, 2010.
