The Beresford Hotel was designed by the architects Weddell & Inglis for one of the firm's partners, William Beresford Inglis. It opened in 1938 in time to attract visitors to the Empire Exhibition. Despite the energetic management of a new owner, the whisky broker Jimmy Barclay, its popularity declined after the war and it was sold in 1952. Imperial Chemical Industries converted the premises to offices and the Beresford became known locally as the ICI Building. It was acquired by the University of Strathclyde in 1964 and converted to a student residence as Baird Hall. In 2003 it was sold again, to be converted to private apartments.
