The Castle Chambers were built for G. and J. Maclachlan to designs by James Carruthers of the Glasgow architectural practice of Frank Burnet & Boston. The buildings were completed in 1902 at a cost of £28,000 (about £2.8m in today's money), and were built of red sandstone ashlar.

The five-storey building is decorated with sculptures by Ernest Gillick, and the entrance on West Regent Street has a mosaic with the firm's name.
