Calvert House was designed as a five storey office building by Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects for R&B Calvert. The building was built by J. Wilson Ltd between August 1983 – January 1985 (Quantity Surveyor: Rue Stevenson & Sons; Structural Engineer: Armstrong & Shaw). The building received an RIAI Gold Medal for Architecture award in 1991. Previously on the site was Charles Lanyon’s 1863 Ulster Reform Club building. Following de-listing the building was demolished in 1983.

Calvert House was acquired by Glenbeigh Ltd in February 2008. DV8 fashion (a retailer associated with Glenbeigh Ltd) occupied the ground floor unit until relocating to CastleCourt Shopping Centre in September 2018.

Glenbeigh Ltd and Gravis Planning submitted a planning application (LA04/2018/2259/F) in September 2018 proposing to redevelop the existing building for retail use and install a new shop front elevation.
