The College first started buying properties in Eldon Street in 1972 when it was zoned by the Secretary of State for educational purposes. The Phase III extension along Park Avenue (the Calder wing) was partly built on the site of the demolished tenements and shops at 1-9 Eldon Street. In 1984 the College had planned a further extension on the site of tenements at 15-35 Eldon Street. The College wanted to demolish the B listed terrace in order to make way for a building to house its expanding provision of Healthcare courses. There was resistance to these plans from local residents, backed by Glasgow District Council, who wanted to rehabilitate the building and retain it for housing.

In 1985 the Secretary of State agreed the College's plans with certain qualifications and agreed that capital funds would be made available from 1987. However, by that time the Scottish Education Department had decided to carry out a feasibility study to consider the extent to which accommodation at Jordanhill College of Education could meet the needs of the Queen's College, Glasgow.

In November 1987, despite local resistance, the building was demolished having been deemed unsafe by Glasgow District Council. The College campaigned to to have the campus extended on this single site at Eldon Street and Park Drive rather than a split site with Jordanhill College. In 1988 the Scottish Office decided that the new health care courses should be housed at Jordanhill.

A local public enquiry was held on 11 May 1990 over the Glasgow District Council's Park Anderston local plan. The Scottish Reporter stopped the enquiry and recommended that the land be designated as "Higher Education/Residential". The College continued to buy up the remaining vacant land at the site. Also in 1990, the College commissioned a feasibility study for an international hotel school, conference centre, health and fitness complex, and student residences for the Eldon Street site. Miller and Black, Architects, Glasgow and the Holmes Partnership, Architects and Planning Consultants, produced plans, models and marketing material for the project. The project was never realised and the Eldon Street site remained vacant.

The College had planned to house its expanding health care courses in a new development on Eldon Street, creating a single site campus around the existing Park Drive building. In 1987 the Scottish Education Department carried out a feasibility study to consider the extent to which vacant accommodation at Jordanhill College of Education could meet the needs of the Health Studies faculty. In 1988 the Scottish Office decided that the new health care courses should be housed at Jordanhill and so the Southbrae Campus was initiated.

The Schools of Radiography and Chiropody took up occupation of the Crawfurd Building at the Southbrae Campus in January 1991, the School of Occupational Therapy in February 1991 and the School of Orthoptics in March 1991. The Faculty of Health Studies at the Crawfurd Building, was officially inaugurated on Friday 13 December 1991 by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales who unveiled the commemorative plaque.
