Explosive demise looms for twin Gorbals blocks
Twin tower blocks on Sandiefield Road, Gorbals, are to be brought down by explosive demolition this summer following the commencement of strip out works by Coleman & Company.

New Gorbals Housing Association is funding the clearance which will allow construction of new homes designed by Page/Park with landscape work undertaken by Ian White Associates.

Adopting a four storey tenement form the project will build on the 1990 Crown Street masterplan and will incorporate a small office space and community centre, potentially occupied by the housing association itself.

‘Blowdown day’ is yet to be confirmed but will take place on a Sunday between 8am and 3pm at some point during July and August.

New housing has transformed the area in recent years
