Demolition commences on twin Ibrox towers
October 17 2011
The high flats are the latest in the Ibrox district of the city to be chomped as the 22 storey flats are nibbled back down to earth.
198 properties will be lost under the plans, their occupants rehoused by GHA and other social landlords.
Plans are being drawn up for the regeneration of the site, including the £7m rehabilitation of the remaining block for key worker housing.

Technical Demolition Services have been appointed to oversee the work.
One tower, 15 Ibroxhol Oval, was granted a last minute reprieve when the Scottish Gov stepped in with a £1.1m cheque
