GHA begin demolition of three Govan tower blocks
July 30 2013
Three towers at 31, 45 and 59 Iona Court, Govan, have been targeted for the chop following declining demand and increasing investment and maintenance costs.
Tenants have already been decanted to new build properties in the local area, clearing the way for Dem-Master to commence a soft strip out of the structures.
Their crane will be deployed over the coming weeks with work expected to conclude by December.
David Fletcher, Wheatley Group director of regeneration (GHA’s parent company), said: “The demolition of the multi-storey blocks at Iona Court marks another important step forward in the ongoing regeneration of the east Govan and Ibrox areas.
“Our new development at Summertown Road is already breathing new life into the wider area and our redevelopment of the tower block at 15 Ibroxholm Oval will also be available for let for mid-market rent from next month.”
