Anderston tower block demolition clears way for £50m estate regeneration
September 3 2013
The Sunday morning demolition by controlled explosion will clear the way for a Cooper Cromar residential scheme following an earlier design competition.
Peter Martin, group director of the association, said: "This is a significant milestone in a project which has revitalised a thriving community in the heart of Glasgow.
"The quality of our housing has not only changed the lives of Anderston residents for the better but also created many jobs and training opportunities. Conditions remain tough in construction but Sanctuary continues to support the sector through our extensive new-build programme.
"The demolition of 14 Shaftesbury Street is not an end but another new beginning for Anderston. It allows us to create better homes to house even more local families for many decades to come."
