As part of the Kingsway Court re-development programme being undertaken by Glasgow HousingKingsway_Block10_Demolition_05 Association the demolition of two of the blocks has recently begun.

The re-development programme, which has seen Blocks 30, 40, 50 and 60 fully refurbished, will also see the demolition of Blocks 10 and 20 to make way for new build houses. Block 10 is the first to be demolished and was recently handed over to the demolition company.

The flats were built in 1964 and next year will be the 50th anniversary of the estate.

The application for planning permission for the new build houses that will replace Blocks 10 & 20 was submitted back in February but has still not been granted. You can see more about the planning application on the Council’s online planning portal (Ref No 13/00382/DC)
