Facinating stuff HH 8O The sort of thing which should done more often instead of completely doing away with fine buildings.
(Although it's a shame the wee red vans will never again run in & oot of there).

What's the cost difference in retaining the facade, and adding a new interior, as opposed to a totally new build ?

Now thats what I call facade retention. It must be one of the few times a Glasgow developer/builder has lived up to that point in the contract....so far. For buildings of architectural interest if one cannot refurbish or convert a building then the next best method should be facade retention.

Action on this building at last!

Taken 10 years too long if ye ask me. While I'm here, please don't sell a listed building to Stefan King ever ever ever again! :x :x

I worked here for a couple of years in my yoof as a postie. If there ever was a tunnel, it's probably been blocked up with a mixture of long lost drunk postmen and undelivered mail. an interest in getting pished was almost an essential requirement to get a job there.
