I know that Sunny Govan Radio used it for a broadcast in the late 90's, before they moved to their current home in Elderpark Workspace. I'm guessing that it's owned by the council, or possibly Scottish Enterprise these days.

come to think of it, didnt they also rip down craigie street cop shop?

The only history I know of Tobago Street is the old horse tram depot next door to the police station. A converted spinning mill, it was burnt down in 1883, rebuilt, and now demolished of course. A wee side building & chimney still exist.
