Clyde Place/Tradeston Street

Not sure if this is the correct section, on the basis that I think the "demolition" will be more "self destruct!"

Anyway, couple of picures of the building on the corner of Clyde Place and Tradeston Street.  I pass by this fairly regularly.  I don't recall seeing the cracks on the Tradeston Street face of the building.  Looks thoroughly dangerous and about to fall down at any moment.

the building is pretty knackered, but seems to be stable. I photographed it last year (feb 11) and there's no noticeable change from looking at the photographs. The cracks appear to be long term and don't seem to be growing.
The building is actually the former Ayrshire Tavern and dates from the 1850s, but the future for it looks bleak as it sits isolated and derelict. Perhaps the only thing saving it is the fact that developers aren't so hungry these days for all the city's land in the current recession, that and the fact its on the 'wrong' side of the Clyde.

Thing is though is it really the wrong side of the river as the south bank has enjoyed a bit of a renaissance lately with new houses springing up it has a hub of activity at Springfield Quay most nights of the week and I think it might not be long before some little box apartment builder decides to exploit the fact that the amenities it could offer in the way of shopping transport links and just plain old commute to the city. It checks all the right boxes as far as location is concerned and i suppose land prices are the only real stumbling block at this moment.

it is ripe for development as this shot showing it alone shows.. the clyde regeneration site shows there's nothing planned at the moment, a few yrs ago there were development plans for the area, but the downturn meant these were shelved, i guess its just a matter of time. There seems a lot of demolition just now what with the co-op after the fire, the whitevale baths, the facade retention of the olympia at bridgeton and the possible/probable upcoming demolition of the tenement along from the Olympia.

Hi Derelictglasgow, when you see it from that angle,  its an area waiting for development right enough

Looking at that picture, it's astonishing it hasn't fallen down sooner!
