Demolition Clydeview Shopping Centre

End of an Era
 
It’s the end of an era in Blantyre today, Thursday 19th July 2018, as contractors commence the actual demolition of Clydeview Shopping Centre.
 
Glasgow Road and Low Blantyre is set to be transformed as the eastern side of the 38 year old shopping centre is pulled down to be replaced by modern units with new landscaped pedestrian spaces.
 
Demolition of the old brick building started at the south eastern side near Logan Street around 9am this morning, as captured here in this video.

 
Have your say. Are you sad to see the shops go? What are your hopes (and fears) for this space?
