dbo:abstract
  • The Bluevale and Whitevale Towers was the name for a development of twin tower block flats situated in the Camlachie district within the East End of Glasgow, Scotland. Officially known as 109 Bluevale Street and 51 Whitevale Street, (often nicknamed the Gallowgate Twins or the Camlachie Twin Towers) the two towers stand as the tallest building in Scotland although with only 29 occupiable floors (the 30th floor is a mechanical floor for building services and a drying area), they were not the buildings with the highest occupied floor level in the city (or Scotland); that distinction belonged to the contemporary Red Road estate on the north side of the city. They were briefly Scotlands second tallest freestanding structure in Scotland following the demolition of Inverkip Power Station on the Firth of Clyde in 2013.After originally being condemned in 2011, in early 2016 the demolition of both towers was completed, meaning that the Glasgow Tower is now the tallest freestanding structure in both Glasgow and Scotland as a whole.
