forge place in germiston ready for demiltion

15 Forge Place was an 18 storey tower block on the Coll Place estate in Germiston, Glasgow.

It was approved in 1967 and construction was carried out by Reema Scotland who used steel cladding similar to that used on the nearby Red Road estate. It was similar in style to blocks in Glenavon and nearby Roystonhill.

The building contained 102 flats which from the late 1990s, were used to house asylum seekers.

It was declared derelict in July 2007 and demolished on the 18th May 2008 at 5:45am.
