Approved in 1962 in phase one of the Summerfield development, Laidlaw carried out the construction of the building using the Prometo method. The design was by Glaswegian architects, Parry & Hughes. The building was completed in 1964.
It was part of a quartet of 23 storey tower blocks on the Millerfield high rise housing estate and was the last to be demolished in a massive regeneration effort to turn Dalmarnock into a potential Commonwealth Games village which resulted in the demolition of the twelve maisonettes and the 4 tower blocks. Complications with preparing the building for demolition prevented it from being imploded in late-February 2007 as planned. This was possibly as a result of an experiment into high rise fires conducted by the University of Edinburgh in 2006 affecting the structure's stability. At 11am on 9 September 2007, 4 Millerfield Place was finally demolished, leaving the entire Millerfield estate empty and awaiting new development.
