Whisky Bond, Dawson Road - Refurbished 2012/13:
A huge brick warehouse to the north of the city centre. Derelict and currently Glasgow's largest pigeon loft. Research indicates this was originally the Cutty Sark whisky bond warehouse. The first nine photographs on this page are from March 2011, then the subsequent photographs are from October 2011 on a revisit to coincide with the beginning of works which are to see the building redeveloped for use as micro-apartments and studio spaces as part of the canal regeneration works commissioned by Isis Waterside Regeneration and being undertaken by the Glasgow architectural practice 5architecture.

UPDATE: 2012/13 extensive refit has seen the building return to use as Artist Studios and office space.
