Red Road Flats, Balornock / Barmulloch
Red Road Flats
The Red Road Flats were a mid-twentieth-century high-rise housing complex located between the districts of Balornock and Barmulloch in the northeast of the city of Glasgow. The estate originally consisted of eight multi-storey blocks of steel frame construction. All were demolished by 2015.

Two were “slabs”, much wider in cross-section than they are deep. Six were “points”, more of a traditional tower block shape.

The slabs had 28 floors (26 occupiable and 2 mechanical), the point blocks 31 (30 occupiable and 1 mechanical), and taken together, they were designed for a population of 4,700 people.

The point blocks were among the tallest buildings in Glasgow at 89 metres (292 ft), second in overall height behind the former Bluevale and Whitevale Towers in Camlachie. The 30th floor of the point blocks were the highest inhabitable floor level of any building in Glasgow.
