Nice, were they thermo-modernized (covered in mineral wool etc.)?
It's kinda weird that they don't have any balconies but afaik it's not a standard in the UK.

Yes I think so. Heat insulation and damp-proofing membrain. These blocks along with many others in Glasgow have been renovated within the last 2 - 3 years.

There are many other small / medium blocks in Glasgow with balconies. I will photograph some of them also and post them on this thread soon.

thanks.

Location is good, but it can't be luxury apartment. My guess is investor payed for renovation and was allowed to build one extra floor on top for own usage.

Hello.


I like some of these large slab blocks in Poznan, I think they look really well renovated. Very clean lookiing and soem nice use of neutral colours.

Some nice large high rise blocks in there as well.

I did not realise there was so many tall tower blocks in Poznan.
