Triple Kirks Site
Construction work at the Triple Kirks site in January 2018.

The site has had a long and somewhat unsatisfactory history of redevelopment. The churches largely fell into disuse and disrepair in the 1970s and 80s. Since that time there has been a number of proposed development plans.

One of the original three churches, the East Kirk, continues to house a popular pub, nightclub, and a dance studio.

Through the years there have been a number of companies involved in work on the site: Barrett Commercials, William Cowie Partnership, Esson Properties Ltd, Stewart Milne and, most recently, Dandara.

In around 2014 the remaining walls of the North Kirk were demolished and significant excavation, visible in this image, was begun. A proposed office development by Dandara was intended to be completed in the third quarter of 2015. The work however stalled some time prior to this date.

The work shown in this photograph to reinforce the tower is the first development at the site for some time. It was recently suggested that the location would be used for student accommodation instead of offices.
