Gordon Street Fire Station
The Category B Listed building LinkExternal link has lain empty and derelict on its gusset (wedge shaped) site between the traffic lanes of Gordon Street for many years. Such was the poor condition of the building that it was placed on the Buildings At Risk Register as long ago as 1994. Many efforts have been made over the years since then to develop the building, planning applications, grant applications and promised investment ultimately failing to come to fruition.

Then one day in April 2017 the scaffolding went up and news emerged that Paisley-based Fereneze Developments Ltd had been granted planning permission to redevelop the building. It is believed that the building will be come offices or flats, or a combination of both.

At the time of writing in August 2017, the stonework has been cleaned and new windows installed.
