Dorothy Denham, who lived there from 1973 to 1995, said: "They were great. They were lovely. They were so different to where we'd came from in the Gallowgate.
"We had great neighbours and if the flats had been the same as in the 1970s I wouldn't have left them." New Gorbals Housing Association said the multi-storey flats were poorly constructed and would have cost too much to improve.
The housing organisation intends to build 100 modern homes on the site.
