Noticed workmen and diggers within the fenced area the last few days.

Does anyone know what's happening, please tell me it's finally getting used for something!

Money was included in the city deal to do exploratory work on the site to help try and stimulate investment. So, no nothing specific quite yet I don't think.

I personally anticipate a Laurieston type housing build to go in that slot eventually.

Part of the stalled plan by Dawn Developments was to build housing on the Abattoir site I think - only the building on the corner of Duke St and High St (leased to the council), the Duke St car park plus firstly one block of student accommodation on Havannah St and then the second on Duke St next to the car park (which was originally intended to be a hotel) got built as part of that overall plan. A new application and work now seems to have started on one of the original plan's further blocks of student accommodation on Havannah St, so may be that the plan is being revived and something will got built on the Abattoir site, as well as the whole site back to Gallowgate? see here for some info on the original plan:

A little bird tells me HMRC has secured it to build one of what they refer to as their Regional Centre.

Some decade-old 'masterplanning' info for the area can be seen about a third of the way down this page:
