Blackhall Court is on the left

Blackhall Court was a 15 storey tower block in the Hunterhill housing estate in Paisley.

Located on Cartha Crescent, Blackhall Court takes it's name from the nearby district of Blackhall. It was approved as the Blackhall project along with it's sister block, Ardgowan Court in 1958 and construction was carried out by Blackburn.

The 40m tall building was cladded in brick completed in 1960.

In 2001, Renfrewshire Council decided the future of Paisley's high rise stock which made up 15% of the the town's council housing. All would be kept except for flats at Millarston, Foxbar as well as Hunterhill. Tenancies were slowly wound down and the last resident moved out of Blackhall Court by December 2007 and the building was boarded up days later.

Reigart carried out the demolition of the flats took two weeks days from the 11th of April 2008. Blackhall Court was the first of the two tower blocks to be demolished. The demolition cost the council £800,000. An excavator was the method of demolition used as opposed to explosives due to the close proximity of the building to a nearby factory and 400,000 volt power line being 25 metres away.
