Construction work on Comiston Luxury Flats

Construction work on Comiston Luxury Flats

About this memory

For the thousands of people who lived in them since they were built in the 1960s, the high rise flats in Oxgangs (Caerketton, Allermuir and Capelaw) were a lot more than just a dwelling place; it was a ‘village in the sky’. The ‘village’ has now been demolished and the new Dunedin Canmore housing development is well underway on the land once occupied by the ‘village in the sky’.
