Going down: Rose Cottage on Par-la-Ville Road, will be demolished early next year (Photograph supplied)

The last remaining residential property on a busy Hamilton road is to be demolished.

Rose Cottage, on Par-la-Ville Road, stands in the shadow of multi-storey office blocks that are home to law and accountancy firms, as well as international businesses.

The Royal Gazette also has its offices on the road.

But the Corporation of Hamilton, which owns the property, has confirmed that the bulldozers will move in in the new year.

A spokeswoman for the City said that it planned to build an office block on the site.

She said: “The City consulted with a local real estate company to see what options existed for the building, who concluded there was very little value as a residential property.

“We did explore multiple renovation options and contacted local area businesses to see if they wanted to partner, which did not prove fruitful.

“Rose Cottage will be demolished early in the New Year in favour of a temporary green space, until a commercial development is approved by the Corporation’s board in the future.”
