Destructo-Porn!

Who doesn't love a dreamy demolition? An impressive implosion? A nifty knock-down? I thought so. Share the splendid devastation here!


I'll start with a modest McDonalds massacre:

Awesome videos! Why did they had to demolish 3 skyscrapers (Landmark, Ocean Tower, and Florida Condo)? Structure issues?

The Landmark Tower was a aging old tower that was obsolete in the minds of developers. The other two had sinking issues, I think.

Be wary of the word "obsolete."

I thought this thread had a cool, nifty virus I could get.

That last shot of Ocean Tower from that neighborhood was awesome. It looked like the damn thing just melted!

The condo at 1515 Flagler was demolished because of hurricane damage

I love the explosions but i got a little downbeat on seeing the Aladdin and Stardust come down. Doesn't the strip have a lot of extra space that they can save these marvels of Las Vegas history. Pity.
