Then after, in the column to the southeast, with a blowtorch the ribs are melted

Furthermore, next to Torre Mayor an excavation continues over Rio Atoyac street. I'm not so sure if what they're excavating (of grey color) is a rock, or a rock slide, which ever it is, they are doing it with a pick

not sure what you mean, but if you you're talking about this old building gone, not long.

Update from today by gratteciel

The building soon to perish...

Well this building is almost gone completely! We can see this by just staring at the space next to Torre Mayor, or should i say, we can't.
