The Pricewaterhouse Coopers Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand.

It was badly damaged in the earthquake. Dunno why but this was
my favourite building. Just me I guess.
It's 21 floors.

I find this a much bigger loss than the Singer Building. The Drake Hotel.



Also, the Morrison Hotel.

The building next to it (Tribune Tower) was demolished as well.
NY Times Building was simplified (roof).
Luckily, the splendid ATC Building remains there unchanged until today.

See also: New York World Building / Park Row

Newspaper Row:

Source
"City Hall stands in front of Newspaper Row - the former publishing headquarters of The World (left), The Tribune (center) and The Times (right) in downtown Manhattan, circa 1906. Behind the New York Times building is the American Tract Society." (ca. 1906.)


I really hope these buildings get reconstructed one day. This ensemble would deserve it.

The Singer Building, City Invest, Drake, PennStation and several other losses of Manhattan as well.

The demolition of the 138.9m high Akasaka Prince Hotel in Tokyo is under way.



It will be replaced by a 180m high office/hotel tower.



Last year the 105m tall Otemachi Financial Center was demolished.



The location would become a forest right next to the new 200m high Otemachi 1-6 plan tower.

This one comes closest to a demolished 200m building.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torre_de_la_Escollera

It wasn't completed so it should not count.


But one day there will be a 200m tower that will be dismantled. It's just a matter of time, not all towers are built for eternity.

Tokyo Sofitel Hotel (110 meters - 26 stories), built in 1994. The high-rise building was demolished between 2007 and 2008.
It was designed by Kiyonori Kikutake.
The building was one of the tallest in Taito ward.
