One of the deceased additions in the Mercantile National Bank Complex in Dallas was 360 feet 22 storeys tall.



But just to the south of the complex, there is a building (still living and currently vacant) that is of similar height to the 2nd addition:

Now there are plans for the demolition of the Mercurio and Sao Vito buildings in Sao Paulo. It will be a manual demolition instead of an inplosion, so as to not affect the nearby Municipal Market Building.

The Mercurio and Sao Vito buildings are going to be torn down with a conventional dismantling, no implosion required. Demolition began in September 2010.

Even though it is only 75 metres tall and was only built in 2001, the McGuire Apartments have been slated for demolition by next year because of severe construction defects.




It is too bad that the building has to pass away especially because of the above reason. Hopefully a taller residential highrise can be built on its site.

This classic Victorian department store in Sydney:

Was destroyed and World Tower and Latitude eventually built on the spot. We replaced an old stunner with two modern stunners. It's still worth weeping over though.

But I think we were well compensated.

Another dead skyscraper walking: It was recently announced that Houston's Sheraton Lincoln Hotel is being dismantled this year for a parking lot. Demolition already started a few months ago.

Due to damage sustained in the 2011 New Zealand earthquake, the Grand Chancellor Hotel in Christchurch will face demolition via a floor-by-floor method.

This will be surprising, but the Akasaka Prince Hotel in Tokyo, Japan is to be dismantled next year.

The Otemachi Financial Center in Tokyo, which was constructed in 1992, is being dismantled to make way for a 200-metre office tower. And in Singapore, the Ocean Towers, also constructed in 1992, is undergoing demolition.

Quite an eyesore, Houston should be glad it's gone.

It probably tried to inhale some remaining Art Déco grandeur, but it obviously didn't work out pretty well.
