It's not the most number of buildings taken down in one, but second. America's CDI group claim the record for the most taking out 17 buildings at once at Villa Panamericana & Las Orquideas in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The demolition occurred in Shenzhen right next to the river which seperates Shenzhen from Hong Kong.

The Guiness World Record for most number of buildings ever imploded at once by CDI in San Juan was shown tonight on the Guiness World Records on Ch 7.

Off-topic, but don't you drive on the left in Hong Kong? What happens when you cross the border into China by car?

Anyway, I think if anyone in the nearby towers didn't know about the demolition (or forgot), they must have had one hell of a shock then they started blowing the towers up...

Sorry if it's a stupid question, but why were they demolished? That reddish building in the 3rd last pic looks pretty new, as does that one that looks like it's still under construction?!? Really cool, that aerial shot really looks not real

Good question. They are new. The reason they were demolished was because they were built illegally, without government approval.
