1. That must be so expensive. It’ll be interesting if housing prices keep correcting to the point where it becomes uneconomical to continue and they just walk away. We end up with a 100 ft stump.

  2. I attended a presentation that described the tear-down process. Removing the top is slow and tedious, but the rest will go quickly. They will place a large powerful machine against a surface and hit the vibrate button. Poof! The concrete will turn to dust, and get funnelled below. The vibration leaves the re-bar clean and easily removable. This will be repeated until the building disappears. Cost is equivalent to implosion, but with obviously fewer risks.
