And suddenly it’s gone

Demolition is so discreet these days. None of those explosives, messy hauling trucks that remind you of a mine site.

Within a brief instance of a few weeks, a building that was an architectural icon for its time and stood for decades disappeared to make way for a shiny new one.

All that’s left is a whisper of a memory to what was there before. And an old blog post. I hope the new building connected to 28 Hennessy doesn’t disappoint.
