They finally got my friend's car out of the garage. Of course he already had to purchase a replacement.

Driving around downtown today and happened to find myself looking right at this tower. Haven't really appreciated how much of an impact this building has on the east side of 345.

Does he have any insight into how they were able to extract it? From the pictures that I saw of 'the event', essentially an entire vertical section of the garage was collapsed, so I'm guessing that anything above the first floor was inaccessible due to the ramps being destroyed.

It does seem slow, although they did have that delay added to the process which didn't help.

They brought in two of the largest mobile cranes I've ever seen.

Any updates on the Elan City Lights building? Are they going to fix it or tear it down?
