An Engineering Landmark Faces Demolition in Moscow


Recommended Posts

I liked this article in today's New York Times for the following quote:


"Proponents for dismantling the tower say it’s a wreck; the situation is a classic case of demolition by neglect." It's the same approach embraced by Mayor Buddy Dyer and his, ummm, fellow travelers in the development community.


I thought again about this most recently when someone inquired on another post about the sad state of the Amtrak station. While strictly speaking it's not the city's responsibility, can you imagine the city's leaders allowing that to be the first impression thousands of visitors receive when they arrive (especially since travel by train is on the rise again)?


Of course, that's hardly the only structure awaiting such a fate. There are dozens of buildings in the downtown core in various states of decline, and not so much as a peep about possible solutions from Thomas Chatmon or anyone else responsible for downtown.
