Hey Judy, where did this tower go?

Just good ol’ dynamite.

I like the collapse, reformation, and collapse again sequence.

Quite a sad story about the rise and fall of the Bethlehem Steel Co.

Interesting parallels to the WTC twin towers rising and felling.

This tower was supposed to have a twin. Building started in 1969. The company went under in 2001.

They spent time removing the asbestos and stripping it down to the steel and concrete floors when all hope of redevelopment was lost.

Is there any doubt that CDI imploded the WTC? Not for me.

In the last couple years, the owners have removed asbestos from Martin Tower and demolished more than 400,000 square feet of ancillary buildings on the campus. The decision to demolish Martin Tower was announced earlier this year after the interior of the building was gutted to the steel beams and concrete floors.
