The days are long. The years are short.
When we look up, look back and notice the passage of time, we start taking measurements of life.
Unless a disaster has struck, demolition takes place when land value transcends structure value. The old house or warehouse no longer matches the value of surrounding structures.
I recently demo’d the former home of lead contractor for The Causeway Bridge. He was a legend, the older neighbors told me, as they gathered to watch the house come down. But the youngsters pushing baby carriages kept on strolling.
Demolition has a way of telling stories.
