This WAS a nice building, until a bunch of under-trained engineers said "hey, we can move it!" and the City planners said "duh, OK".

Needless to say, the old brick frame could not handle the stress and it collapsed. Made quite a scene too. Was in the papers.

Scary thing is, they've got the same crew working on deconstructing and constructing the new overpass just behind it.
