The demolition crane took its last swipe at the MCH Professional Tower building on Saturday, May 27th, 2006. Once the rubble is clear, this will make way for parking at the new MCH Cancer Center that’s due to open this October. During the months prior to the demolition, the building was vacated and the OPD & Fire Department used the tower for tactical training. It was quite a thrill to see the OFD guys rappeling down the outside of the building during their training exercises (brought back memories of Spiderman).
Gary Barnes was on-hand to capture a video of the dramatic final fall of the tower.
