It's sad; looks like a lot of work has already went into the tower.

They should just leave there,

Thre's no one living in it. It was never finished. They pre sold a majority of the condos (priced from $500k), but had to give the deposits back. And there are houses fairly close to it

I was there last Sunday for the Ocean Tower implosion! Took about 13 seconds. It was awesome! Same company that imploded the Kingdome in Seattle which we watched from our boat in Elliott Bay.

reminds me of the Leaning Tower of Pisa....
tho' Pisa is less circumference and MUCH more leaning going on....

I have pics of Pisa, but was too claustrophobic to ascend to top...

I did sleep in a corn field that night, though... waited too long to claim/rent a youth hostel room that night....
was joined, however, by three fellow travelers, all four of us from four different parts of the globe, and all four of us INDEPENDENTLY and unknowingly hooking up separately - then at dinner that night at the youth hostel in Rome, we all discovered we had all become acquainted.....

me = US
Keith = Great Britain
Donna = Canada
Keith = Australian

we traveled together for about four days total... what grand youthful fun..
I spent 3 1/2 months over there, a youth hostel card and Student Rail Pass... ahhhh... trip of a lifetime.... yeaaahhh....
but um.... this is about SPI, to which I have never traveled.... yet.....

okay, you can have your thread back... solly.....
