Well they imploded the cranes. Now all they have to do is get the bodies out. Then finish off the rest of the building.

They are going to have to implode it. No way around it.

Have you ever seen a wrecking ball being used to demolition a building? One impact doesn't collapse half the building. This building was a House of Cards, waiting to come down.

The only real possibilities are either poor design, or construction, or both.
Amazing how the collapse has been professionally analyzed right here on CD!

Obviously some posters have a great grasp of the obvious, it’s an engineering or construction issue ❗️

It looks like the Mayor agrees with me, that the building must come down. But goodluck to the city trying to recover their expenses after the developer declares bankruptcy. Like it or not, New Orleans is going to be out a lot of money over this fiasco.

Mayor demands full demolition of Hard Rock collapse site
Cantrell has said the city is spending upwards of $400,000 a day on the clean-up efforts.

NEW ORLEANS — After the Hard Rock cranes came down Sunday, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell made it clear she doesn’t want anything left on the site.

“We want a complete demolition. And while it's under the authority right now of the city of New Orleans, that will be our focus and that will be our mission,” she said.

And the law seems to be on her side.

City law says that in an emergency situation, the director of the Department of Safety and Permits can order a demolition. That can happen if public safety could be at risk.

Its funny that the City complains about money when they spent however much money (both directly and in lost tourism) tearing down statues.

Give me a break. Nobody goes to NOLA to see statues. They go there to party and get drunk. No money would be lost if they tore down every statue in the city. The Confederacy lost the war. Deal with it. Nothing is going to change the fact.

Most, yes. But more people are not going now than who would have decided not to go had they remained. And then there's the whole spending money the city didn't have to take them down.

New Orleans absolutely doesn't want supporters of treason in it's city limits. Go to a fun republican suburb.
