The Clarion Hotel is finally coming down. The North side of the hotel was taken down on October 23, 2014 leaving just the middle section of the hotel remaining. It was fascinating to watch the method of demolition, the crew cut the supports of the building partially and then used an excavator attached to the supports to pull the beams out from under the building until it fell. If you look carefully you can see the supports being pulled out in the beginning of the video.
This video has 2 angles, keep watching towards the end to see the ground shot full screen and as always, be sure to switch quality to HD!

. He gave me the heads up to get out there to film this section coming down. Check out his channel for a great chronology of the Clarion demo he has been putting together, it really is good stuff.
