The housing stock in this small region was extremely degraded, here is a remaining example of an INHABITED house.

You can see they are serious about this project, this is not the hit and run style demolition being committed by the Mayor which leaves a giant hole or a complete mess. Here they are digging out the basements and foundations and infrastructure like pipes etc.

Too bad this whole area stinks like crazy burned garbage juice. This big stanky thing needs some regulation, quickly. Gawd that is awful.

This time it is the historic Wilbur Wright School that comes under the Adamo wrecking ball.

Here is the main powerstation smokestack coming down.

Here is the powerstation a week before demolition started.

They should have all the inner volumes and smokes stacks down by the morning, and will probably make short work of the facades later today or tomorrow morning.
