My mistake on that last post--there's still a little bit of the Century left, though last night was a pretty significant loss (complete with rivets popping out by themselves). Tonight will be the last night that any of it's left above basement level. Rumor has it that some of the developers who were instrumental in its senseless and heartless destruction will be in attendance to watch and celebrate their "victory."
We encourage you to come watch, too. The Century is bounded by Olive, 9th, and Locust. We think wrecking will start some time after 5pm to accomodate the developers' schedules, though we're not sure. Tonight there will be lots of gallery openings downtown, so there'll be plenty to see while you wait.
Come say your goodbyes to the last of this structurally innovative, beautiful piece of downtown. We suggest wearing black to show that you're mourning.
