Closer Look: Demolition

Thursday, Jun 6, 2019

In January 2019, a demolition permit was filed for the 52-story, 1.5-million-square-foot Union Carbide Building. According to PlaNYC, the city generates roughly seven million tons of construction and demolition debris a year, nearly twice the municipal solid waste output of London. New York City is also home to 23 (soon to be 24) of the world’s tallest intentionally demolished buildings.

The time is now to take a closer look at demolition effects as well as alternative pathways for preservation and sustainability.
