A Dusty Demolishing

Dust rising over the city center, seen from La Concordia.
Mount Vesuvius erupting in Bogotá? Not quite. This afternoon, the city demolished a building
Future or fantasy? The planned Estacion Central.
located in a delapidated area a few blocks west of the Colpatria Tower. The plan is to build a huge transit/office/housing/retail complex there named Estación Central.

Hopefully, the project will actually happen, and not fall victim to corruption, budget cuts or diverting of funds to the monumentally expensive subway fantasy.

Meanwhile, if only there were a way to knock down buildings without generating huge dust clouds, which must inject billions of tiny particles into the air.

You left us hanging! Somehow the name of the new complex did not make it onto the page.
