2005_11_deutschebank.jpgThe Lower Manhattan Development Corporation has posted an animated video of what the deconstruction of the Deutsche Bank at 130 Liberty Street will look like. It won't be demolished; rather, it will be carefully "detoxified and disassembled" because it is still extremely contaminated after September 11, 2001. The video is very cool (once you get past why it has to be deconstructed), showing that scaffolding will go up for crews to clean the building and that columns and windows will be carefully removed. There's even a simulation of the West Side Highway (or is it West Street), with cars speeding by as the building's floors are taken away.
