Maybe we will see this demolition style during our next "terrorist attack".

@Pandabee: Sighthill Towers Demolition

Those blocks are 20 stories? yes? And there`s lots of room around them.

Tokyo Grand Prince Hotel is 40 stories, bigger all around and surrounded by other tall buildings.

Since the demolition preparations took 9 months? Overall it`s not a whole lot faster, eh? (But it is cheaper, (and more fun!) to blow stuff up...)

You can demolish an enclosed building. Sighthill Tower block in Glasgow, had a railway track 10 metres one side and a primary school 10 metres the other side and it was brought down with a controlled explosion.

Like.
As much as I like Asplosions! (explosions) for demolition, being at ground level and having to put up with all that dust and stuff can be a bit tiresome.

VV It`s a BIG building! There`s at least 2 other buildings close to it. Plus there`s all sorts of benefits to doing it this way:
Clean
Quiet
Recycle everything!

And it`s probably not TOO much more expensive overall.

There`s a lot of buildings in big cities that are "too big to demolish" and someday will have to be torn down...

I bet the Chinese could bring it down quicker. Just build a lighthouse on the Diaoyu Islands and wait for the bombers.

In seriousness, I am in a related industry and I would not want to be in, under or near that building when they demolish it that way.

I thought that a properly executed implosion would not typically affect surrounding buildings. This seems horribly inefficient and slow.
