Demolishing a building

Coop Forum

Coop Forum

Last year the new shopping mall Port 73 opened next to the Cop Forum supermarket in Handen. I think business have been slow in the new mall, at least it looks empty every time I am there. Coop Forum used to sell pretty much everything, but when all the new boutiques moved in and started selling electronics,clothing, bicycles, flowers and what have you, Coop had to focus on food. In this part of the building they used to sell major appliances, outdoor furniture, paint and other DIY stuff. But in the last week the building have been demolished. I don't know what they will do with this space, but I have a feeling there will be a few new stores here in a not too distant future.

Demolishing always make me have a strange feeling. Great composition in the middle.

So this place only lasted a year? Sounds like a waste of money to me!

Nope. The mall is actually growing in size Halcyon. But this older part has bee teared down.

Like Halcyon I thought this building looked too new to be demolished and was surprised. Thats progress!

It takes so long to build, and such a short time to demolish..There's a message there I think.
