Most of the site had been drilled/shored already. They brought back the drilling machine to do the south east quadrant of the site that up until now had the remnants of the old building on it.

Saw the demolition of this building on an episode of Salvage Kings last night on History Channel.
They salvaged the wood beams - but had a tough time removing all the nails.


They also sold the old brass sconces from the Royal York lobby for $10,000 (for all 10, 8 complete, 2 missing glass shades)
The 3 pronged sconces are shown in this video here:
