Demo crews making a mess of the former Exxon Upstream Research Facility on Buffalo Spdwy. between Richmond and W. Alabama started early this morning — at 5:30 am, reports a reader. Erick Ganzo, who’s been tracking the steady disappearance of the MacKie and Kamrath Architects 1962 office complex (as well as more recent additions) from the 16.9-acre compound, says workers lit up the site with large bright lights before the rising sun took over that job. He tells Swamplot he assumes workers are aiming to complete demo work before Hurricane Harvey arrives later today.
