Sure Looks Like Demolition This Time: M.D. Anderson Begins Taking Down the Prudential Tower

Yes, it’s probably been a while since the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center’s 18-story Houston Main Building — the former Prudential Tower at 1100 Holcombe St. designed by Kenneth Franzheim — has had its windows washed. But that’s not what these guys on the gondolas are doing to the 59-year-old building. Off with the limestone! Hey, how’d that fresco come out?
