In fact, they report that
only four of the total had been able to be delivered
to their owners.
The others had been half finished, they were uninhabitable and with the passage of the years they deteriorated.
The spectacular blast
It is enough to see the images of the event of last August 27 to realize that the blast itself lasts only a few seconds.
But behind it there is a previous work of days that requires, for example, to
flood the foundations with rainwater and evacuate the residents
of the nearby neighborhoods.
In the distance, everyone was filming the demolition of the towers.

However, the demolition
did not end up as successful
as they hoped.

one of the towers is still standing severely tilted
to one side.
Background in China
It is not the first time that China has carried out a massive and simultaneous blasting of buildings.
For example, in 2017 they
destroyed no less than 36 skyscrapers
in a controlled operation that lasted just 20 seconds.
