VIDEO: Wilshire's Columbia Savings Building Comes Crumbling Down

From the L.A. Conservancy, a video chronicle of the 1965 Columbia Savings Building teardown. As the organization notes:

demolition of the 1965 Columbia Savings Building. This important example of postwar bank architecture - which later served as Wilshire Grace Church - stood at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and La Brea Avenue on Los Angeles' Miracle Mile. Its demolition began on December 4, 2009, hours after the Los Angeles City Council approved a large mixed-use development for the site. Demolition was completed in late January 2010.

Sadly, another one bites the dust.
