To get in and out of the nearest metro station, I pass through a parking garage. Over the past year I have noticed engineers looking at it, marking columns, and spots in the concrete ceilings that have started to break loose and fall - watch your head. A few months ago metro closed about half of the parking spaces, apparently the structure has started swaying when full loaded and cars are driving in and out. Not a big sway, but enough to crack loose chunks of concrete that then fall on people and cars. Watch your head!
When I lived in Orlando, a new office tower went up downtown with a copper colored glass exterior, except the glue holding the windows in didn't cope well with Florida heat and humidity, you had to look up as you walked by to keep from being hit by falling glass panels, the locals nicknamed it the Giant Copper Whopper Dropper.
So what should we call our unfriendly neighborhood parking garage?
the concrete crusher?ReplyDelete
