According to KRLD 1080, the Affiliated Computer Services building has been holding fast. Lloyd D. Nabors Demolition, the demolition company in charge of taking down the Leaning Tower, said they were going to work on bringing the tower down between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. Central today. But as you can see, the tower has resisted the demolition efforts so far.

Crews use crane to remove ‘Leaning Tower of Dallas’The now-viral local sensation fittingly named "The Leaning Tower of Dallas" is scheduled to be brought down Monday morning.2020-02-22T18:26:23.000Z

The building was nicknamed the “Leaning Tower of Dallas” after a previous demolition attempt failed to bring part of the building down.

What’s left of the high-rise on Central Expressway and Haskell Avenue isn’t a threat to anyone, a Lloyd D. Nabors Demolition spokesperson told CBS DFW. The implosion happened early Sunday morning, but only part of the building fell. The spokesperson said this wasn’t unusual. “As with many demolitions, the core and elevator shafts require additional demolition measures, and we will proceed with conventional demolition efforts over the course of the week utilizing a crane and wrecking ball.”

Here’s the moment when the Leaning Tower of Dallas was born.

Lloyd Nabors, president of Lloyd Nabors Demolition, told WFAA 8 that the building would be completely demolished by the end of Sunday, but that didn’t happen. He told WFAA 8: “It’s actually leaning in the direction to fall that we intended. It’s just a large parking lot– we have a lot of room, so we don’t have any safety concerns. We’re going to be taking it down from the backside, so we’re planning to have it come over in the parking lot, as planned.”

Here’s a photo from this morning, showing the wrecking ball near the Leaning Tower.

What’s left of the 11-story building has inspired some very impressive photos, along with a lot of jokes and memes, including photos people took with the Leaning Tower as if it were a tourist attraction.

For some, visiting has become like a pilgrimage.

One person commented that now they believe the elevator shaft is the safest place to be in a tornado.

And now, people are celebrating that the building survived the first wrecking ball attempt.

It even inspired a petition to keep the building up and make it an official part of Dallas.
