When you consider the building’s structure, you can guess their problem: it’s impossible to get a crane in there, or any large materials or equipment for that matter. The façade surrounds the building, and the building tapers towards the top. They need to remove at least some of the top levels to drop a crane down, but somehow they’d also need to knock out the floors first. It’s not like most buildings where you can easily leave the façade standing while you demolish everything else behind it.
