Beirut 1975? Sarajevo 1995? Try Vancouver, circa '00'. Nelson Street. But this giant tower was under attack alright: from wind, rain, chloride, acid, UV rays – you name it. AAA Restorations repairs it.
While we're up here: The old monolith receives a complete exterior pressure washing. It hasn't felt this good in years.

Poor initial construction conspired with natural forces to create this disaster. The damage seen here is typical of that all around the structure.
