I agree that we should be catious of Vrancor, and watch this demolition like a hawk.

Yes he has a covenant with the federal government that prevents him from demolishing the entire building, but he also has a demolition permit from the city permitting demolition of the entire building.

If he demolishes half, and an engineer deems the rest unsafe, he'll have to tear the rest down and violate his covenant with the federal government (I wonder if it stipulates damages?).

In the ideal situation, the city would make him hold off on further demolition (since he's stated he won't demolish the whole building, and this is at odds with his permit) and make him apply for a proper permit, perhaps requiring an engineer's report outlining who the demolition will be done in a manner that ensures the structural stability of the undemolished portion.
