The 31 story high rise known to many as the leaning tower on South Padre Island will soon be reduced to pieces.
Developers announced on Monday that the Ocean Tower Condominiums will be demolished in November. Construction of the Ocean Tower condos was halted in the summer of 2008 when a study showed that the building had sunk more than 14 inches. It was happening during construction of the condos and caused extensive cracks to the beams and columns. There is a pending lawsuit against the building engineers.
