From what I have read and been told (hearsay in litigation terms) portions of the Trico Building roof are, literally, missing and the estimated cost is in the millions.

Personally, I find that difficult to believe and knowing first hand this type of reinforced concrete design, the rebar in the columns would have to be almost entirely corroded before this monolithic building was to ever become unstable.

Perfect example is the Webb Building where the roof had collapsed taking the third floor along with it and I know that building was post and beam construction so please spare me the innuendos on why this building should be demolished.
