The last of the four illegal apartment complexes in Maradu, was razed down through controlled implosion method on Sunday, marking the completion of the demolition drive against the waterfront high rises ordered by the Supreme Court over three months ago.
This came a day after two buildings were razed in compliance with a Supreme Court order passed last year. Jain Coral cove, a 55-metre high-rise, was brought down at 11 am today. The controlled demolition was executed without any hiccups. Visuals showed the debris rising to at least three storeys high and was contained within the site. Another building of the same height, Golden Kayaloram, was demolished at 2 pm today.
On Saturday, the first 19-storey building — H20 Holy Faith apartment — was levelled in seconds. A few minutes later, the 16-storey high twin towers of Alfa Serene were pulled down simultaneously.
