Some speculate that a tornado so severely damaged the building during Hurricane Laura's landfall. Others say the windows on the side of the building weren't rated to withstand the power of Hurricane Laura's winds.

The Hertz Investment Group (HIG), the owner of the 41-year-old building, had estimated the renovation would cost over $150 million. The tower was built in 1981 and is 22 stories tall.

We reported a few weeks ago that the building is now set to see it's final fate with a Las Vegas casino style implosion.

This is a bitter sweet story for SWLA residents. For so long it was an icon in the sky that symbolized Lake Charles. It was the first thing you noticed when crossing over the Calcasieu River bridge. I remember driving past it as a kid and marveling at how gigantic the building was to me.

On the other hand, it reminds us every day of the utter destruction left in the wake of Hurricane Laura.
