A large structure in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood was torn down to make room for a green space.
"Realistically, it's a bad complex," said Miami Commissioner Frank Carollo.
Carollo backed the project, and even operated the gears to throw the first punch.
The graffiti-ridden eye sore off Northwest 3rd Street was unsafe and known to be used for criminal activity.
"Disrepair, roof leaks caused the wood to rot," said Ray Benitez with the City of Miami.
Despite the rough shape, homeless would set up shop inside. But thanks to a federal grant and $200,000 from the city, it was finally torn down.
"Little by little will start coming, it's apart of the revitalization of Little Havana," said Carollo.
The location will become a green space. The debris is expected to be cleared by the weekend.
