The wrecking crews descended this week on the former headquarters of the Texas Press Association at 718 W. Fifth St.

Austin-based Riverside Resources purchased the site and is building Fifth & West, a 39-story condo tower that will be one of the tallest buildings in the city when it's finished in fall 2017. Click on the photo to see a slideshow of the site and renderings of the new tower.

Demolition is expected to take 15 working days, according to project spokesman Scott Dunaway.
