The Customs House development encompasses a full restoration of the historic Customs House building at Wharf and Courtney streets into luxury condominiums. A seven-storey new-build wing will replace a 1959 addition fronting onto Government Street.
16,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space will front onto thoroughfares surrounding the project.

Luckily nobody was hurt here. A loader appears to have been a little overloaded as it approached its dumping spot on the fourth floor of the soon-to-be demolished 1950's-era addition to the Customs House building. According to witnesses, nobody was injured.

The above story (including the photo on the website) suggests that the shell of 1950s section will remain and we know that isn't true.
Oops! That's not quite on point. I'll let them know.
