The Leaning Tower of Tarentum is coming down. The building's owner, Ron Gilliette Inc. of Harrison, began the demolition work Tuesday. A former laundromat that was condemned in 2009, the two-story brick building in the 200 block of Fourth Avenue was deemed by the borough to be in “imminent danger of collapse” in March. The structure has been tilted for decades; however, the lean became more pronounced over the past cold winter.
