Over four days in June, More Hall, the retired administrative office building at the corner of Commonwealth Avenue and St. Thomas More Road, was demolished by a 651-horsepower Komatsu excavator—the biggest in Boston. The three-story brick structure, built in 1954 to house the Law School, will be replaced by a 490-bed residence hall due to open in 2016.
