The remains of the Cosmopolitan on the Canal project continued to smolder today as a small crew of firefighters worked to put out remaining hot spots. They were using a crane to demolish a portion of the building’s remaining facade so they could reach some of the smoking remains of the $33-million apartment and retail development, said Mark Conover, a spokesman for developer Flaherty & Collins Properties. He said company officials, insurance adjusters and structural engineers are waiting for the fire department to clear the site before determining whether any of the building is salvageable.
