I don't think this classifies as a bug really because I don't think they added the ability to be able to that (by all means correct me if I'm wrong). Having said that I agree and hope they allow this in the future.

Hello and thank you for the report! As of right now having to bulldoze the entire building instead of just the sub-upgrade is As Designed. However, I will pass on the feedback to the development team. Have a great day!

Add another voice to that request. I wanted to move the playground on the elementary school to the other side of the building, but I could only move the entire building, so I went to bulldoze that playground... well. No dice. Again, whole building. :/
Did that, but grr, it gets rid of all the students and whatnot.

I checked with the designers and we'll be looking into the building upgrades at some point in the future. Thank you for the feedback!

How is this marked "as designed". I misplaced one upgrade and now I have to remove the whole building to fix this? Dumb game design if you ask me.
I don't understand this decision either. We want a city simulation that is as realistic as possible and we can't tear down parts of buildings, but we can simply move entire buildings. :)
"As designed" means the program code does what it was intended to. It means, it is not a bug. A bug is code that is not doing what it should.

I fully agree, however, that the design is very bad here, so the design must be changed to allow users to delete upgrade modules without deleting the whole building.

"As designed" is a typical response from an overworked and frustrated programmer / designer :D

We did get a response from co_martsu indicating a desire to look into it in future though! <3
You're also completely unable to "Rebuild" burned down or weather ruined additions, necessitating a wipe and repurchasing of the service building in question, very frustrating!

I placed an upgrade on wrong location and have to delete and rebuild it.. This is even worse for recycle centers and landfills etc as it causes pollution on group unless i move trash first.
Add possibility to remove upgrade and MOVE UPGRADE.
If its "As Designed" then its TERRIBLE DESIGNED.
Instead remove TAXI STOP from Train Station I have to REMOVE WHOLE TRAIN STATION???
