    Would it be also correct to say: They want to tear down them.
    That version doesn't work, Anne. If you want to use the pronoun "them", you should use "They want to tear them down."

    Yes, that word order (tear down buildings) is correct. You could also say "tear buildings down". Both are correct but keeping "tear down" together allows you to put a longer object than "buildings"
