Florida Condo to be Imploded Sunday
The saying goes, out with the old and in with the new. But when the old is 30-story structure, getting it out is no easy task. A controlled implosion is scheduled for tomorrow (Sunday) morning in West Palm Beach Florida. Reader Howie G. sent me this tip about the fate hurricane-damaged, uninhabited condo tower at 1515 Flagler Drive. The implosion is expected to take just 6.5 seconds to bring the building down - making it the third-tallest building in the United States to be demolished in this manner.
