December implosion planned for Flint's tallest building
FLINT, Mich. (AP) - An implosion planned for December is taking down Flint's tallest building.
Uptown Reinvestment bought downtown Flint's 19-story Genesee Towers in March from the city for $1.
Multiple news outlets are reporting Jacksonville, Fla.-based Drilling & Blasting will handle implosion engineering and blasting efforts, with help from Michigan-based Burnash Wrecking Inc. and Certified Abatement Services Inc.
The demolition is part of a $32 million redevelopment plan.
Uptown Reinvestment President Tim Herman says he knows people have been waiting for news on the delayed demolition project. He says "the plan is coming together nicely."
