Implosion brings down 12-story building in downtown Dayton – VIDEO
The implosion took just seconds on Saturday morning as the building that once housed apartments fell onto itself.
The blast from the Schwind building echoed through downtown Dayton.
A demolition company official says that everything went well and that the amount of debris in the street was less than expected.
The demolition is to make room for a major residential development that will house hundreds of students. A historic portion of the former Dayton Daily News newspaper building that’s next door will be preserved.
The Schwind building dates to 1913.
