The 19-story Genesee towers building, the tallest building in Flint, fell like dominos Sunday morning when one thousand pounds of explosives imploded the building.

200 construction workers were on site with at least 70 first responders on stand-by.

Uptown reinvestment corporation bought the structure from the city for $1.

Plans are to transform the site into exploration park, a family-friendly plaza with a science theme.

It's part of a larger downtown redevelopment effort.

Ahead of the planned implosion, streets surrounding the building were closed off.
