[VIDEO] Beautiful 13-Story Building Demolition in Downtown Dallas

When you need to demolish a building in a tight downtown setting, you make sure to hire people who have the right experience to do the job.  Controlled Demolition, Inc (CDI), was at it again recently, when they shared a video of a recent building implosion in Dallas, TX.

The former office building located at 505 North Ervay Street in downtown Dallas, TX had to be demolished to make way for First Baptist Dallas’ upcoming expansion project. Subcontracted by Dallas Demolition, CDI was able to take down the 13-story structure, which was built in the 1940s, in a single explosion sequence.

The implosion took place around 7:30am on June 29, 2019, according to Fox 4, and nearby roads were closed from 6am to 10am for safety.  Residents in adjacent buildings were asked to keep their windows closed due to the large dust clouds created by the falling reinforced concrete building.

While the city is still dealing with a recent unrelated crane collapse that killed a woman in her nearby apartment building, it was nice to see that appropriate safety measures were in place for this project.

You can watch the video of the implosion below.  In true CDI fashion, you won’t just get 1 angle, you’ll get a view from all of the angles.
