The Holiday Inn Select off 75 Central Expressway in Dallas TX saw it's last moment at 7:59am Sunday morning. At 8am on the dot, the building imploded.
Up until 7am, people were allowed at the site in order to get a good view of the implotion. Hundreds of people showed up to watch this building come down. The highway was closed for a while in order to allow the dust to clear.
What will go in its place? An 83 acre development of luxury condos, townhomes, senior living and medical offices. All this is expected to be completed fairly quickly, by December 2009.
