Monday night the Des Moines city council will vote on approval of an implosion that’s planned for a downtown building.
Iowa Methodist Medical Center wants to bring down its School of Nursing building at 1220 Pleasant Street. Officials say an implosion is preferred over typical demolition because it takes less time. According to documents, the building will come down in nine seconds.
The implosion is planned for 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 16th.
