Genesee Towers Could Be Torn Down By August [VIDEO]

wjrt

Time to take some pictures. The skyline in downtown Flint will forever be changed when the Genesee Towers come down. They have an ambitious goal to tear down Genesee Towers in downtown Flint before the city’s biggest summer events, including Back to the Bricks and the Crim. Uptown Redevelopment Corporation says it’s moving forward with the project. The building’s title and ownership still has to be transferred to Uptown before anything can be done. Uptown President Tim Herman says that should happen within the next month.

With a community block grant from the city worth $750,000 and $3.2 million raised by Uptown, the money should be in place to bring the building down within months. “It will probably be imploded on a Sunday and we would bring the experts in who have done a number of these buildings across the country to do this work. The building is in deplorable shape, and people quite frankly are resistant to change and it’s difficult, but we know this is the right thing to do. Amen.

Downtown Flint will have a different view from the freeway.
