Kodak Implodes the Iconic Building 53

Kodak has imploded the iconic Building 53 in the Eastman Business Park.  It’s not the first of the buildings to go, but it is definitely the one that everyone knows — the 9 stack sitting on top has been a landmark in the location since the building’s construction in 1923.  This isn’t the first building in Eastman Business Park that Kodak implodes, but it is one of the more well-known.  Watch the video below of the implosion, from a pretty decent close distance!

Here’s a bad ass DRONE VIEW of the demolition:

Another amazing view:

Ok, one more, plus an interview with some of the demo guys:

Demolition company Diacon was involved in the blast engineering; MB Glick was also involved in the demo, but I do not know the capacities.  Pretty cool videos, huh?

For another awesome demolition video, check out the Demolition of Texas Stadium, filmed by awesome person and dear friend Jessica Amspoker!
