What was supposed to be a simple implosion turned out to be a bit of a blunder. The Zip Feed Mill destruction is not over.

The building is still standing after a scheduled set of blasts on the east part of the structure failed to topple the structure. The building tilted to the east and dropped about thirty feet before stopping where it sits now.

Henry Carlson Project Manager Eric Schuler says. “The building sat down into the basement.”

Schuler says crews will attempt to finish the demolition Monday with more conventional methods. Wrecking balls will be used to finish the job.
