Implosion of Troost Office Building – at Rockhill Greens & Research Brookside Campus

A former medical office building located at 6700 Troost was imploded this morning to make way for Rockhill Greens, an affordable senior housing development. I have embedded a video of the implosion below, courtesy of Rockhill Greens. As a neighbor in extremely close proximity who was not informed of the scheduled implosion, you can imagine it was quite an alarming series of loud blasts. Mister Snodgrass and I rushed outside, and upon seeing the dust cloud, it was obvious what had happened. I only wish I could have seen it in person!

I hope this means that construction will begin soon. Rockhill Greens will be a great addition to Brookside, creating jobs, eliminating blighted office buildings, and bringing residents to the area.
