Flint’s Genesee Towers Could Be Demolished By August [Video]

The landscape of downtown Flint could be in for some major changes as plans to demolish the Genesee Towers are moving very quickly.

What once seemed to be an impossible task is now on the verge of reality, thanks to Uptown Redevelopment Corporation.  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.

Flint gave a community block grant worth $750,000 combined with the $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. 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.”

This is happy and sad news as far as I’m concerned . . . while the building is basically demolishing itself with the help of gravity, I had big plans for the Towers.  A huge indoor water slide, Ghost tours and rooftop garden were just a few of my business ventures involving the Towers.  I suppose that tearing it down is what’s best for the city though.
