Clean-Up Underway After Schwind Building Implosion Rattles Downtown
UPDATE: Clean up in underway in downtown Dayton after the implosion of the Schwind building over the weekend.
The implosion leveled the 12 story building, and it went off without a hitch. The Schwind building came down to make room for Sinclair student housing.
It will take several weeks to clear away the debris from the site.
DAYTON -- More than 50 people witnessed the Schwind building come down Saturday morning.
According to project manager Scott Wells with Steve Rauch Inc. the entire operation went extremely smooth.
"I expected a lot more debris out in the street. We knew there was going to be a lot of dust, but for the most part it fell where it was suppose to fall and there was very little debris out in the street," Wells said.
People started gathering around 7:00 Saturday morning to watch the building fall down.
"You could hear four or five big booms like an earthquake," David Griffin said.
"Windows over there were moving, I was shaking a little," Trey Everette said.
"That was a lot louder, lot of more commotion than I thought it was going to be," said Amanda Showalter," a freshman at Alter High School, who set off the explosives.
The only damage to other buildings was a small six-inch hole to the Dayton Grand Hotel.
"You could definitely hear the booms from the rooms, felt like the room was shaking. I had a bunch of family members who were with me who were sound asleep. They all flew out of their beds immediately," said Griffen.
There were also concerns that some people may breathe in the dust, but fortunately no one was hurt.
"The prevailing winds pushed everything to the south and nobody was hurt, no major damage, so to me it was a good day," Wells explained.
"It was actually kind of incredible, it was pretty neat. I thought they were well organized, too. It's hard to believe they can drop a building and have everything around it not be affected by what they did so they honestly did a great job," said Griffen.
The building was torn down to make way for a $22 million development to house Sinclair Community College students.
