The iconic, game-changing venue that forever altered Atlanta and the state of Georgia’s cultural, architectural and economic landscape – was imploded at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, November 20. Taking a mere 12 seconds to flatten the building’s approximate 250,000 cubic yards of concrete, the implosion utilized more than 10,000 man-hours of preparation, 4,800 total pounds of strategically placed explosives, and approximately 6 miles of detonating cord and 1 mile of electrical wire connections.
