Waiting on Genesee Towers demolition date

Posted: Updated:

There's still no word on when the Genesee Towers building in downtown Flint will be imploded.

Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, the owners of the building, released this statement to WNEM-TV5 today:

"The Uptown Reinvestment Corporation will be releasing a statement in the next few days. The statement will include the date of demolition of the Towers."

The demolition project was originally supposed to happen before the Crim Festival of Races in August. However, Uptown was unable to secure all the appropriate funding for the estimated $4 million project. Uptown says they have received funding through a combination loan and grant, with some of that money being used to help relocate the Flint Farmer's Market.

The Genesee Towers have been part of the downtown Flint skyline since the building's completion in 1968.
