Art planned for site of Flint's tallest building

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

A temporary public art project will rise in the space left by the demolition next weekend of Flint's tallest building.

The 19-story Genesee Towers building is scheduled to come down at 10 a.m. on December 22nd.

Uptown Reinvestment Corp. says it aims for the building to collapse within its own footprint. The company bought the downtown building from the city for $1.

Plans would transform the site into Exploration Park, a family-friendly plaza with a science theme. It's part of a larger downtown redevelopment effort.

Flint Public Art Project director Stephen Zacks says his group is creating a temporary public art piece for the site. He isn't saying what the art project will be or how long it will be in place.
