BUFFALO, NY - The 11-story tower of the former Millard Fillmore Hospital will be demolished by implosion on Saturday, Oct. 3, at 7 a.m., according to a statement released by the Montante Group, the designated developer of the property, on Thursday.
Representatives of the company are traveling door-to-door to alert neighbors of the impending blast. They also plan to hold an informational session will be held sometime next week for area residents.
Montante is reconstructing the former hospital site into a mixed-use development that will include a grocery store, health-and-wellness center, residential apartments and condominiums, office space, and small retail shops.
Officials say more details about the implosion will be provided to the public at a press event next week.
