Mina Plaza towers demolished in seconds: watch video

ABU DHABI – After staying idle for years, Abu Dhabi’s abandoned Mina Plaza towers have been demolished within seconds.

Modon Properties on Friday (November 27) carried out the demolition job of the three towers using 6,000 kilograms of explosives and 18,000 detonators.

The area was cordoned off days ahead of the demolition work, and no one was injured when explosives were finally detonated to bring down the buildings.

The towers were demolished to make way for new development in the area.

Property developer Modon Properties said that new markets will be built to replace existing ones, such as a ish market, fruit and vegetable market, antique market, spices and retail shops.
