READING (CBS) – A six-story building on Jacob Way in Reading has been reduced to a pile of rubble.

The town performed a controlled demolition to bring down what used to be the Addison Wesley Publishing building Saturday morning.

Police stopped traffic on several roads, including Route 128 while crews set off explosives to implode the building.

Once the dust settles, contractors will remove the remaining debris.

Developers are planning on building houses on the land.

    I see the air conditioner on the roof. I wonder if the freon was removed or if it is even required to be. If not removed first, it is certainly a greenhouse gas now.
