Date fixed for Keystone Towers shot…

Indianapolis eyesore set to fall at the end of this month.

The Keystone Towers building on the north side of Indianapolis is scheduled for implosion 8 a.m. Aug. 28. The 15-story apartment complex near the Indiana State Fairgrounds was built in 1973, but it has been abandoned since 2003 and had become a haven for squatters, drug dealers and illegal dumping.

Advanced Explosive Demolitions will perform the implosion, under subcontract by Indianapolis-area contractor Denney Excavating. Demolition crews will be going door to door in the coming weeks to talk with about 475 residents living inside the 1,000-foot safety zone around Keystone Towers, and some residents may be taken to temporary shelters the day of the implosion.
