A new Guinness World Record was just set for the “World’s Tallest Building Imploded with Explosives.”

The 533-foot-tall Meena Plaza in Abu Dhabi was imploded with explosives which required 18,000 DRILL HOLES in the building to ensure it fell.

The entire process to bring it down took only 10 seconds. The unfinished tower was demolished to pave the way for an all-new wharf.

The new record surpassed the 520-foot-tall J. L. Hudson’s Department Store in Detroit, Michigan, when it was demolished in 1998. (Video HERE)
