NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Part of the Vanderbilt campus is getting a new look this weekend when the Carmichael West Tower three came down.

The implosion process took place just after 9 a.m. Saturday

Nearly 400 pounds of explosives were used to bring the building down. Holes were been drilled on every other floor of the 14-level building and filled with dynamite.

The implosion is just one scheduled for the Carmichael West dorms. Tower 4 will be taken down later this year. They'll be replaced with new dorms at the corner of West End Ave. and 25th Ave. South.
