The next phase of the Sankey Hi-Rise demolition is cleanup of the debris and that could take about a month.
That’s much longer than the 8 hours it took for the south tower to fall after demolition charges were set Tuesday morning.
Springfield Housing Authority director Jackie Newman says all area residents are back in their homes after the long ordeal.
After the site is cleared, Newman says the SHA will begin the process of developing a new project that will bring 92 units for senior living.
Demolition of the Sankey Hi-Rise cost SHA $1.7 million.
