Better even than throwing a watermelon from a high place: officials announce coming implosion of Woodlands’ Timberloch Tower

1200 Timberloch, The Woodlands: coming implosion.

The Woodlands, March 10 – Woodlands Township and Montgomery County officials have announced the planned demolition of the 11-story Timberloch Tower in The Woodlands. Montgomery County Officials are working with demolition contractors and The Woodlands Township to prepare for a planned demolition project slated to take place over the next 6 weeks, culminating with the implosion of the existing 11 story Timberloch building on the site.

An anonymous resident of The Woodlands commented, “Watching a building implosion is an amazing experience. The implosion of the historic Desert Inn in Las Vegas was one of the greatest destructive entertainment experiences in modern history. It beat the time that I threw a full watermelon from the fourth floor of a hotel’s outside window that landed on the deck below and spewed watermelon seeds in a beautiful radius several hundred feet around with a spectacular hissing noise.” The anonymous resident sought treatment immediately after making those comments to The Golden Hammer.

As for Timberloch Tower, the existing parking structure next to the tower will be demolished first by conventional means over the next few weeks, while preparations and planning continues for the implosion, tentatively scheduled for the middle of April.  The Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office will review the plans for the unconventional implosion project, in collaboration with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Township Officials and the Pct. 3 Constable’s Office.

Officials with Montgomery County Pct. 3 Commissioner James Noack’s office will be working with the Montgomery County Engineer’s Office to review the demolition project’s traffic plans to minimize any impact to residents and visitors.

Additional updates will be provided as the project moves forward. A fun time will be had by all.
