Vanderbilt to implode Carmichael Towers East

Vanderbilt University will implode Carmichael Towers East buildings Nos. 1 and 2 on West End Avenue on July 31 at 9 a.m.

The implosion will come almost two years to the day that VU imploded the 14-story Carmichael Tower 3 (part of Carmichael Towers West) in July 2019. The adjacent Carmichael Tower 4 was razed later that summer via mechanical means.

Located between 23rd and 24th avenues 2321 West End Ave., Carmichael Towers East opened in 1966.

The approximately 15-minute process will be overseen by both Layton Construction (which is the general contractor of Vanderbilt’s so-called West End Neighborhood) and Controlled Demolition Inc. A permit, valued at $1.4 million, has been issued.
