Implosion brings down former Houston hotel

HOUSTON (AP) - A 10-story former downtown Houston hotel has been demolished to make way for new apartments.

A crowd was on hand Sunday to watch the implosion of what had been the Ben Milam Hotel. The structure was built in the 1920s.

City officials last month granted a permit to bring down the building and clear the way for new housing.

Developers plan a nearly 400-unit apartment complex.
