A local high rise has now been reduced to a pile of rubble.

The Auburn Terrace high rise in East Liberty was imploded around 9:30 a.m.

The building was located in the 6200 block of Auburn Street.

The Housing Authority received a grant from the federal government to pay for the project.

It is trying to get rid of outdated buildings and put residents in better housing.
