On Saturday, crews imploded a 93-year-old former DTE Energy power plant in Marysville to make for a planned redevelopment of the site that will include a five-story hotel, condominiums, restaurants, retail, and more.

Crowds of people to watch the implosion — including our friends at the Motor City Drone Co., who sent us this stunning video of the "Mighty Marysville" coming down.



Watch the video below (because everything looks cooler from the eyes of a remotely controlled quadcopter.)
