DALLAS (AP) - Part of downtown Dallas has a new look following the implosion of a vacant eight-story office building.

Demolition crews on Sunday used explosives to bring down the nearly 90-year-old Thomas Building.

The structure, which formerly housed cotton-related businesses, has been empty for almost 20 years. Preservation Dallas in 2004 listed the Thomas Building as endangered.

The site is expected to be turned into a parking lot.
