WATCH: First Pasadena State Bank tower brought down in implosion

After standing for nearly 60 years, the First Pasadena State Bank tower came down Sunday morning in spectacular fashion. Crews set off a series of controlled explosions to bring the 15-story building to the ground.

Contractors are trying to salvage metal portions of the structure for recycling. A large portion of the bricks are supposed to be re-purposed to build an outdoor display on the City Hall Municipal Campus.

The Pasadena EDC will also donate a limited amount of bricks to the Pasadena Heritage Park and Museum to be sold in their gift shop.
