The implosion went off without a hitch at 8:00 a.m.
The building is located on the east side of North Central Expressway nearly Royal Lane.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Highway 75 (North Central Expressway) was closed in both directions shortly before 8 a.m. between Meadow Lane and Royal Lane.
The highway was re-opened after the dust from the implosion cleared.
Spectators watched the implosion from a parking garage behind the Hotels.com building.
Crews moved in quickly to water down the debris and begin moving it away from the site, once cleared construction on a new 83-acre mixed-use development will begin.
The new development will have high-rise condominiums, luxury town homes, senior living and medical office buildings.
The development will be completed by December 2009.
