Controlled implosions of buildings are generally mesmerising to watch, and this one is no different.

19 buildings — each seven to 12 stories high — were destroyed simultaneously to make way for a new business center in Hankou, Hubei, central China. 

The implosion was reportedly the largest in China, covering 15 hectares in area and required more than 5 tons of explosives in 120,000 locations.

Watch how close the implosions were to surrounding buildings — and an adjacent operational train line.
