Lincoln Equities Group (LEG) imploded two six-story, 1.5 million-square-foot 1940’s-era buildings at Lincoln Logistics Bayonne on the Military Ocean Terminal (MOTBY) peninsula earlier this week.
Because the imploded buildings were constructed to withstand a bomb blast, the crew had to remove panels that made them bomb-proof. Workers then cut inside columns to place the explosives for the buildings’ implosion. This is the second of two implosions at the site: in 2018, a demolition crew imploded a 175-foot smokestack and a 150-foot steel water tower.
The demolition of the 153-acre site’s last remaining structures marks the completion of three years of site preparation work, clearing the way for construction of a United Parcel Service (UPS) regional hub facility.
