RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A 21-story office building in downtown Richmond is scheduled for demolition next weekend.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that a 15-block zone around Dominion Energy’s One James River Plaza office tower will be closed around the building before its scheduled implosion on May 30.

The Richmond-based energy giant will be live streaming video of the demotion on its Facebook page. The company and Richmond authorities are warning residents to stay away from downtown that morning.
