Building 53 at Eastman Business Park in Rochester, New York, is scheduled to be taken down about 8 a.m. July 18 with an implosion.
Kodak is planning to set up a "command center" for media cameras to record and broadcast the event. No official public viewing area has been established for the event, said Kodak spokesperson Kelly Mandarano.
Built in 1923, the 250,000-square-foot 53 building was used for acetate film base manufacturing.
At its height, Eastman Business Park, formerly called Kodak Park, was the largest industrial complex in the Northeast. Since 1995, more than 80 structures on the 1,300-acre site have been taken down.
While Kodak still owns the property, the building was sold about two years ago to Moses B. Glick LLC, a salvage company in Fleetwood, Pennsylvania.
Dykon will be perfroming the implosion.
