Implosion of Miami arena roof taped from nearby balcony

More than 100 pounds of explosives were rigged to the roof of the Miami Arena on Sunday to begin the demolition process.

The explosives were detonated and the roof caved as planned. Workers will pull down the walls of the iconic pink building in the coming weeks.

The arena opened in 1988 and has played host to the Miami Heat and the Florida Panthers, as well as many concerts.

It's not clear what will be located there next.
