Two luxury apartment complexes -- H2O Holy Faith and Alfa Serene twin towers -- were brought down on Saturday in compliance with the last year apex court order.

While the 55-metre-high Jain Coral Cove will be brought down at 11 am on Sunday, another building of the same height, Golden Kayaloram, will be demolished at 2 pm, official sources said.

However, the exact time of implosion could change depending on weather conditions and safety. The blast will last only a few seconds and the debris will be contained to the site, they said.
