MGM Resorts Says It Will Demolish Flawed CityCenter Tower

Excerpt from Casino City Times: LAS VEGAS, Nevada — MGM Resorts International says there’s only one way out for the flawed 27-story Harmon Tower: explosives.

On Monday, the casino operator told Clark County officials that the structurally troubled Harmon Tower cannot be fixed and submitted a plan to implode the unfinished luxury hotel and condominium tower, which was to anchor the north end of the $8.5 billion CityCenter Aria Resort & Casino development.

MGM Resorts was responding to a directive from the Clark County Building Department, which sought a solution to public safety concerns surrounding the Harmon. Last month, a structural engineering firm said the building could collapse in a major earthquake.
