Judge OKs Demolition Of Flawed Harmon Hotel Tower

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge has granted permission for owners of the CityCenter development to demolish a flawed, half-built hotel tower on the Las Vegas Strip.

Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez ruled Friday, after development owners completed a fourth phase of testing on the Harmon Hotel tower. CityCenter officials say demolition could happen within a year.

The Harmon was supposed to be a 48-story-tall component of the glittery $8.5 billion CityCenter project that opened in December 2009.

But inspectors found construction flaws that CityCenter consultants say could cause the building to collapse in a strong earthquake.

A trial is set for 2014 to decide whether the company or contractor Tutor Perini Building Co. is responsible for $400 million in damage claims.

Lawyers for Tutor Perini didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.
