Judge Sets Deadline In Hotel Demolition Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge says she will OK plans for owners of the CityCenter development to demolish a flawed, half-built hotel tower on the Las Vegas Strip, unless insurers can show they need more time to investigate.

At a Friday hearing, Clark County District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez said she would give insurer FM Global one week to explain its need to delay the demolition of the Harmon Tower.

FM Global wrote the insurance policy covering the Harmon’s construction, and is investigating CityCenter’s $393.8 million claim for a total loss.

The judge will hold another hearing on Dec. 13 to determine how much more time, if any, to give FM Global.

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