(Las Vegas, NV)  —  The first step in demolishing the troubled Harmon Hotel will soon be underway.

A judge has approved a plan to remove debris from the unfinished 26-story tower on the Las Vegas Strip.

A planned implosion of the Harmon Hotel has been scrapped, and the building will be dismantled one floor at a time.  The actual demolition is on hold, because the project’s insurance company wants to conduct its own inspection.

The $8.5 billion Harmon Hotel is at the center of a upcoming construction defect trial.
