The Harmon Hotel owned by MGM Resorts International that has been troubled by construction and structural problems before it has even opened, is trying to get approval from Clark County to implode. Work was stopped in 2010 and the building was planned for 47 floors but then stopped at 26 floors when defects in structure were discovered. As of December 2011 the issue is now in courts, MGM needs approval and wants to implode, but Tutor Perini Corp the building general contractor says the problem can be fixed. The hotel is part of the 8.5 billion City Center project it was planned as a boutique hotel. The Harmon legal battle continues with more than 200 million in disputes and leaves three options deconstruction, implode or to fix the structure.
