BOOM: There Goes The Harmon!
To no surprise, it looks as if MGM will be imploding The Harmon – aka “The Largest Billboard in Vegas.” Here’s the scoop from 8 News Now.
8 News Now has learned that CityCenter is submitting proposed plans to Clark County to implode the troubled Harmon Tower.
MGM Resorts International has said it has safety concerns about the unfinished tower and is currently involved with a lawsuit with the builder.
Construction halted on the Harmon Tower in 2009 after MGM claims they found major construction defects. Perini Construction blames MGM’s engineers for a bad design, but adds Harmon is stable and all problems can be repaired.
A report released last month by Clark County’s Building Division says Harmon could completely collapse in an earthquake.
No surprise, not really even news. I just like implosions. BOOM! Note, video audio is NSFW
