Usually when Las Vegas hotels are imploded it's because they are decades old and run down. But the ill-fated Harmon Hotel at CityCenter will likely be turned to rubble before anyone ever sets foot in it.
The troubled Harmon Tower at CityCenter was deemed so structurally unfit that an earthquake would likely take the building down. Now, MGM Resorts has said they will demolish the building before anyone ever steps foot in it.
An engineering firm said the defects of an unfinished CityCenter hotel are "pervasive" and would likely collapse in an earthquake. Construction on the Harmon hotel tower stalled a few years ago, when the county discovered structural problems.
