Will The Harmon Hotel At CityCenter Be Imploded?
CityCenter opened in December 2009 with great fanfare and has a variety of open hotels nearby including Aria and the Mandarin Oriental. The 400-room Harmon Hotel & Spa was originally supposed to also include 200 residential units but that project was canceled. It was trimmed into a 27-story hotel that was supposed to open this year. The Harmon was designed by the firm of English architect Lord Norman Foster.
No decision on the hotel's fate will be made soon. MGM will hire consultants to evaluate the problems with the building and present possible solutions. Those findings will be presented to the court in October 2011 and no decision is likely to occur before the court makes a ruling, expected sometime in 2012.
