Stardust Demolition In Full Swing, Implosion Scheduled for March

Implosion fanataics should circle March 2007 on their calendars, as Boyd Gaming has tentatively set a ballpark date for the coming deconstruction of the historic Stardust.

The top few floors of the building have already been gutted and their purplypink windows have been removed. You can see clear through the building now. Boyd reps said they will be recycling as much of the left over materials as possible - very cool.

Much of the property's low-rise buildings will be demolished before the implosion, which is expected to take place in the early morning hours for minimal disruption to traffic along the Strip and Industrial Road. Controlled Demolition of Baltimore, which has handled many implosions of closed Strip casinos over the years, is working with New York-based LVI Services on the Stardust removal.

"The idea is to minimize as much of the debris from the implosion as possible," Stillwell said. "We're doing what we can to recycle as much of the material as possible. The result is that all that will be left is the steel and concrete."
