With whimper and whistling wind, Sir Norman Foster's aborted Harmon Hotel - the elliptical City Center cylinder - is nearly gone.

Harmon Hotel Tower Las Vegas Removed

Poof... and there goes Jim's Mistake's pet mistake. Harmon was a once glorious structure, conceived by unreal real estate zeal and stillborn via botched rebar, whose only benefit was making millions of dollars for hundreds of lawyers. Oh and building wraps.

Goodbye Harmon, we'd say we missed you but...

Woah ! Someone tell the guys to stop demolition asap ! The place is at the right level to open up a mega CVS/Walgreeens.

It's highly unlikely to become a Walgreens seeing as there's already on at that intersection as part of the Harmon Corner complex, not to mention there's another one across the street from the CVS that is between Mandarin Oriental and Monte Carlo. CVS has already announced plans to build one in front of Bally's, so who knows if they would one between it and existing one previously mentioned.

The most likely development would be expanding Crystals and putting a Harmon Ave. entrance to the mall.

Wait Vespa; you mean I need to walk either across the street and down to Bally's to hit a CVS? Or over to MC?

That's prime location for another CVS. Perhaps MGM can pick up the Chrysler dealership that was originally supposed to go to TI, too. Think of the sweet, sweet eye-candy you could have there. Chrysler 200s and a nice display of orthopedic foot inserts, right there... In front to the wonderfully successful Crystals.

MGM could have it all with that concrete, if they just play their cards right. It's probably still more structurally sound than Luxor.

I think andybflo may have hit on an interesting thought. Wynn has an on-site Ferrari and Maserati dealership and the Palazzo used to have a Lamborghini dealership, so how about a Tesla store? Tesla does have a store and service center in Las Vegas, but it's not in a prominent location at all (It's tucked away on a side street next to a bunch of undeveloped land and a small subdivision off of Jones Blvd. south of the Beltway.).

Chuck,
that is some solid gold writing, there. (*bows respectfully*)
And the comments, too.... absolutely 24 karat.

(I'll bet Harmon's remains really are more structurally sound than Luxor. Maybe even Mandalay.)

Good riddance, Now if we can just get on with removing that other empty blue building farther to the north.

Tesla in that spot would work but I am missing the people wandering around the slowly shrinking Harmon already. Even the detour was screwed up.
