new 27-story hotel slated for demolition?

we're heard of ghost cities in china, but never anything like this:

MGM wants to implode 27-story hotel that never opened: "MGM Resorts International wants to implode a new 26-story hotel in downtown Las Vegas that has been plagued by construction and structural problems before it has even opened, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Unlike the Sands hotel, which was a Las Vegas landmark for decades before it was torn down, the Harmon Tower has never had a single guest."

this is the state of corporate america today: if you build it, it might be so shoddy that not only will they not come, but you will demolish it before it ever opens.

it's a sorry monument to the country this used to be. at least in china, the ghost cities are good experience for a country on the move...
