What Might Have Been

I was just poking around, curious about something, and I found this relic of a bygone era, how The Harmon was -- and still is -- identified, imagined and described by the the website for Foster + Partners, its architects.

The ultimate luxury getaway, the Harmon Hotel is a non-gaming hotel that forms a striking gateway to the MGM Project in Las Vegas. Fronting the Strip at the corner of Harmon Avenue, it will be one of the tallest buildings on this famed Las Vegas boulevard.

Of course, not so much, eh? So sad. The Harmon, incidentally, is no longer mentioned at all on Lord Norman Foster's Wikipedia page.

I can not imagine how they would possibly demolish the building. What a nightmare that is going to create.
