LAS VEGAS (AP) - A newspaper review of public records shows that
the general contractor building the $8.7 billion CityCenter complex on the Las Vegas Strip has not resolved numerous construction discrepancies cited by inspectors.
Officials for Perini Building Co. and MGM Mirage, one of the project's partners, say every discrepancy will be fixed before the six high-rise towers open to the public.
The project, an MGM Mirage partnership with Dubai World, is scheduled to open in stages starting later this year.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal said its review of Clark County building records shows that Perini has not fixed 69 percent of its discrepancies at the Harmon Hotel & Spa as of Feb. 13.
In January, hotel officials said structural defects would delay the Harmon's opening and force it to be shortened by 22 floors.
