LAS VEGAS (AP) — The hulking, empty Harmon Hotel tower at CityCenter will stay up for now.

Clark County District Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez issued an order on Friday requiring the casino owners to postpone demolishing the flawed tower. Her office confirmed the order to The Associated Press.

CityCenter owners have been waiting to demolish the half-built hotel tower on a prime piece of Strip real estate since 2008, when inspectors found structural flaws that doomed the building.

But the general contractor that built the Harmon has argued that the building needs to stay up to serve as evidence in an eventual lawsuit.

On Friday, Gonzalez ruled that building should stay up so that more tests can be done.

CityCenter is operated and half-owned by MGM Resorts International.
