Planned 49-Story Vegas Hotel Gets Kneecapped to 28 Floors Because of Construction Fail

A hotel designed by famous architect Lord Norman Foster will be cut down to little more than half of its intended design because of improperly installed rebar on 15 floors.

The hotel, called the Harmon, was just essentially "kneecapped." What did they do, take an X-acto knife across the blueprints? You have to wonder what Foster thinks of all this. [LasVegasSun via BLDGBLOG]
