Home » Tropicana demolition permit approved; fall implosion expected

Clark County has approved a commercial demolition permit for Tropicana owner Bally’s Corp. that values the hotel’s implosion at $15 million.

The permit application was filed April 11 and approved April 20. Bally’s has until Oct. 20 to carry out the demolition, according to county records. The permit is ready to be issued, pending Bally’s paying over $48,000 in fees associated with the application.

Plans call for the Rat Pack-era hotel to be brought down to make way for future development on the site, including the Oakland Athletics’ planned $1.5 billion, 33,000-seat ballpark.

Bally’s Chairman Soo Kim told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Wednesday that the company is planning for a September or October implosion of the property. But that is dependent on demolition company GGG Demolition Inc. obtaining the proper permits.
