LAS VEGAS (AP) - Another sign of boom-and-bust Las Vegas is due to come down this weekend when demolition crews implode a nine-story unfinished concrete condominium structure several miles southwest of the Strip.

The 8 a.m. Sunday blast will take down a building in a development now known as the Gramercy.

It’ll be the second implosion this week in Sin City.

On Tuesday, explosives brought down most of the 12-story Clarion between the Strip and the convention center. A stubborn elevator shaft was pulled down hours later.

The Las Vegas Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1F7Bljf ) the Gramercy blast will make way for low-rise office and residential buildings near the 215 Beltway and Russell Road.

The 20-acre ManhattanWest project was mothballed about 2009.

The new owners are San Francisco-based Krausz Companies and WGH Partners of Las Vegas.
