LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — What goes up must come down, even relics of 1950s Las Vegas. Clark County records show a commercial demolition implosion permit was filed Thursday morning for Tropicana Las Vegas, over three months after its last guest checked out in April.

The permit requests the implosion of its 22-story concrete Tropicana Club and 22-story steel Paradise Tower in “a single explosive event.” Documents show demolition companies would begin setting up by, at the earliest, September 30 and complete the work by October 8.

Representative of the Bally’s Corporation, the operator of the 1950s relic, declined to comment on specifics Thursday morning. They already announced that demolition would commence sometime in October without detailing how the two hotel towers would come down.

The permit is currently pending. This is a developing story, check back for updates.
