UPDATE 6/1/2016 – The LVCVA has confirmed the implosion date and time! Breaking News: June 14th leaked as Riviera implosion date
As we’ve been eagerly awaiting a date for the Riviera implosion, there comes a new update. We have just received word via Greg C that an employee of Marriot SpringHill Suites has posted the following on his/her Facebook page:
“OK everyone here is the latest updated information on the Riviera. One small warehouse and half of the convention space have been torn down as well as two small parking garages. The main tower is still standing as well as the tower towards Las Vegas Blvd. the scheduled implosion for the large tower will be 2 AM on June 14. I will definitely try to be there and get a good video shot of it for my fellow Vegas Peeps!!!”
Greg C said “Still nothing OFFICIAL, but it would make sense that the Marriott SpringHill Suites employees would know what the date is as they are in the “inclusion zone”–where debris and dust are considered a hazard.”
Greg has been following the demolition progress of The Riviera for some time. Here are his latest pics of the progress in the slideshow below.
