Description
The Minami tower was cancelled in 1991 when the Japanese investors pulled out.

The existing buildings were demolished but construction never progressed beyond excavation and became a hole in the ground the city had to pay to repair.

The Tower was going to be built in Downtown Las Vegas, today the a federal building now stands in its place.

The tower was announced in 1989 and was supposed to be the tallest building in the state. If it was built it would have been the tallest in the city from 1991 to 2005 - nearly 15 years.

The Minami Tower was also known as the Minami Hole until 1997 when the site was cleared for a courthouse.

Grond broke in 1991 but the project stalled later that year due to financial problems.
