The article announces the suspension of construction at Cosmopolitan's west tower after negotiations broke down between Deutsche Bank and MGM Mirage. It is alleged that Deutsche Bank, owner of the building, does not have a license to operate a casino and had signed an agreement with Hilton Hotels Corp. regarding the project. The suspension led to the lay-off of three hundred painters, causing unions including the Painters Union Local 159 to discuss the matter with the project's general contractor, Perini Building Co.
