NPR’s All Things Considered did a feature on Downtown Project and Tony Hsieh, including our featured project, the Downtown Container Park. Always fun when a project gets some national attention.
Check out the story on KNPR’s website.

We’ve blogged about this already but the online link to the ERN Southwest article is finally available. Click the link below to read more about the award Breslin Builders received for the Downtown Container Park from ENR Southwest.
ENR Southwest – Best Project 2014 – Best Office/Retail/Mixed Use Project: Downtown Container Park
On Friday, November 14, 2014, Breslin Builders’ Todd McBrayer and Steve Moore, attended the ENR Southwest Best Projects 2014 awards luncheon at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. ENR Southwest has recognized the Downtown Container Park as their Best Projects 2014 in the Office/Retail/Mixed-Use category.
Breslin Builders is honored and excited to add this award to others we have been part of the past, with one exception. This project is one were we provided both the design and the construction, delivering on the vision that Downtown Project and Tony Hsieh had for the corner of 7th and Fremont, and for the innovative use of shipping containers in a retail and mixed-use environment. It is not everyday that a company gets to do projects like the Downtown Container Park, a truly unique project in downtown Las Vegas, and one that we hope many other shipping container projects will use as their “research project” (just like Breslin Builders did with previous projects in the world).
We are grateful for the efforts of our entire team of engineers, designers, subcontractors, and employees that made this project possible.

It’s not everyday that something like this happens at one of your projects. Breslin Builders, which provided the design and construction for the project, is excited to see the the many different ways the Downtown Container Park is being used. I think it is fair to say this was never on our minds when we started the project. Enjoy!
