The Las Vegas Review Journal did an article about the new restaurants opening in Downtown Las Vegas, three of which Breslin Builders provided both design and construction services for, as well as the facade remodel.
Breslin Builders last restaurant in the Sears Retail building at 7th and Carson is finishing up and getting ready to open in a few weeks. As with the other two restaurants (Glutton and Vegenation), as well as the facade remodel, Breslin Builders provided design-build services for this project. Below are some progress photos of the interior finishes.
Breslin Builders has provided design-build services for not only the shell facade remodel, but also all three of the restaurants mentioned in this article. We look forward to finally being able to complete this work once NV Energy provides the needed power upgrades to the building. In addition to the shell and the restaurants, we also provided some interior finish updates to the existing barber shop, A Cut Above, that remains at the building.
Breslin Builders is getting closer to completing the Sears Retail project and the associated restaurants, including Glutton and Vegenation. We received meter tags from the City of Las Vegas and meters have been set by NV Energy. The long anticipate electrical work to connect the needed upgraded power is due anytime from NV Energy, based on their install schedule, which will allow us to finalize the shell and restaurant projects for final approvals and occupancy.
Zydeco Po-Boys Restaurant is taking shape also with the build-out in the rough framing, rough electrical, mechanical, and plumbing stages.

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.
Breslin Builders is progressing with the updates to the Sears Retail Center, including the work on the exterior facade and site changes and upgrades, as well as the interior restaurant build-outs for Glutton and Vegenation. The last part of the facade work at the west end expansion is being completed in preparation for the interior work of Zydeco Po-Boys Restaurant to take place, which the building permits have finally been approved by the City of Las Vegas. Once we have the upgraded power feeds installed by NV Energy, we can complete the balance of the open items and prepare for final completions.

The Downtown Container Park has been featured in another article, this one in Landscape Architect and Specifier News, September 2014 edition. Click on the PDF link for the article from Cre8Play’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.
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.
While doing research for another project I stumbled upon this neat article about the center play area for the Downtown Container Park. It’s always fun to see how others view and review this project. Enjoy the article by clicking here.
Breslin Builders has recently been awarded the best new 2014 Office/Retail/Mixed-Use project for the ENR Southwest Best Projects for the Downtown Container Park project. The project will be featured in the November 2014 issue of ENR Southwest. Breslin Builders is excited to be honored for the work we did on this project, which is a true design-build project from start to finish, providing both design and construction services.
More info can be found on this ENR Blog Post.
Check out this article from Eater about our newest project at 7th and Carson (just west of the Downtown Container Park) we are currently working through permits on:
We are also just starting the work on the referenced third restaurant, to also be a design-build project. More info to follow as it can be released.
ABC TV’s show The Chew visited the Downtown Container Park and recently spotlighted the project on their show. Check out the video with this link – http://abc.go.com/shows/the-chew/video/most-recent/_m_VDKA0_gz8wgm9t. Breslin Builders is grateful to have been both the designer and the contractor for this unique project.
Work is starting to progress on the new retail and restaurant spaces at 7th and Carson, known as the Sears Retail. Due to the age of the structures and typical of many of the projects we are involved with downtown (built originally in 1955 with an addition in the 1970’s), the building required asbestos abatement procedures before any further work could take place. The abatement work has been completed and investigative work for the new tenant restaurant spaces has begun.
Breslin Builders is providing design-build services for the project which include a new facade and two new restaurant spaces. The existing barber shop is remain in place and we will be building around them. Plans have been submitted to the City of Las Vegas for the facade and shell remodel, with restaurant plans nearing completion for permits. Look for the new facades and new restaurant spaces to be completed and opened Fall 2014.
Check out this link to IPME’s website for the Downtown Container Park. IPME was one of the many partners Breslin Builder’s worked with to bring this unique project to life. They were the masters behind the containers and the needed modifications.
IPME also created this cool video showing the Downtown Container Park completed:
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!
The Downtown Container Park is featured in the February 2014 issue of the Parks & Rec Business magazine. Click here to see the February issue including the full article:

Located at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas is a new coffee shop, 150 seat theater, and bar(s) venue, located in what use to be a 7-Eleven convenience store. Breslin Builders, in working with CSPA Studios, provided construction services for the project.
Extensive remodel and construction services were required both within the existing interior of the space, as well as the exterior and roof area, to convert the original single story space into a new three level space, including a sloped theater floor, new restrooms, new bars, a new roof top deck and bar area, and other support facilities to make this the newest place in downtown Las Vegas to hang out, meet, have a drink, and get “inspired” while watching a mini-TED style talk or concert in the theater.
