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 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.

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.
In addition to the facade and shell remodels at the existing Sears Retail building at the northwest corner of 7th Street and Carson Avenue (west of the Downtown Container Park), Breslin Builders has recently been awarded contracts from Downtown Project to provide design-build services for two new restaurants within the remodels shell space.
Both restaurants will be new tenant improvements within the existing shell space including new kitchen areas, restrooms, support space, as well as indoor and outdoor dining space. One restaurant will focus on standard American cuisine while the other is to be a Vegan restaurant (including an anticipated certification from the Green Restaurant Association, which Breslin Builders is working with the owner and his representative to achieve).
These two new additions, as well a future vacant restaurant space, are being built within the to be remodels shell space already in place, and will join the “A Cut Above The Rest” barber shop already within the building. The new facade and shell remodel will bring much needed updates to the aging building, new utility services for the restaurant spaces, as well as new facades for each space giving each location their own individual appearance. The original building was completed in 1955 with an addition in the mid-1970’s. While many of the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems are outdated and antiquated, the shell and “bones” of the building are good and will be reused.
We anticipate construction to start mid-May once permits have been issues from the City of Las Vegas with an anticipated opening of the updated center (except for the barber shop which will remain open during construction) in the Fall 2014. Breslin Builders is excited to add yet another mark on downtown Las Vegas, including one across the street from the recently completed Downtown Container Park, also a design-build project completed by Breslin Builders.
