Completion of “the pride and joy of the Downtown Project” is just around the corner! The John E. Carson Hotel renovation in downtown Las Vegas is nearing completion and Cooper Roofing & Solar is busy helping to wrap it up.
The renovation of what was once a 65-room hotel, circa 1955, is the pride and joy of the Downtown Project, which bought the 19,000-square-foot building in 2012. Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh is the force behind Downtown Project, a $350 million initiative to cultivate startups and new businesses in downtown.
On Friday, construction workers were busy renovating the building, where Downtown Project is renting 11 micro-offices for $500 a month and commercial space for $2 a square foot.
Construction work is continuing and Cooper Roofing & Solar is a big part of it. We reroofed the building, installing a Duro-Last single-ply membrane on the flat roof areas. In addition to the roofing we are also installing the waterproofing on the deck areas of the new building, which are on several different areas of the second floor.
Despite the ongoing work a number of businesses already occupy the John E. Carson building, as revealed in the newspaper article. Several others await the completion of construction. We’ll have much more on this project as it nears completion.
