Modern Office Building Pictures, Las Vegas

Postby roadsidepictures » Tue Mar 14, 2006 7:10 pm

Some pictures I shot today of an office building that was built in 1967. This building will be demolished in a couple of years. The other buildings in the complex have already been replaced by new ones. I'm amazed at how original this building is! Most of the lights are out and the fountains are filled with cedar chips.

Mid Century Las Vegas.

So many gems, so many treasures.

Too many developers.

Allen,

Where's the office building located? city or county?
Lynn in Sherman Oaks

It's on Rancho (City)...it's such a shame to watch this place fall into such a state of disrepair.

Doctors office

OMG - you posted a picture of my old doctors office from when I was a little kid. My doctor, Dr. Carter, had offices in that building and I vividly remember those fountains in the lobby. I was sure the buildings were taken down already.

The building is located on Rancho Dr. just north of Sahara, sort of near the Palace Station casino but on the other side of the street.

Daybreaker,

I didn't realize till I read your post but your right! It's that medical builiding on Rancho just north of Sahara.

My family's doctor, Dr. Romeo, had an office in there too. Used to go there all the time.

The things you forget as you get older. Damn old age!

Is this building empty as the pictures suggest?

Or did you manipulate your pictures so that you wouldn't get anything non-architectural, such as people, in your pictures?

What a beaut this building is!

No manipulations, just very empty. The only people there were getting a drug test...one lady looked homeless and acted crazy...she was laying down on a bench. There was one custodian and two laborers sitting on a bench. They watched me and were trying to ask me something, but they spoke Spanish and I don't. I believe most of the offices are vacant.

This place is gorgeous! The skylights are mod, kicky, groovy! Is it in a "bad" part of town? I wonder why they can't keep it occupied!

No, it's not bad at all. There used to be a couple other buildings just like this one, but they were demolished years ago. New ones were built in their place and the same will be done to this one.

There isn't any reason in the world that they should demolish this building. It looks like it's in GREAT shape! :cry:

is there anyone who can volunteer to do some research and find out the architect of this place?

Incredible building. How can they bring themselves to wreck it?

No luck on the architect. They didn't keep records prior to the mid 1980's...the mystery remains...
