Logan Simpson Cultural Resources Team Wins Contract for Victory Hotel

Victory Hotel Las Vegas

Victory Hotel Las Vegas

Logan Simpson historic preservation specialists are assisting the City of Las Vegas to assess the rehabilitation potential of the historic Victory Hotel. Logan Simpson teamed with a historical architect, a structural engineer, and a general contractor to provide a comprehensive Historic Building Rehabilitation Assessment of one of the city’s oldest buildings. Built in 1910, the Victory Hotel (then called the Lincoln Hotel), is a two-story masonry building constructed in the Mission Revival architectural style.  It is the last remaining example of a small hotel built to serve miners, workers, and patrons of the San Pedro, Los Angeles, and Salt Lake Railroad. The current owner is planning redevelopment of the site.  Logan Simpson’s work will assist the city Planning Department and Ward 3 Councilman Bob Coffin who are evaluating alternatives to demolition of the hotel building, including possible relocation or rehabilitation. If relocated, the hotel could join four restored railroad worker cottages, built between 1909 and 1911, at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve for an educational attraction that embraces the history of the railroad in Las Vegas. The Springs Preserve cottage exhibit is scheduled to be completed in spring of 2014.
