New Eastside Cannery set for Boulder Hwy site

May 1, 2007 3:47 AM

On Monday, Cannery Casino Resorts broke ground on its new Eastside Ctheme established by the original Cannery in North Las Vegas, and the company’s founders, Bill Wortman and Bill Paulos.

The new addition to the Cannery Casino Resorts family is planned to have 65,000 square-feet of casino space and will house 2,000 slot machines, 26 table games, 400-seat bingo hall, live keno lounge, first-class poker room and top-of-the-line race and sports book.

Guest amenities will also include 307 hotel rooms, seven restaurants, three bars, an upscale live entertainment lounge, resort spa, Jacuzzi, a half-acre pool area complete with cabanas, and 20,000 square feet of ballroom and meeting space.

The project is planned to be completed by late summer, 2008.

The design of the property follows a "Vertical Industrial" theme established by architects Klai Juba Architects and Yates-Silverman.

The most prominent feature of the property will be a bronze hotel tower that will have heavy steel structural and decorative elements, topped off by a saw tooth roofline reminiscent of the buildings of the industrial era.

There will also be visual accents such as brick and steel elements, along with cross-braced steel facades and heavy steel open trusses.

The interior of Eastside Cannery will nostalgically reflect the industrial era with large open truss ceilings, exposed mechanical detailing, colorful murals and accurate detailing.

Throughout the hotel there will be amenities similar to those found at the Cannery. The familiar Pinups Bar will be reproduced, but instead of the images of 1950s glamour girls, the Eastside version will feature sassy 1960s pop art beauties with a new space age art look.

The 1960s is further celebrated with ceiling murals that glimpse an era on the verge of change — from man entering the space age to families riding futuristic rockets.

Hotel guests will be treated to rooms and suites that feature floor-to-ceiling glass windows, along with furnishings consistent with the industrial era theme. Of course, the 21st century is well-represented with the inclusion of wide-screen plasma TVs in every room.annery Casino & Hotel project on the site of Nevada Palace on Boulder Highway in Henderson.
