Eli Mizrachi the owner of the Huntridge Theatre has been very busy. He really did take us to heart that we didn’t want to allow him to tear it down. The “Save The Huntridge” steering committee, Brian Paco Alvarez, Lynn Zook, Pam Hartley and myself have never let up in our encouragement.
Eli’s now ready to go public with the plans and drawings that have already been given a thumbs up by the State of Nevada Historic Preservation Commission, as well as the city planning department and the committee. Before taking the plans to the City Planning Commission and City Council, Eli would like to show them to the preservation and neighborhood communities.
This WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13 from 6:30 to 8 pm at Rainbow’s End (1100 E. Sahara) will be the unveiling to the public and the press.
I’ve seen the drawings and the plans, and am impressed and excited. A good show of support will be very welcome. All are invited.
In the City Life Blog, Paco speaks for all of us on the committee:
Historic preservation activists who’ve seen the renderings are pleased. “He sat down and showed me the plans, and I fell in love with them,” says Brian “Paco” Alvarez, a preservation proponent. “It’s fresh, it’s new and it’s an excellent adaptive reuse of the building. He’s maintaining the architectural integrity of the building and he’s expanding it, tying the [former] Sanctuary building and the furniture store together.”
