FukuBurger’s Colin Fukunaga and Tao Group’s Marc Marrone announced last November that they planned a new rooftop restaurant at 201 Las Vegas Blvd. S. Together, the two plan a 6,400-square-foot rooftop restaurant at the former post office, purchased along with the adjoining parking garage by Dapper Cos. and local real estate developer J Dapper for $5.6 million in September 2018.
Now Dapper shares that The Broken Yolk Café signed a lease for the ground floor at what will now be dubbed the S&L building. Earlier this year, the breakfast specialist opened its first Las Vegas location at Town Square.
Architects Walter Zick & Howard Sharp designed 201 Las Vegas Blvd. S., originally known as the Nevada Savings and Loan Association Building, in 1975. The duo at the time designed other notable Las Vegas buildings, including the Moulin Rouge Hotel, demolished in 2010; The Mint, which is now part of Binion’s; the First National Bank of Nevada Building on East Carson; and Clark High School.
Local architectural firm Carpenter Sellers Del Gatto Architects takes care of the exterior and interior of the building, including the 30,000 square feet of office space that will be redesigned by Henriksen/Butler.
Marrone and Fukunaga teamed up with Cabrio Structures to design the retractable roofs and patio enclosures for the building.
