LAS VEGAS, NV – DC Building Group is proud to announce that The Neon Museum’s Store by MRG has been successfully renovated. The existing office space was demolished to create a new retail space. The Neon Museum and Boneyard is a non-profit renowned for preserving and exhibiting neon light displays and historical signage. During the renovation, DC Building Group took great care in maintaining original portions of this historic landmark. Situated at 770 N. Las Vegas Boulevard, the 1,673-square foot space was designed by David Almany, the architect retained by MRG, owner of the new retail store. The collaboration between MRG and the Neon Museum began in 2012 with plans of their current vision coming to fruition in mid-2016. The space features a mid-century modern design with splashes of color and mobile floor fixtures for the ever-changing merchandise. “I’m certainly proud to have been part of the team to create this one-of-a-kind space for this exclusive Las Vegas experience that is the Neon Museum,” said the Director of Store Design for MRG. The museum store project called for concrete removal and light fixture salvaging while the new construction involved sponsored paver relocation, patio doors, framing, rough carpentry, track lighting, plumbing, heating, electrical, painting, landscaping and more.
