Historic Fifth Street School

A piece of Las Vegas history returned to life when the city of Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency reopened the doors to the newly rehabilitated, community-oriented Historic Fifth Street School on Sept. 22, 2008.

Billed as a “cultural oasis” in the midst of downtown Las Vegas’ office and legal corridors, the revitalized building is home to an assortment of local arts and architectural organizations. The primary tenants are the University of Nevada Las Vegas Fine Arts Program, including the Downtown Design Center for the School of Architecture; the Nevada School of the Arts (a music education organization); the American Institute of Architects; and the city of Las Vegas Cultural Affairs Division.

The Historic Fifth Street School won a Best of 2008 Award from Southwest Contractor, a leading construction industry publication. The annual competition recognizes construction and design excellence in separate award ceremonies for Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico. More than 650 entries were received in the tri-state region. The Historic Fifth Street School rehabilitation won in the categories of "Government/Public" and "Renovation/Restoration."
