Notes
Survey number HABS NV-35-G
Building/structure dates: 1951 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1951 subsequent work
Significance: Building 700, as part of the Date Street Complex, was part of the Bureau of Mines Electrometallurgical Research Facility located in Boulder City. As such, it is within the designated Boulder City Historic District. However, because of its 1951 construction date, and addition made between 1951 and 1956, it is considered a non-contributing element to the District. In a report of a survey of the Date Street Complex, Christine Pfaff indicated that in addition to being constructed after the period of significance for the District, the building itself, exhibited "no exceptional architectural or historical significance." The significance of the Boulder City Historic District is tied to the Boulder Canyon Project (Hoover Dam) and to the history of American City Planning. This was the first community constructed following the federal New Towns model, as well as the "first fully-developed experience in new town planning as promoted by the Community Planning Movement, a movement which is recognized as the force which most influenced contemporary community planning practices."
