Significance: Building 300, as part of the Date Street Complex, was component 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 1952 construction date it is considered a non-contributing element to the District. In a report of a survey of the Date Street Complex, Christine Pfaff of the Bureau of Reclamation indicated that when the building had reached the fifty year mark, then it would need to be re-evaluated for eligibility as a significant part of the complex, as well as to the District. 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."
