"80-Foot-Tall Archway Fabricated And Installed By YESCO, "

"Designed By Selbert Perkins Design"

*LAS VEGAS (Nov. 18, 2020) *Tonight, the city of Las Vegas will illuminate its new, 80-foot-tall Gateway Arches spanning Las Vegas Boulevard between St. Louis and Bob Stupak avenues at the base of The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod. Conceived and designed by Selbert Perkins Design and fabricated and installed by YESCO (the 100-year-old company synonymous with Las Vegas most iconic signs), the archway marks travelers official arrival into the city of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas is known worldwide as the getaway for the best in entertainment, fun, dining and convention business, Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman said. What better way to invite everyone into historic downtown than by passing through this massive new archway into the heart of a revitalized Las Vegas?

The blue illuminated arches form a towering gateway to the citys burgeoning downtown and feature a pink, retro-inspired Las Vegas emblem suspended above the boulevard.

Ward 3 is a dynamic part of the city of Las Vegas and I am so excited to represent the home of this beautiful new gateway, Ward 3 Councilwoman Olivia Diaz said. I am sure these iconic arches will become synonymous with the fun and excitement of our city, as well as being a point of community pride for years to come.

While the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign at the south end of the Strip enjoys world renown, many people do not realize it lies outside city of Las Vegas boundaries in unincorporated Clark County, Nevada. The new, brightly lit, Gateway Arches will welcome visitors to the city of Las Vegas as they travel north on Las Vegas Boulevard.

YESCO has a long history of fabricating, installing and maintaining Las Vegas most internationally recognizable signs, and the Gateway Arches represent the newest monumental addition to that portfolio, said Jeff Young, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of YESCO. This project is history in the making, and were proud to have partnered with the city of Las Vegas and Selbert Perkins Design to bring it to life.

Added Stephen Thayer, vice president and general manager at The STRAT, The Gateway Arches are a striking landmark to designate what has long been the gateway from the Las Vegas Strip to the city of Las Vegas. We are thrilled that this beautiful monument has been erected just steps away from our iconic tower.

Selbert Perkins Design has been designing city gateways, public art and landmarks for over 30 years. We are honored to have worked with the city of Las Vegas to design its newest gateway, which welcomes all to historic downtown, said Robin Perkins, partner of Selbert Perkins Design. Our thanks to YESCO for fabricating and installing this complex work. Its been a fantastic collaboration all around!
