The members-only event at El Vado was well attended and full of interesting historical information.
Lead Architect Rupal Engineer, of Design Plus+, presented a detailed overview of El Vado’s redevelopment from the project’s vision to completion. El Vado's General Manager, Brooke Nelson, then provided a spectacular tour which included the pool area and one of the 22 beautifully renovated hotel suites. The furniture and artwork were all sourced by local artisans. The tour ended at the Ponderosa Tap Room, one of the many local vendors on site. There we were met with a bonus guest, the visionary and developer himself, Chad Rennaker, who refers to El Vado as his “passion project.” The energy in the room was palpable as members of CREW New Mexico were able to share in the excitement and enthusiasm of the team who turned a dream into reality!
