Galleria at Sunset Announces Two New Tenants: The Raider Image, 
Bobby Mao’s Chinese Kitchen + 
Mexican Cantina

The Galleria at Sunset announced two tenants that will soon call the Henderson shopping center home. The Raider Image, the official store for Raiders merchandise, opened in November, and Bobby Mao’s Chinese Kitchen + Mexican Cantina is scheduled to open early 2018.

The Raider Image will occupy a little more than 3,600 square feet of space and will be owned and operated by The Raiders. Sideline, on-field and exclusive products and apparel for fans of all ages will be available for purchase. The store will be located on the lower level by the Plaza entrance.

Bobby Mao’s Chinese Kitchen + Mexican Cantina will bring two cuisines under one roof to offer an expansive selection of Chinese and Mexican fare. In addition to the main dining area, the 7,000-square-foot space includes a sophisticated bar and lounge space with TVs, plush couches and booths. First-to-market in Nevada, restaurateurs Bobby and wife Tina come from Palm Desert, California, where they operate Bobby Mao’s Chinese Kitchen. The restaurant will be located at the main entrance to the mall next to Red Robin.

Henderson Mayor and City Council Accept Pittman Neighborhood 
Revitalization Plan

Henderson’s mayor and city council recently accepted the Pittman Neighborhood Revitalization Plan, approving recommendations for improvements to one of Henderson’s most mature areas: the Pittman neighborhood. The plan is a result of Invest Health Henderson, a public-private initiative created to improve health outcomes in geographic areas facing the biggest barriers to better health.

The city received a $60,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Reinvestment Fund to create the Pittman Neighborhood Revitalization Plan and implement change at the neighborhood level. Henderson was selected to receive the grant from among 170 communities that applied to the National Invest Health, Strategies for Healthier Cities program.

The Pittman Neighborhood Revitalization Plan identifies goals and provides strategies for improvements in five principal action areas: food and health, housing, safety, education and workforce, and transportation. Feedback obtained from community engagement results was used to develop recommendations that include:

  • • Addition of a school garden classroom at Edna Hinman Elementary School in partnership with Green Our Planet and The LandWell Company
  • • Partnership with Touro University Nevada, School of Physician Assistant Studies, to bring the Mobile Healthcare Clinic to Pittman and downtown Henderson once a month
  • • Expanding the operation in Henderson of the Veggie Buck Truck, an existing pop-up mobile farmers market, targeting low-income neighborhoods in food deserts
  • • Working with Hinman Elementary School’s Supper Club program to provide meals to students through Three Square Food Bank after school before they go home

Settled in 1929 to provide housing to Boulder (Hoover) Dam construction workers, Pittman still maintains its original street layout. It is generally bounded by Galleria Drive on the north, Pabco Road on the east and Boulder Highway running diagonally on the west.
