ZAPPOS CEO TONY HSIEH POURING
MILLIONS OF HIS OWN MONEY INTO
DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS

He has helped keep at least one restaurant
open, has donated $1.5 million to encourage
Teach for America members and alumni to
move downtown, and has plans to fund dozens
of new businesses on Fremont street.

In addition, he is presently negotiating the
purchase of the ailing Class AAA 51s baseball
team which has it's home in nearby Cashman Field.

Hsieh believes that this will be important to the
future of downtown because of it's proximity to
downtown.

Zappos relocation to downtown in the old City
Hall will do more than any development in
recent history to enrich downtown casinos and
revitalize the area, experts say.

Now with it's headquarters located in Henderson,
several Zappos employees have already moved
downtown and maybe hundreds or thousands will
follow as the company relocates it's headquarters.

The President of the Downtown Las Vegas Alliance
says, "Hsieh is a corporate leader bringing jobs to
Las Vegas, a growth company adding 50 employees
a month to it's payroll, revitalizing the downtown
area."
