Zappos Looks to Relocate to Downtown Las Vegas
Business

LAS VEGAS - Zappos.com is looking to relocate from Henderson to downtown Las Vegas.

Resort Gaming Group is offering to buy the current Las Vegas City Hall site and convert it into a corporate campus for Zappos. The offer also includes approximately seven acres of surrounding land. If approved, the move would bring at least 1,000 jobs to downtown Las Vegas.

"Our proposed future downtown location will be a great urban environment that will help grow the cultures of both Zappos and Las Vegas," said Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh in a statement.

"The company is committed to this project and more importantly, to reinvigorating downtown," added Resort Gaming Group founder and CEO Andrew Donner. "The support of this caliber of business leader speaks volumes for our city. We believe this project will have more impact on downtown revitalization than any other development to date."

"This will be a game changer for Southern Nevada," said Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman. "This move will bring about a critical mass of creative persons to the inner core of Las Vegas in addition to causing a significant shot in the arm for the economy and for new jobs."

The Las Vegas City Council is scheduled to consider the sale during its December 1 meeting. If approved, construction could start as soon as Spring 2012, once the new City Hall is completed.
