Tony Hsieh in Las Vegas — PHOTOS

Updated November 28, 2020 - 12:35 pm

From being the CEO of Zappos, to the driving force behind the downtown revitalization effort, Tony Hsieh had a profound impact on the city of Las Vegas.

The business mogul died Friday from injuries sustained in a house fire in Connecticut.

Hsieh moved Zappos from a Henderson office park to the former Las Vegas City Hall building downtown in 2013. He also launched the Downtown Project (now DTP Companies), in 2012 and put $350 million into numerous ventures in the Fremont Street area.

The photo gallery above takes a look back at Tony Hsieh’s time in Las Vegas.
