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.
