What is the Downtown Project?

The Downtown Project’s mission statement is: To help make downtown Vegas a place of Inspiration, Entrepreneurial Energy, Creativity, Innovation, Upward Mobility, and Discovery, through the 3 C’s of Collisions, Co-learning, and Connectedness in a long-term, sustainable way.

Born from a $350 million investment by Tony Hsieh, CEO of online retailer Zappos (purchased by Amazon in 2009 for $1.2 billion), the project is creating an urban live/work zone and startup ecosystem in historic Downtown Las Vegas.

Today, Downtown has become a dynamic and unique living and working space with over 300 new companies and 900 employees created since the beginning of the project. In 2013, Zappos moved its 4000 employees into the previous City Hall building in the heart of downtown.
