Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s Incredible Apartment In Las Vegas

Tony Hsieh's apartment

[credit provider=”Aimee Groth, Business Insider”]

This is part of our series on The Sexiest CEOs Alive.
Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh is in the midst of moving his company from suburban Henderson, Nevada, to downtown Las Vegas, with new offices in the former City Hall building, opening in Fall 2013.

While Zappos is funding the company’s $40 million relocation, it’s all part of Hsieh’s bigger vision for downtown Las Vegas. He’s investing $350 million of his own money to revitalize the city.

Hsieh, 38, is already living downtown at The Ogden, a luxury apartment complex just a few blocks from City Hall, where he rents 40 rooms to host guests from around the world. It’s also home to several Zappos and Downtown Project employees. 

We took a tour while in Las Vegas last month
