The new Zappos.com Headquarters, soon to be located in downtown Las Vegas, Nevada, will bring $126.3-million in wages to the downtown core and add nearly $400,000 to tax rolls annually. In this recent article published in ENR Southwest, Tony Illia describes the downtown renovation project as a reinvention for the neighborhood.

In addition to meeting rooms and office-free floors in the 11-story, 276,500-square-foot complex, Zappos.com employees will be able to enjoy a stand-alone bistro with a full kitchen, gym, and roof terrace on the western edge of the building.

The project is targeting LEED Silver certification by incorporating many sustainable practices including debris diversion from demolition, installation of low-flow plumbing fixtures, sourcing of regional materials, installation of 100 bike racks and 10 showers to encourage alternative transportation, and four electric car-charging stations.
