Las Vegas Airstream Park owned by Zappos CEO

"Tony Hsieh could buy a private island if he wanted to. The Zappos CEO has a reported net worth of $840 million.

But Hsieh chooses to live in a Las Vegas trailer park he owns, according to a recent profile in The New York Times.

The trailer park is "crammed with shiny silver Airstreams that are rented out to visiting computer coders . . . . . .
":

“We’ve talked about possibly one day building the world’s largest Airstream hotel and/or residence to provide a unique hotel/living experience in downtown Vegas,” Hsieh wrote in an email to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. There are 20 Airstream trailers in the trailer park.

This doesn't surprise me. I've known Tony since 1996 (he almost bought one of my companies) and my son worked with him early on at Zappos. He is a fantastic high quality man. Kind of a genius in his elevated level of consciousness about what the truly important things are in life. Bravo Tony!

Cheers,
John

Wired Magazine article

That was a long article about him and his community in the January 2014 issue of Wired Magazine. Lots of interesting things going on down there. The Airstream Village is mentioned later in the article.

Sounds like the park is for his employees. It's a block south of Airstreams to go, just east of the Fremont Street experience.

Sounds like he spent 2 mil on the Airstreams. Somewhat a shame, as it looks like a mobile home park. I consider Airstreams like dolphins, they are fun to watch and see jump at Seaworld, but they sure would be happier in the wild swimming around.

Another article today

Dan B'

I would agree with you on that!



Different sites in downtown Las Vegas both feature Airstream trailers | Las Vegas Review-Journal
