Las Vegas City Hall was the center of municipal government for the City of Las Vegas, Nevada. It is located downtown, with its main entrance on Stewart Avenue. It is cited as an example of 1960s modern architecture.[1] The original eleven-story central tower was completed in 1973. An addition was completed in 2003 which included a three story surround to the central tower. The addition includes additional office space, a parking deck, and a sky bridge to connect the parking deck to the structure.[1] The addition won the American Institute of Architects Nevada Citation award in 2003.[1]

In November of 2010, online retailer Zappos.com announced it would buy and use the building as its new company headquarters.[2]

In 2010, construction for a new city hall building began at a different site and the city government vacated the old building in early 2012. The building, being purchased by The Resort Gaming Group, will be occupied in 2013 by Zappos after an extensive renovation.[3]
