On Monday, Zappos announced CEO Tony Hsieh was retiring after more than 20 years at the shoe and clothing company. While in charge of Zappos, Hsieh moved the company’s headquarters to Las Vegas — where he still lives — as part of a larger effort to make Vegas the new Silicon Valley.
In 2014, he transformed an abandoned parking lot in the area into a micro-living oasis. While his overall downtown development project has faltered, the trailer park is thriving. About 30 Airstream trailers and tiny homes make up the village called “Llamapolis,” and Hsieh actually lives there with his two alpacas, Marley and Triton.
While Hsieh has a net worth of about $840 million, he previously told Business Insider that he lives in “Llamapolis” because “[he] wanted to maximize serendipity and randomness in [his] life.”
Below is a look at life within “Llamapolis.”
