Joe Downtown: Demolition to begin on former 7-Eleven

Demolition of some of the interior of the massive building that occupies almost a half-acre on Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard will begin Wednesday.

The former 7-Eleven was sold for $4.2 million in February to Fremont LV Blvd LLC, whose officers include Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, and Downtown Las Vegas Management LLC, whose officers include Andrew Donner.

Early renderings show the new space being reconfigured into an area that includes seating for 100 or more in front of a small stage. It is thought the stage will likely be used for various speakers brought to town by Downtown Project. The Downtown Project has been bringing in speakers almost weekly to downtown.

Joe Schoenmann doesn’t just cover downtown, he lives and works there. Schoenmann is Greenspun Media Group’s embedded downtown journalist, working from an office in the Emergency Arts complex.
