Fremont9 apartments in downtown Las Vegas a rarity for area

The apartments can be small and the rents aren’t cheap, but dozens of tenants have moved to the new Fremont9 complex downtown, a member of the development team said Tuesday.

Fremont9’s ownership and Las Vegas city officials, including Mayor Carolyn Goodman, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the five-story, 232-unit apartment complex.

The project, by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project and Arizona-based The Wolff Co., opened more than a year behind schedule.

The valley’s apartment-construction boom has been heavily concentrated in the suburbs amid an array of obstacles downtown. Fremont9, at Fremont and Ninth streets next to Atomic Liquors, is the neighborhood’s first big new rental complex in years.
