Downtown About To Get Greener
Back off. The pink one's all ours.
Downtown Vegas is about to throw its support behind a recent study showing kids just aren't buying cars like they used to. On Friday, downtown's Molasky Corporate Center, the largest privately owned and operated LEED Certified Gold Class–A office building in the southwestern United States, unveils its Bike Share Program.
That study about kids these days and their diminishing need for wheels may not be the actual driver behind the move, but it starts to throw downtown into the re-urbanization movement and lines up with shoeman Hsieh's goal of live, work, and play within walking distance. To which we ask, why walk when you can bike?
The Molasky program's fleet of Electra bikes is intended only for building tenants, but we echo Biking Las Vegas's curiosity in wondering if the idea will spread. Surely, Zappos-branded bikes might also one day be popping in for a slice of pizza or a quick lose a hundred, get a hundred. For now, we're proud to see Downtown Vegas taking off the training wheels.
