El Paso's $85 million WestStar Tower office building should be finished by summer 2020

Vic Kolenc, El Paso Times Published 8:00 a.m. MT June 21, 2018 | Updated 11:53 a.m. MT June 21, 2018

The construction of the $85 million, 18-story WestStar Tower office building will begin in about two weeks.

That's the projected start time after many of the city's business and government leaders celebrated the project's symbolic groundbreaking on a hot Wednesday morning under a white tent on a blacktop parking lot at 601 N. Mesa St. and Missouri Avenue, where the building will be constructed.

That address was scaring me for a second. I thought they were going to have to tear down the Coffee Box. Thankfully, it's two blocks away on Mesa St.

Montecillo town center: New details, images revealed

Quote:
The investors behind the expansive urban community on the Westside called Montecillo are a step closer to realizing their longtime vision for the project’s town center.
The project cleared a hurdle Thursday when the City Plan Commission unanimously approved the developer’s subdivision plans for the town center – 20 acres of entertainment, retail, offices and housing.

It’ll offer “a new blend of commercial and residential spaces with a smart, modern twist,” the Montecillo website says.

EPT Land Communities, the developer behind Montecillo, declined to comment and no timelines are posted online.

Snøhetta wins competition to design new El Paso Children's Museum

Quote:
Snøhetta is on a roll right now: besides being recently selected to lead the ambitious expansion of Omaha's Joslyn Art Museum, winning the competition for the renovation of the Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers in France yesterday, the firm was also just chosen as lead designer for the new $60 million El Paso Children’s Museum project.

An international architectural design competition launched by the museum and El Paso Community Foundation had invited three firms—TEN Arquitectos, KoningEizenberg, and Snøhetta—to submit concepts that could then be presented to the community as part of a public selection process.

The El Paso Children’s Museum hopes to reach children and families from El Paso, Ciudad Juarez, the American southwest, and the Mexican states of Chihuahua and Sonora.

Final designs for the museum are now in development, and completion is scheduled for late 2021.

Cielo Vista-area mixed-use center to have hotels, apartments, stores, restaurants, offices

Vic Kolenc, El Paso TimesPublished 7:00 a.m. MT Oct. 22, 2019

The Gateway, a 550,000 square-foot lifestyle center, will cost more than $50 million to build and probably take until 2023 to fully complete, said Dixson, owner and president of Prestige Development Group, an El Paso commercial development company.

The center will be located at 6767 Gateway West Blvd., near Airway Boulevard, and near Landry's Seafood Restaurant, in a busy commercial area.

Plans call for four buildings with stores and restaurants fronting the Gateway and Interstate 10; two, three-story office buildings with ground-floor retail, in the middle of the lifestyle center; and an eight- to 10-story building with apartments on several top floors, parking garage in the middle floors, and possibly an "entertainment venue" on the ground floor. Two hotels also are proposed for the site. An underground parking garage is to be located behind the office buildings. The center also will have surface parking.
