Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market – Sunland Park Dr.

With this addition to the upper valley, Wal-Mart has constructed a 41,980 square foot Walmart Neighborhood Market at 1110 Sunland Park Drive, just east of the State Line Restaurant. The property on which the Walmart was constructed is located in Texas but, uniquely, nearly crosses the New Mexico state line. The store sits at the back of the property with parking located in front of the store.

Cabela’s at West Towne

This 50,00 square foot store will offer customers an immersive outdoor experience with dozens of museum-quality taxidermy mounts and wildlife habitat displays, vintage outdoor photos and memorabilia, and a regionally specific theme. The store will include an archery and firearm tech room, indoor archery range, state-of-the-art digital firearm kiosk, and Bargain Cave. Cabela’s has employed approximately 125 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees to staff the location, most coming from El Paso!

Hotel Paso del Norte

It has been said that this project will forever change not only the face of downtown El Paso but also lead to economic development in the area that will be unparalleled. This 100 year old, 357 room showplace will soon be reopened not only as a destination hotel but a convention hotel unlike anything El Paso has ever seen.

Abundant Living Faith Center – West

This 2,000+ seat church is the newest addition to the ALF church. Nestled in the foothills of the Franklin Mountains in Northwest El Paso, this project compliments the East El Paso location by adding accessibility to worshipers in West El Paso. The new location is surrounded by shopping, lots of new home construction and the recently opened Hospitals of Providence Trans Mountain Campus.

Hospitals of Providence – Horizon Campus

The Hospitals of Providence Horizon City Campus is a joint venture with Emerus Holdings, a nationally recognized, innovative leader in the delivery of emergency, inpatient, and diagnostic medical health care and the nation’s first and largest operator of micro-hospitals. The new Horizon Campus will total about 40,000 square feet and will include an emergency department, inpatient unit, laboratory, and imaging services as well as medical offices for physicians and other health care providers.

Cyber Alert for long/holiday weekends!

Based on history, cyber criminal activity WILL increase over  the upcoming long weekend. Because of the diverted attention to family, friends, travel and celebration, “3-day weekends” and Holidays are potential weaknesses for businesses, REALTORS and consumers . These events leave the fraudsters with more time to leave their attacks undiscovered.  Be sure to be cautious of emails attempting to make last minute changes to wire instructions and also of strange emails containing links or PDFs with clickable links that could be phishing attempts on you or your clients. This is especially important to remember if you have a closing in the near future. Please feel free to forward this to any of your buyer or seller clients. Remember, you can always reach out to our wire department at 915-545-2222 to confirm correct wiring instructions for any particular transaction.  RED FLAGS TO REMEMBER  
  • Cash Transactions
  • Emails received stressing the urgency to finish the wire process
  • Poor Grammar
  • Ordering wire instructions too far in advance of closing
  • Emails attempting to change wire instructions just before closing
Friday, June 30th and Monday, July 3rd are dates to be on high alert.   By simply staying alert and sharing this information you can potentially save yourself and your clients thousands and a lot of heartache.  

Until next time,

Campbell Apartments

Transformation is what comes to mind with the ultra-modern, five-story, 87-unit Campbell Apartments. “We came to a consensus that this area needed to start evolving and changing to meet the times,” said Joe Soto, 28, as he gave a tour of the recently completed, $4.5 million apartment project, which he developed with his father, Ed Soto. It’s on about an acre of land where apartment buildings, owned by the family for more than 40 years, had stood.

The Citadel at West Pointe

This 282 unit apartment complex will break ground in the San Antonio market in June 2017. This transaction was underwritten by Old Republic National Title and will be constructed by Jordan Foster Construction – Residential Division.
