More than 120 acres in El Paso could see the development of a mixed-use, mostly residential community with plenty of designated park and open space.
The site in the city’s Upper Valley just to the east of Westside Drive and south of Artcraft Road is long-time farmland that would be subdivided into 437 residential lots.
Those lots would range in size between 4,400 to 6,000 square feet. Open space at the site would comprise nearly 14 acres.
What is being called the Village at Westside Crossings, would also include commercial space, with a three-phase building plan.
The spirit behind the project is El Paso developer Jose Gonzalez, owner of West Retail Real Estate, who purchased the land last summer from the Winston Group realty company.
An effort is currently underway to have a portion of the land rezoned from its current ranch-farm and planned residential designation to general mixed-use.
The project has so far received the approval of the El Paso Plan Commission, while the El Paso City Council will be soon tasked with making a final decision on the rezoning request.
