Residents Invited to Tour New Downtown Apartments ‘the 501’ on Thursday

The latest piece of El Paso’s downtown renaissance is here. Those looking to become downtown dwellers now have the opportunity to live near the hustle and bustle of downtown El Paso with the opening of the 501.


A project led by Joe Soto and his family, these brand new apartments are a great opportunity to join the downtown living movement.

“Downtown El Paso is chocked full of small businesses, cultural amenities, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. You can walk to them from the 501, you’ll soon be able to hop on the streetcar nearby, and residents have easy access to Interstate 10 and the Border Highway,” Soto said.

“Our family has been part of downtown El Paso for three generations, so having the opportunity to showcase what we love about Downtown while helping to build an exciting future for Downtown is doubly exciting. We want folks to come live at the 501 and be part of the renaissance with us.”

The 501 units have gorgeous downtown views and come with washers and dryers, refrigerated air, granite countertops, upscale appliances, 9ft ceilings, energy efficient lighting and more. Commercial spaces are available for lease on the first floor.

This grand opening event will provide the public with the opportunity to explore the property, enjoy great music, free refreshments door prizes and activities, and get a taste of what living downtown has to offer.

Local charity Siguiendo los Pasos de Jesus, who rebuilds homes and supports education in Juarez colonias, will have a free ice cream bar at the event.

The public is invited to a grand opening celebration at 5:30p.m. on Thursday, August 17, 2017, at 501 S. Campbell Street.

Visitors will be invited to tour the building, enjoy some food truck goods and get the feel for downtown living while they’re there. The first 50 guests will receive a small gift.

  • Already toured these apartments,they are kinda small, not pet friendly and the middle part of the building has an inside Alcatraz kinda look to it. A little pricey for the location being in the Segundo Barrio, should had built them north of Paisano Street,but still I give then a C+. What amazes me is that there were no protest coming from the so-called Historians Paso Del Sur radical movement folks since they always protest anything that gets built or knocked down in or around downtown El Paso. I give them an A+ for good behavior.

    • The only reason no one protested and County Judges weren’t there was the lack of tv cameras.

  • i feel very offended every time someone tries to do something
    great in this town it never fails for a mexican to knock down
    the work of another mexican …………….
    maybe you were upset, alberto because they don’t do
    section 8 housing and you thought you could get in !!
    to quote our mayor ” NO RIF RAF ” …

    • You feel very offended every time that a mexican knocks down another mexican! Well I’m willing to bet that you are a not a Mexican at all but another White Nationalist Gabacho. Oh and yes the section 8 comment don’t offend me either, because I don’t qualify for section 8 and never even bothered to seek any assistance from it. On the KVIA forum threads you go by the name Guard Dawg and here you post as Rick Rainger to hide your identity.
      BTW! I didn’t knock down anyone, went to see the Campbell Street apartments, didn’t like em considering that they do offer nice views, and as you are concerned to me, CHALE! NO RIFAS NADA ESE! so sticks and stones to you.
