Downtown El Paso’s skyline is about to get an upgrade as the former Chase Tower, located at 201 East Main, becomes One San Jacinto Plaza.
“It’s exciting to see Downtown become reinvigorated, and we’re proud to be a part of all of the wonderful changes that are occurring here in the heart of our community,” said Jamie Gallagher, Senior Vice President of Borderplex Realty Trust which has owned of the 20-story, Class A office tower since 2007. “With the building’s new name and new look, One San Jacinto Plaza will continue to be among the most prestigious addresses in Downtown.”
One San Jacinto Plaza opened as the El Paso National Bank Building in 1962. The building is 250-feet tall and among its tenants are restaurants, healthcare groups, law offices, accounting firms, family offices, insurance companies, and financial institutions.
As part of the name change, One San Jacinto Plaza will shine as one of the brightest parts of El Paso’s changing downtown skyline. State-of-the-art LED lighting will wash the building’s distinctive façade in light.
Community organizations will be able to sponsor special commemorative lightings of the building utilizing the new lighting’s color changing technology.
YWCA El Paso del Norte Region, which maintains its corporate offices at One San Jacinto Plaza, will be the first community organization to take advantage of the larger than life opportunity to spread the word about important events and commemorations.
One San Jacinto Plaza will be lit up in several different colors in October including orange in celebration of the YWCA’s logo and purple in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and red to spread awareness of the YWCA’s popular “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event.
One San Jacinto Plaza is among the first lighting projects in Downtown to participate in the Downtown Management District’s Iconic Signage & Lighting Grant Program.
“In addition to introducing its new name and new look, we’re excited that One San Jacinto Plaza is the first lighting project to take advantage of a unique grant program available to property owners looking to contribute to Downtown’s renaissance,” said Joe Gudenrath, Executive Manager of the Downtown Management District.
