Photos+Story: Montecillo Announces New Four-Acre Resort Clubhouse, Event Center

Montecillo, El Paso’s first smart growth community, has announced the construction of Resort at Montecillo, a four-acre resort area to include a resident clubhouse, resort style water attractions, event center and more.

The Resort at Montecillo will provide residents and their guests with a unique and exclusive resort experience. The project includes a Resident Clubhouse with top of the line amenities such as a business center, state of the art fitness facilities, separate aerobic and yoga rooms, a teaching kitchen which will offer free cooking lessons, a bar area, concierge desk, and private lounge areas.

Residents of Montecillo will be able to enjoy resort style water attractions which will include a lazy river pool, a beach entry resort pool, a children’s splash pad, private cabanas, an outdoor movie screen, outdoor bars with poolside food and drink service and 40ft vertical water slides.

The project includes a 400-guest Events Facility that will serve as a special event venue with the capacity to host an array of conventions such as music and public events and will offer full catering. The Events Facility will have capability to scale down to accommodate smaller events. Construction is set to begin in six months.

“With this new resort, Montecillo is taking the concept of a smart growth community to a whole new level, said David Bogas, Director of Development for EPT Land Communities.

For KC Griffin, President of Integrity Asset Management, the Resort at Montecillo reflects Montecillo’s commitment to providing the best experiences and amenities to our residents. “We believe in delivering the best amenities to our residents and this is a testament to our commitment.”

Located in El Paso’s west side at 5001 N. Mesa Street, Montecillo is designed to offer a mixture of residential living environments blended with entertainment, commercial and retail business opportunities to include TI:ME, a 12,000sq ft. “third place” venue that consists of nine specialty shops and restaurants, all of which are locally owned and operated and Tre, a three story retail space.

Quality of life is at the forefront of this development concept. Our first step toward the 300-acre Montecillo vision, The Venue at Montecillo apartments, began in May 2011 with blended environments featuring first floor retail and upper floor apartment homes.

Since then, Montecillo has debuted additional urban living spaces with The View in 2014, followed by Santi Dwellings, in 2015

Alamo Presents: ‘Anything for Selenas’ Celebration Weekend March 31-April 2

Time to bedazzle your bustier as the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Montecillo celebrates the life and legacy of Tejano music star Selena Quintanilla during a weekend-long festival March 31 through April 2.

With screenings of SELENA, a themed menu, Selena trivia and Karaoke, a Selena look-a-like contest, lobby decorations, a Selena photo booth and an outdoor concert by Austin’s first all-star Selena tribute band, Bidi Bidi Banda, the event will make any hard-core Selena fan very happy.

The celebration kicks off Friday, March 31 with screenings of SELENA, the 1997 film written and directed by Gregory Nava and starring Jennifer Lopez about the life of the late Tejano music queen. Screenings of SELENA are available all weekend long and tickets can be purchased HERE.

There will be a Selena photo booth in the lobby and a special Selena-inspired food and drink menu available. Every SELENA movie ticket includes access to the Bidi Bidi Banda concert on Sunday, 4/2 at the Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo. Those that don’t have SELENA movie tickets and wish to attend the concert, can do so by purchasing a concert ticket HERE.

The celebration continues on Saturday, April 1, when the Selena Celebration takes over the Glass Half Full Taproom inside the Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo. Fans and trivia geeks alike can enjoy a special edition of Selena Trivia at 6pm followed by Selena Karaoke at 8pm, and a special Selena performance and look-a-like contest led by entertainer and Selena impersonator Diamond at 10pm.

All of the events at the Glass Half Full on Saturday, April 1 are free to the public.

The festival wraps up on Sunday, April 2 with an outdoor performance by Texas’ premiere Selena tribute band Bidi Bidi Banda (based out of Austin, TX). The concert begins at 6pm and will take place outside of the Alamo Drafthouse Montecillo.
