El Paso-based developer River Oaks Properties has announced plans to build the largest pedestrian-friendly outdoor retail center in West El Paso.
West Towne Marketplace will be an open-air retail and entertainment destination located on the northeast corner of Interstate 10 and Paseo del Norte. The center will feature gently curving tree-lined streets and native plants. It will be built to include gathering spaces designed to encourage relaxation.
West Towne Marketplace will include more than 500,000 sq. feet of retail, restaurants and entertainment. It will be built on 63 acres in one of the El Paso region’s fastest growing commercial, retail and residential areas.
It will feature a large grocery anchor, big box, sporting goods and clothing retailers, along with a movie theater, specialty retail stores and signature restaurants.
West Towne Marketplace is being designed by Butler Design Group, Inc., a national recognized design firm based in Phoenix.
Founded in 1968 and locally owned, River Oaks Properties is the oldest and largest shopping center developer in El Paso. River Oaks currently has six other retail centers under construction.
The anticipated completion date for the center is October 2017.
