Familiar Landmark Returns as New Northgate Transit Center Nears Completion

An iconic, blue spire again rises in Northeast El Paso, courtesy of a husband and wife art team and the City of El Paso.

The Northgate Transfer Center, project located in Northeast El Paso, is home to the 60-foot spire, was receiving finishing touches on Tuesday.

The spire – named Torre de las Flores – is the creation of Jim Hirschfield and Sonya Ishii, a husband and wife artist team.

Their piece commemorates the iconic tower, which once stood at the Sunrise Shopping Center in Northeast El Paso from the 1960’s through the early 1990’s.

The structure will be adorned with perforated gold metal discs that will move freely in the wind, and glimmer with the light of the sun, resembling the fields of yellow poppies that blanket the Franklin Mountains during the springtime.

At night, the structure will glow through the use of lighting.

This art piece will be the focal point of the plaza for the Northgate Transfer Center, which will feature a park and ride garage, bus drop off and pickup shelters, enclosed waiting and ticketing areas, electronic on-street message boards, ticketing & information offices, bike racks, and the construction of a landscaped pedestrian plaza.

The transfer center is a unique transit oriented project that will anchor a public-private development known as Metro 31. Metro 31 is a mixed-use venture that will integrate the new transfer center and its Dyer Brio rapid transit corridor station with residential, retail and commercial office spaces.

City officials say, “This project is part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance its infrastructure network and quality of life for residents, business and visitors through the creation of recreational, cultural and educational environments.”

The transfer center is scheduled to be operational in the Spring of 2018.
