Video+Gallery: HACEP Opens Up Old El Paso Natural Gas HQ for Tour

The Housing Authority of the City of El Paso (HACEP) hosted a walk-through of the historic Blue Flame Building before the reconstruction phase of the building commences in full.

A tour of the ground floor and executive floors took place on Friday afternoon, as representatives from the project’s developer, Franklin Development, and the project’s architect, In*Situ, discussed the development plans for The Blue Flame and highlight the historic elements.

According to HACEP, crews will convert the historic office building into 120 affordable apartment units throughout 12-floors, will include about 45,000 square-feet of office space throughout three-floors in addition to ground-floor commercial and retail space.

The project cost stands at approximately $40 Million.

**Author’s note: In the video, I referenced going with my grandparents to ‘pay a bill’ at the EPNG building – as the recollections of a 5-year-old aren’t exactly detail-oriented (as pointed out by a kind reader over at the Remember In El Paso When Facebook Page), those monthly visits may have been for an entirely different purpose, as bills were not paid at that location. cb**
