Wednesday afternoon, officials with Hunt Companies and WestStar announced that W. Silver Recycling, one of North America’s largest industrial recyclers, will locate at WestStar Tower.
Officials say that W. Silver has purchased the 15th floor of the new 20-story tower overlooking Downtown El Paso.
“W. Silver is looking forward to relocating our headquarters to WestStar Tower in downtown El Paso,” said Lane Gaddy, Chief Executive Officer of W. Silver Recycling. “This move to what will be a signature commercial landmark cements our commitment to and investment in the revival of downtown.”
Silver is a 99-year old, 3rdgeneration privately-owned business and employs nearly 500 people at all of its facilities, including more than 100 people at its El Paso headquarters, and a total of 11 locations along the US and Mexico border.
“Despite the pandemic, we are pleased to be able to continue to make progress in both construction and leasing efforts,” said Josh Hunt, Executive Vice President of Hunt. “W. Silver is a welcome addition to this state-of-the-art project.”
Other tenants committed to the project include HUB International, Corralito Restaurant, WestStar Bank, and Hunt Companies.
WestStar Tower broke ground in the summer of 2018, and recently commemorated a topping off of the building. When complete in 2021, the skyscraper – a LEED certified “Green Building” – will be the tallest building in El Paso at over 313 feet high.
The overall project will include approximately 264,000 rentable square feet of office space, and 12,000 square feet of ground-level office and retail space. The building will offer approximately 850 parking spaces in an integrated garage.
Project partners include Duda|Paine (building architect), Gensler (interior design), OJB (landscape architect) and Moss (general contractor).
Pre-leasing and sales of condominium office space is in full swing, with Will and Adin Brown with Sonny Brown Associates leading the leasing and sales effort for office and retail users.
