Wednesday morning, officials with Hunt and West Star announced that Windstar LPG Inc. will locate at WestStar Tower.
Windstar LPG, a trans-national importer of propane and refined fuels, has purchased the 16th floor of the new 20-story, office building in downtown El Paso.
“We have strong ties to the sister cities of El Paso and Juarez. This is our home and the home of our companies, and now it makes us very proud to call West Star Tower at Hunt Plaza the home for Windstar. Our commitment to this region has always been strong, and we are excited to be part of El Paso’s continuous growth and be part of its future,” said Marco Zaragoza, CEO of Windstar.
Windstar presently has office locations across the border cities between the U.S. and Mexico and employs 2,300 people between the two countries.
“We’re pleased to continue to have great companies like Windstar join us at West Star Tower,” said Josh Hunt, Executive Vice President at Hunt. “As can be seen from the construction progress, we are on course to deliver this state-of-the-art Class-AA commercial building in early 2021.”
Other companies committed to the project include Corralito Restaurant, HUB International, W. Silver Recycling, West Star Bank, and Hunt Companies.
West Star Tower broke ground in the summer of 2018 and, when complete in 2021, will be the tallest building in El Paso at over 313 feet high.
The overall project – a LEED certified “Green Building” – will include approximately 264,000 rentable square feet space and 12,000 square feet of ground-level office and retail space. The building will also offer approximately 850 parking spaces.
Project partners include Docarpamine (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.
