City to vote on amendments to building WestStar Tower

One of those amendments asks to increase the project’s total investment by about $15 million and an online document says that’ll make the tower even taller.

City council is expected to vote on construction amendments for the $70 million WestStar Tower to be built downtown.

One of those amendments asks to increase the project’s total investment by about $15 million and an online document says that’ll make the tower even taller.

The tower would be the corporate headquarters for WestStar and Hunt companies and be mostly made of glass, taking up space along an entire city block at 601 N. Mesa.

Online documents say the extra $15 million would give the building a total of 18 floors, in comparison to the original plan for 14 floors. That includes 10 floors for office space, six for parking, including space open to the public, and one for ground floor retail space.

Another amendment asks to increase the incentive term from 15 to 20 years.

Last fall, KFOX14 reported that the building was expected to open in late 2019 or early 2020.

If approved, this would be the first high-rise office building to be built in downtown El Paso in almost 40 years.
