'Fountains' Website Adds Progress Photos

Update: The Grand Opening has been moved back by a year. The center is now scheduled to open in November of 2013.

Site preparation has been ongoing at the Fountains at Farah project, and the developer has posted new photos on its website showing the progress made as of February. Construction crews have been busy clearing the site for what should be infrastructure work such as utilities and roads, followed by pad site work and what will become the double-decker parking structure.
The project located at Hawkins and I-10 is slated to open in fall of 2012, according to the website's leasing flyer. West Miller, principal of the project's developer, Centergy Retail, told the Texas Real Estate Business newsletter late last year that "the property already has between 350,000 and 400,000 square feet of space designated for 45 tenants that have committed or signed letters of intent," also stating that "among the committed tenants, more than 30 of these merchants do not have existing sites in El Paso."
Miller stated that some stores could open by the end of 2012. Hopefully, this will lead Centergy to quicken the pace of construction.
