'Fountains' Construction Start, Opening Dates Revealed

EMJ Construction of Dallas has posted an update to its website indicating that it has been awarded the contract to construct the Fountains at Farah retail project in east El Paso. The news item reveals that the site is currently in "pre-construction" and that actual construction will begin in May of 2012. The Grand Opening of the center is scheduled for November of 2013, one year later than originally planned.
According to the website, "Massive in more than scale, it is a $70 million project with 30 buildings including a total of 615,000 square feet comprising the lifestyle center and an additional 500,000 square foot parking garage," adding that the project is considered "one of the largest new commercial retail projects in the country."
