Downtown Garage Transforming Into Bank, Office Building

A long-time parking structure is making a new transformation into a bank and office building at 401 E. Main near the financial sector of downtown El Paso. Steel beams, cranes, and construction workers mark the progress being made at what will become a new location for the United Bank of El Paso del Norte.

According to specification details on the architect's website, the first floor will become the bank's downtown location, while the second and third floors will remain parking levels. A fourth and fifth floor will be added and become lease-able office space.

Current Parking Structure
The resulting 92,000 square foot building will be of Spanish Colonial design and contain what looks like a bell tower at the southeast corner. No word on when the project is slated for completion.
