Retail Buzz: Restaurants Expand Further East in El Paso

A 16 acre shopping center in far east El Paso is creating a restaurant row of sorts at the northeast corner of Joe Battle Boulevard and Edgemere Boulevard. Three restaurants will join McDonald’s and Taco Tote locations already at the site.

Applebee’s, Village Inn, and Starbucks Coffee will all have a presence at the shopping center, according to a marketing brochure at the website of RJL Real Estate Consultants ( The brochure highlights other available spaces at the center, including a restaurant space and a bank building.

The newest restaurants will line Joe Battle Boulevard in the typical strip center fashion that El Pasoans are accustomed to experiencing. The 16.9 acre center is across Edgemere Boulevard from the Sierra Providence East Medical Center complex which is also undergoing expansion.

As usual, potential tenants in developing shopping centers are subject to change, and this may not be the finalized list of restaurants to be located at the site.
