The image is a bird’s eye view of the construction site looking west. The 50-acre plus project includes moving a massive amount of dirt to make room for the Town Center, which will be constructed on a heavily sloped property.
No less than eleven structures will be built at the Town Center and will include retail, office, and residential space. An Alamo Drafthouse theater has been the only tenant announced to date.

The new image posted by ZTEX was taken using a small remote-controlled helicopter with a camera on board. Mesa Street can be seen at the western edge of the site, with the Venue at Montecillo apartment buildings across the street.
ZTEX Construction has worked on several large-scale projects in the area, including the Fountains at Farah shopping center, the Outlet Shoppes at El Paso, and the downtown Triple-A baseball stadium.
