Retail Update: Changes for North Hills Crossing

Tenants Added, Removed from Latest Conceptual Site Plan

UPDATE: For the latest list of proposed stores, read our latest story on North Hills Crossing by clicking here: Work Begins on North Hills Crossing

Original Story:
The newest site plan for a future shopping center slated for Northeast El Paso shows a few changes from the version revealed last year. The layout for North Hills Crossing remains generally unchanged and will take up a 28-acre spot at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Gateway South, along the US-54 freeway.
The newest site plan for the future North Hills Crossing shopping center in Northeast El Paso is slightly different than the RJL Real Estate version. (City of El Paso)

A Chick-fil-a Restaurant has been replaced by a McDonald’s location on the southern corner of the site, while two spots that were previously labeled as future Panda Express and Whataburger locations are now simply labeled as “Restaurant” and “Fast Food.”

Panda Express now shows up along the southeastern side of the center and may share a wall with a Verizon location. Taco Cabana is still pictured next door to this structure, though Five Guys and Dunkin’ Donuts have been removed.

A Walmart Market will still take the largest anchor spot in the northwestern corner, with a 41,000 square foot store planned along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Next to it will be a Petco pet store, which is a new addition. Previous versions of the site plan have indicated a generic “Pet Store” label as well as PetSmart.

Continuing to the east along the main shopping center building, stores include Dollar Tree, Ross, Marshall’s, and Rack Room Shoes, which have all been previously mentioned. New to the tentative lineup are Rue 21 and Big Lots.


Other retailers no longer listed on the site plan include Anna’s Linens, Office Depot, and a Michael’s crafts store. A previous version of the site plan also showed spots for JCPenney and Peter Piper Pizza, which are no longer shown.

The latest version of the site plan is included in the newest marketing flyer of the RJL Real Estate consultants website (www.rjlrealestate.com) and also shows up in an El Paso City Council agenda item which seeks to release certain special conditions from the property to allow the project to move forward, though there are slight differences.

As with previous versions of the site plan, the stores listed may not be set in stone and will most likely change as the project moves closer to becoming a reality.

The project is located just south of the 342-unit Bungalows at North Hills apartment complex. No timeline has been revealed for this project.

  2. Walmart "MARKET" not a "Walmart". Plus didn't Walmart say they we closing the "Markets" due to low sales? Too bad Five Guys pulled out. McDonalds? Really there are 3 other ones with in 2 miles of this proposed one.

  3. Would El Paso consider allowing competition into our grocery selection. See this article: http://www.businessinsider.com/this-grocery-store-has-the-lowest-prices-2014-3 . Here is the company website: https://www.aldi.us/ How about for the proposed North Hills Crossing.

  4. I agree we need a Super Target in the NE... I hate Wal-Mart. Five Guys is great too bad they pulled out. We really don't need another McDonald's. No one wants to come to the NE. Really sad that we have to drive across town to shop and dine, because there are no good places.

  5. The Northeast sucks for exactly this reason. They always put the same crap everywhere over here. Credit unions, clinics. Same old thing all the time. There's already four McDonalds in the Northeast, and two of them are right across from each other. Walmart?? Its gonna be like 5 minutes away from the Walmart on Transmountain. Pretty soon all the N.E. is gonna be is Walmarts Clinics and McDonalds. What happened to the Chick-fil-a, and why noy a Target We need variety!!

  6. Come on, why is the NE treated like the poor side of town. We would like to stop traveling to west or east side to have a decent meal like Olive Garden or Red Lobster. Why don't we even have and Office Depot? After all, aren't we all working for a living? Can't even buy a computer or printer ink without battling Walmart. Let's make the NE a classy place not the "Hood" like everyone thinks we are

  7. That's disappointing. All the removed stores are exactly what we want in the north east.

    Whomever is making the decisions of places there isn't doing a very good job. We don't need another walmart establishment. We don't need another mc donalds. Nor do we need another dollar tree.

    Stop being idiots and give us some variety on our side of town. You're treating us like we don't shop at those places, when we actually do.

    Yes I understand those places probably pulled out. But don't jump so fast on things we already have (and are sick and tired of).

    Morons. Get off the city council if you can't think with your brains.

  8. I agree with all the comments above..we NEED A HUGE CHANGE in the Northeast! Stop wasting our tax money by building the same crappy stuff we already have. Why did u take away all the cool stuff that was plan for us in the beginning. We need to attract ppl to the Northeast instead of running away to the west and east side. U guys should take the northeast resident opinion in consideration. I think we should have a right to vote.

  10. Is there any surprise as to why businesses fail in NE? Look what they bring to it... Sad.

  11. We REALLY don't need ANOTHER Walmart. Why not use that space for something nice like a Barnes and Noble?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why are you putting another Walmart & McDonald's? This city's officials really hate the Northeast.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Does anyone with authority to negotiate what stores are offered in the North Hills Crossing Center even care to read what people who live in the Northeast have to say?

  14. Where do you apply to these stores?
