TI:ME at Montecillo Debuts New Website

‘Non-Traditional’ Shopping Center to Open this Year 

An urban, compact shopping center that is part of the Montecillo smart growth development in West El Paso has debuted its new website. The site for TI:ME at Montecillo, which bills itself as a “non-traditional” shopping center, can now be found at

The center will have 12,000 square feet of leasable space, with options ranging in size from 80 to 1,200 square feet. It will be anchored by three new full service restaurants, owned and operated by the same restaurant group that created Crave Kitchen and Bar, 1914 Loung, and the Independent Burger.

In the TI:ME center, the group will operate Stonewood Modern American Grill, Hillside Coffee & Donut Co., and Malolam Cantina. The leasable retail areas will be located on the northern side of the intimate complex, with the restaurants taking up most of the southern half. The complex of buildings will surround a central gathering space.

According to the website, the landscaping “will be like no other space in town, going above and beyond the required amount, making it lush and green throughout.” In addition, the center will be partially built using shipping containers.

Last month, TI:ME announced its tenant lineup and includes a diversity of local shops. The tenants include HommeWork, GlowDry, Modern Hookah, Black Dot, ALDesign, Le Trendy, Trendy:Decor, HommeWork Jewelry, and The Backyard Patio.

The center takes a spot along North Mesa Street among the four buildings that make up the Venue at Montecillo apartment complex, which was the first part of the Montecillo development to be completed. Eventually, Montecillo will have 4,000 apartment units, 400 single family homes, retail, office, and civic spaces built in a largely SmartCode environment.

Across Mesa Street from the Venue, work continues on site preparation for the Montecillo Town Center, which will include retail, apartments, and an Alamo Drafthouse movie theater. That project should continue through the year.

No official opening date has been set for the TI:ME at Montecillo shopping center, though construction continues at a steady pace.
