According to the project’s architect, Carlos Lievanos of Liev Arch of El Paso (, the courtyard is “strategically located based on building orientation, site exposure and views to integrate light and privacy in response to the desert environment.”

Initial plans included a Phase II that would construct three more condominium buildings, a clubhouse, and a small retail space. However, only the current building under construction will be realized, as of this point.
