City to Extend Westin Hotel/Retail Complex Deadlines

The stalled Westin Hotel and retail complex that is planned near the El Paso International Airport is not dead, according to a City Council agenda item. City Representatives will consider extending deadlines to the incentives package and lease agreement that was approved for the project in 2013 due to an active lawsuit brought by nearby hotels.

Acequia Park, the name given to the complex by the developer, EP Vida, will consist of a 220-room hotel and attached retail complex on nine acres at the corner of Airway Boulevard and Boeing Drive.
