Planned Lofts Could Overlook Downtown Ballpark

By Armando Landin

The architect behind a planned lofts project adjacent to Southwest University Park in Downtown El Paso is teasing what the project may ultimately look like once built.

Three planned "upper end" apartments could have views of El Paso Chihuahuas games. (

'Ballpark Lofts' is the name of the project which will include three 2,600 square foot apartments.

Each apartment will be three stories tall, according to the website, and include a street-level garage. According to renderings of the buildings, each level will include balconies and/or terraces.

Based on the height of the structure, the uppermost terraces could possibly look onto Southwest University Park, the home of the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas.

The description of the project on the website indicates this is the case, stating, "Each three-story unit has 2,600 Sq. Ft. with terraces overlooking the baseball field."

Though the website does not disclose the exact location of the project, not many empty properties would be close enough to offer a view inside the ballpark. The most likely candidate could be a vacant lot along the narrow passageway that is officially Missouri Avenue behind left field.

El Paso Development News reached out to the architect, EXIGO Architects, regarding the project but have not received a response.
