See Before and After Street Views of Major El Paso Projects

By Armando Landin

Apartment rental site RENTCafé has compiled a series of eleven before and after Street View images of major projects in El Paso.

This screenshot shows an image slider at the RENTCafé website that allows El Pasoans to see the Street View from the same spot and how it's changed from 2007 to 2015. Here, the Venue at Montecillo apartment buildings line Mesa Street in the newer image. (RENTCafé)

The sliders on the images at the site allow El Pasoans to view the changing streetscape by dragging the arrow bars left and right. The right side of each image depicts the Street View in 2007 while the left side shows the same spot in 2015.

The website selected major projects such as Southwest University Park, where the former City Hall was located prior to being demolished to make way for the Triple-A ballpark.

Another project highlighted is the Children's Hospital tower in Central El Paso, part of University Medical Center.

Smaller projects are also included, such as an infill apartment building that went up in the historic Sunset Heights neighborhood in recent years, an East Side movie theater, and North Hills Crossing in Northeast El Paso.
