Northeast El Paso’s largest retail development in years is scheduled to open in June. North Hills Crossing, at the corner of Gateway South and Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard, has been under construction since August and will add over 200,000 square feet of retail space. The power center will include retailers including Walmart Market, Ross, Marshall’s, and Big Lots. River Oaks Properties, the developer for the project, made the announcement in a press release highlighting an overall $200 million, five-year retail expansion plan within the Sun City.
Phase I of the plan is expected to be completed by the end of 2015 and includes 500,000 square feet of space, which includes North Hills Crossing but most of which is spread across four new shopping centers opening in East El Paso. They include: Las Tiendas located at Zaragoza and Edgemere; Shops at Tierra Este, located at Tierra Este and Montana; Tierra Del Norte located at Tierra Este and Zaragoza; and a Home Depot anchored Shopping Center located at Zaragoza and Montwood, according to the press release.
No specific opening date in June was disclosed for North Hills Crossing and most likely depends on grand opening for individual retailers.
