In an apparent bid to distinguish itself from other developers in town, the Meyers Group, those people who are trying to win approval for their 22-story luxury apartment tower on the west side, ran this ad touting their honesty and integrity in this weekend’s El Paso Inc. Can you read that ad on your smart phone? Here’s the text.
HONESTY AND INTEGRITY ARE IMPORTANT TO THE MEYERS GROUP
We want to clear the air about an apparent misunderstanding. A few weeks ago, we ran some ads which indicated the Shadow Mountain project will be 100% privately funded. While that remains true as to the cost of developing the property, we want to be clear about our intentions to seek future tax incentives from the State of Texas as well as from The City of El Paso similar to those which the city and the state have given to other projects — projects which have successfully turned vacant lots into valuable assets all over El Paso.
You have to admit that honesty and integrity aren’t words you usually find in a sentence about developers here in El Paso.
