There’s One Born Every Minute

Downtown’s renovation is going swimmingly!

Here’s a story in the El Paso Inc. about the Abdou Building.

The historic Abdou Building in Downtown El Paso has a lot going for it. It is centrally located and has easy access to public transportation, shopping and growing Downtown attractions. But it needs work.

That’s why the young investors who bought the old, seven-story building late last year are moving forward with renovations – inside and out.

. . .

“As permits were just released to us, it’s imperative we begin as promptly as possible not only to give the tenants a place they are proud to live and work but also to enhance the property and the overall aesthetics of Downtown El Paso,” said Benjamin Marcus, one of the partners behind the building’s restoration.

The refurbished apartments would rent for around $2,500 a month, a new high for Downtown El Paso where a revitalization effort is underway.

But where will I park my Lambo?

Seriously, for $2,500 a month, you could buy a really nice house, and not have to deal with all that downtown riffraff.

Good luck with that, guys.

  1. Wow. Imagine that. $2,500.00 per month RENT. Then, if you have a car (but who needs one since this location is “convenient to public transportation?”), you will have to pay for parking. And, you’ll have to go either down to Silva’s for groceries, or up to Albertson’s. But, then, you’ll likely prefer Whole Foods, which would be even farther. Let’s see. What else? Oh, there’s just oodles of entertainment within walking distance, right? Movies? Bars and restaurants?
