El Paso Moves To Redevelop Historic Downtown

El Paso is one of the last Southwest cities to turn its downtown around, but will the proposed plan work?

"If successful, the redevelopment plan would boost the Downtown tax base with high-end shopping, restaurants, a mercado, movie theaters, art galleries, homes and apartments as well as a new multipurpose arena for major sporting events, rock concerts and convention events."
