Providing a new Downtown living option, the 501 apartments at 501 Campbell Street held its grand opening Thursday.
The new five-level building houses 87 apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms with a parking garage and retail spaces on the ground floor. Each unit features high ceilings, granite tops, wood floors and energy efficient lighting.
The apartment complex, owned by Lisa Soto and Joe Soto, is just just a few blocks south of the El Paso County Courthouse.
“Downtown El Paso is chocked full of small businesses, cultural amenities, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. You can walk to them from the 501, you’ll soon be able to hop on the streetcar nearby, and residents have easy access to Interstate 10 and the Border Highway,” Soto said in a statement.
“Our family has been part of downtown El Paso for three generations," he added. "So having the opportunity to showcase what we love about Downtown while helping to build an exciting future for Downtown is doubly exciting."
