I don't think it was because of the crisis going on, but more so because they are claiming that they need more time to study this thing and to meet with the Hawkins Regency people that want to build the mall.

LOL.. I agree we do need one.. but I sent an email to Apple about that, I was told that I can get everyone of their products here in EL Paso ant various retail outlets, like Best Buy, AT&T, and a few others they listed.. so I don't think were getting one.. unless this Mall takes off.

I don't see why El Paso can't get an Apple store. We have one here in Albuquerque at ABQ Uptown.

Watching the DOW heading down, down, down, I think we could use some more pawn shops and liquor stores.

So I heard this AM that the county commissioners vote down the mall...was their take not enough? The quote I heard on the radio is "....now there is no project". I didn't hear or read the rationales, but now we are stuck with an eyesore and with this vote, who is going to want to try to develop that property knowing they will get screwed. I am disappointed that the county commissioners have stopped progress in its tracks. What do you all think?

First of all, for all those saying "Wow! That's amazing!" to the talk about "nothing like it in a 400-mile radius"...DUH! There are nearly NO major cities within that radius so of course there would be nothing like it!

Additionally, if there were to be a "high-end" retail center in El Paso, it should be located somewhere other than the Farrah spot. An ideal place would be between Executive Center and UTEP on the westside as it would be closer to the more wealthy zip codes in the city.

That being said, "high-end" in El Paso is pretty limited. I'm surprised to see that Coach has a store in El Paso, but anything above that is very unlikely. El Paso will not see a Nordstrom, or anything that is ACTUALLY high-end anytime soon.
