I wish Chuco, it makes sense to build it somewhere between 18-22,000. Unfortunately our city council would rather build something that will be obsolete from day one. I guarantee after year one, they'll want it bigger and the cost will be double to add on. Right now the proposal is between 12 and 16,000, either way it will help the city, I just wish we could build something right the first time around. The nice part is it will add a new 23-24 story hotel (probably a Westin) that will become the convention center HQ hotel, The design also includes, retail, restaurants, and housing. Total project cost will be around $380 to $400 million.

On another note, Hunt Development Group (based in EP) is part of the new deal. Why are they not showing love for their home city and building something similar or even an ABQ Uptown type lifestyle center? Don't get me wrong I'm glad they are building such things here, but if we can support them EP definitely can too. And they could capitalize on another up and coming SW city.

Some more info

Arena Indios - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arena Indios will be a football stadium built on Juarez, Chihuahua
In a press presentation it was informed about the type of facilities which will be featured by Arena Indios. The main is its facade, which resembles more a mall than a football stadium. The stadium will also have a capacity of 40,000 spectators, plus 2 giant screens and VIP boxes. It will replace their current stadium, Estadio Olímpico Benito Juárez.
It was also said that the stadium will be located south of the city and that it'll meet the world standards to become the most modern and functional in the country, and in all of Latin America. It is said that Mexico will use this stadium in their bid for the 2018 World Cup.[citation needed]
The holder of the Secretariat of Social Development said that one of the core parts of the State Government is supporting the development of sport and that better be involved in a project such as football in La Primera División with Indios in Ciudad Juarez.

I think if the World Cup came to Juarez, it would benefit El Paso TX, Las Cruces NM and Juarez greatly.. and put yet another set of world eyes on us. This is great news, I hope they get the 2018 World Cup there.. Heck I may even try to go if I can.

Do they give a better idea just how south and about where it would be located?

Yeah it is pretty far away.. maybe they are hoping to use this as a spring board to expand the city in this direction.. and lure people away from the boarder and make Juarez more of its own identity.
