Miner Village on Mesa was promoted as new high end plaza when it was under construction (2005) but now contains a T-Mobile, a Wing Stop, and a submarine sandwich shop.

Default It's all relative...

What is high end to one is junk to another. True High End stores will not survive in El Paso, period.

DEFINITELY agreed.

sounds kinda "out there" but i guarantee if a Louis Vuitton would open up in El Paso it would definitely do well! Look at Coach: yes, it's a low-end luxury retailer, but how many Coach bags do you see on a daily basis? I work in a customer-facing industry and see hundreds each week. All of these girls run out to the Coach store to buy these bags because they're the "most high-end" bags you can get in person in town. If there was an LV here there's no doubt in my mind that women would be snatching them up like crazy just to keep up with the OTHER women who already have them.

and YES, i KNOW that LV would not come to EP - i am just giving an example....

You don't need a new +300,000 sqft mall to house a Louis Vuitton or other "high end" store. There are plenty of suitable existing high-end locations in El Paso (Cielo Vista, Outlet Mall, Sunland Park, Las Palmas...) that they could take if they wished to enter the El Paso market.

I'm just happy something positive is going to replace the crappy abandoned old farah building that is a huge eyesore right in a prime area of El Paso.. I can't wait for something to be built there already.

Default I remember when...

I recall a time when the Farah plant was the pride and joy of El Paso... imagine that! Of course, this was decades ago, and it boasted that it was the longest plant in the US, or World back in the 70s.

I remember Cielo Vista Mall's enterance into El Paso's legacy... I used to ride my bike through what was once Montgomery Wards and keep riding through the construction. How crazy... there were gaping holes where staircases now are located. I recall purposely braking and fishtailing the bike right before a big hole right in front of where the movie theater is/used to be (have not been there in years). It was just concrete at that point.

Anyway, it was the greatest thing to happen to El Paso, but the last time I was there, over 10 years, it looked trashy to me. Maybe it has been cleaned up, but just goes to show what "High End" ends up looking like.

Default Sunland Park?

Have a hard time accepting Sunland Park as "high end". Looks like an 80's mall and taking out fluorescent golf does not really push it in that direction.
