EL PASO - Metro 31, which includes 325 units of apartments, 80 units of affordable senior housing and 48 live/work units, will be developed at the site of the former Northpark Mall in northeast El Paso, at the meeting of Dyer St. and Diana Dr.

Hunt Cos. Inc., through its affiliate Hunt Metro 31 LLC, will develop the project.

Integrated into the project will be Sun Metro’s BRIO station for northeast bus rapid transit, with covered parking for commuters and a transit plaza offering transfers to regional destinations.

In addition, the project will include about 135,000 sf of retail space anchored by a grocery store and as much as 100,000 sf of office space.

The development’s design is organized along “activated pedestrian roadways,” featuring shaded walkways, on-street parking and wide sidewalks with outdoor seating areas for food and beverage establishments.

Metro 31 will employ SmartCode development, which is stricter than standard zoning in many ways, regulating the location, shape and size of buildings and yards more precisely.
