EL PASO - From housing projects to giant retail complexes, several large development projects for El Paso will soon change the Sun City's skyline.

In Downtown El Paso, work is well underway for a 9000 seat Triple-A ballpark, worth $60.8 million, that advocates claim will bring more money to the Sun City.

The $70 million, 600,000-sf Fountains at Farah is another big-time development project for the Borderland. It will be opening in fall 2013.

Work has begun Eastside Crossing. The 188-unit, $22 million complex on the far East Side is unique because of its mix of public housing with market-rate apartments. The Eastside Crossings complex is expected to be completed by fall 2014.

And the University of Texas El Paso will build housing of its own. The university will be home to four multistory buildings with 100 housing units for students and up to 300 more apartments for rent.

In addition to the stadium, Fountains, and housing, a brand new hospital will replace the current William Beaumont Army Medical Center. It is a $650 million project expected to be completed in 2016.
