EL PASO - Investment Builders Inc. is set to break ground on a $16 million, 160-unit upscale apartment complex called Casitas Del Este Apartments, located at 1331 Pullman Dr. on the East Side.

About 90 percent of the complex will be one- and two-bedroom apartments, and about 10 percent will be three-bedroom units. The apartments will range from 700 sf to 1,400 sf, and rents will range from $700 for a one-bedroom to $1,400 for a three-bedroom.
The ten-acre project is being marketed as being set apart from the competition by having the 160 units all at ground level.

El Paso had a 94.5 percent apartment occupancy rate in third quarter 2012, down slightly from 97 percent for the 3Q 2011, according to ARA Apartment Realty Advisors.

El Paso apartment rents averaged $737 in 3Q 2012, up almost 7 percent from a year ago. Rents averaged from $642 for a one-bedroom to $1,152 for a four-bedroom.

Investment Builders Inc. is also building a 184-unit, upscale apartment complex called Villas at Helen of Troy on the West Side. The company also recently opened a small apartment complex on the East Side, and finished the second phase of another complex in Northeast El Paso.
