Downtown El Paso's skyline will continue to change as construction on WestStar Tower is well underway and the public will see more vertical activity as 2018 comes to an end. Since the official groundbreaking in June of this year, crews have been working diligently to clear the lot for WestStar Tower at Hunt Plaza which encompasses the entire city block bordered by Mesa Street, Missouri Avenue, Oregon Street and Wyoming Avenue. Earlier this month, the large construction crane was delivered onsite. When complete, WestStar Tower, a multi-tenant, multi-level office building, will be the tallest building in El Paso at 313 feet and 6 inches high.
