Property on the north side of 927 East Liberty and adjoining lots facing Promenade are now re-zoned from residential to commercial, paving the way for the property to be sold to United Credit Union for a new branch facility.
According to Eric Westhues, architect for the project, the one and a half acre parcel had the best flow of all of the properties that were considered for the facility.
Westhues said the average investment for a piece of land that size and the roughly six thousand square foot building is over a million dollars.
The new facility would have 25 employees, drive thru lanes and an ATM.
American Auto Supply that now occupies the lot will be demolished to make way for the branch facility.
The Mexico City Council rezoned the property at last night’s city council meeting.
