Many who call that part of town home are both shocked and pleasantly surprised as the general feeling is that the northeast is the city’s unwanted step-child as often as it gets passed over by so many retailers.

The newest Olive Garden will be the fourth in El Paso. The three currently slinging pasta are located at 1870 Joe Battle in the El Paseo Marketplace, in the Cielo Vista Mall parking lot, and on Sunland Park Drive in the Sunland Park Mall parking lot.

The future northeast location will be joining current tenants Boozy Taco and Tap, Pizza Hut, Gentlemen's Barber Shop and other future national and local businesses at The Courts at Kenworthy located at the corner of Woodrow Bean Transmountain and Kenworthy.

Northeast El Paso has been undeserved by businesses for years, but more shopping and dining establishments are opening locations in the area or announcing plans to do so spurred in part by the Cohen Reimagination project and the Camp Cohen water park.

And it’s not just restaurants. A residential community that will includes homes and apartments, a school, and a hike and bike trail system is currently being developed near Painted Dunes Golf Course.
