If you’ve driven through I-10 in west El Paso between Sunland Park and Executive Center lately you may have noticed a steel structure going up.

The steel frame is the beginning of what will ultimately become Top Golf, a high-tech driving range and entertainment complex being built within the 292-acre Montecillo development on North Mesa.

According to Rick Isaias, Lead Public Affairs Coordinator for the City of El Paso, crews will finish building the frame in a few weeks and will then begin to pour the concrete deck. Work on the hitting bays and the outfield has also begun.

Once completed, the 3-level, 65,000-square-foot venue will have 102 climate-controlled hitting bays, a bar and restaurant, private event space, and hundreds of HDTVs.

Patrick Hidder, Project Manager for ARCO/Murray Design Build, told Isaias crews are on schedule to complete the facility before the end of 2017.

City Council unanimously approved a $5 million incentive agreement on Nov. 1, 2016, agreeing to give the Dallas-based chain property tax and sales tax rebates totaling $5.1 million over 15 and 17 years respectfully, and a $34,000 rebate on certain building and planning fees.

El Paso will be Top Golf's 10th Texas location.
