Amarillo’s Downtown Revitaliation Facing Delay
It’s hard to see much progress with Amarillo’s downtown revitalization project. Don’t worry, all systems are still a ‘go’ but there have been some unforeseen delays.
The downtown project is a huge undertaking for Amarillo with a convention center hotel, parking garage and multipurpose sports venue planned. Unfortunately the date for breaking ground on these projects has been delayed. Officials are still searching for the private funding needed to complete the projects.
There are plenty of other projects involved with the revitalization that are underway and some have been completed. The city is ahead of schedule on projects they were ordered to complete within a seven year period.
The hotel and garage are now not expected to be completed until 2015 with groundbreaking sometime next year. The sports venue will break ground soon after.
