Former offices soon available for lease
Effective today, Jan. 29, Edinburg EDC downtown offices are housed on the second floor of Edinburg City Hall, located at 415 W. University Drive. The move allows Edinburg EDC to lease its vacated office spaces at 101 N. 10th Avenue, thus generating new non-tax revenue for its jobs-creation mission.
“Upon my request, Edinburg City Manager Richard Hinojosa confirmed that there were excellent office space and related resources available at City Hall to house the staff and activities of the Edinburg Economic Development Corporation and its board of directors,” the mayor said. “This action allows the Edinburg EDC to lease its vacated offices spaces, which will generate new non-tax revenue for its many vital projects.”
The Edinburg EDC is now based on the second floor at City Hall, as part of the Edinburg City Manager’s suite. The EDC board of directors already use the Council Chambers at Edinburg City Hall for its public meetings.
“Edinburg City Hall will now truly become a one-stop center for economic development, because all the key issues needed for businesses to grow, from learning the zoning requirements, obtaining building permits, meeting with the key city and Edinburg EDC leadership, and so on, all will now take place in one location,” said City Councilmember Gilbert Enríquez. “When potential developers come into City Hall, they are able to go to every department and get the answers they need in order to continue with the activities they want to do in Edinburg.”
Soon to be available for lease, the former Edinburg EDC offices are 3,200 square feet. That suite features five offices, one receptionist area, two conference rooms, a kitchen and one work station. In addition, the area includes a waiting area, a copy area, three bathrooms, closets and storage rooms.
