Downtown Mesquite Manager Beverly Abell explained, “Restaurants and entertainment venues are high on the business development priority list adopted by our Mesquite Downtown Advisory Board and is a big part of the vision for the Front Street Station project.” She also said that the City has taken steps in the lease agreement to embrace the integrity and history of the property, while adapting it to modern-day uses.
Front Street Station is a $5.5 million public improvement project that was launched in August 2019. It will serve as an event and gathering space for Downtown. The primary focal point will be an entertainment space with facilities for vendors. The project also doubles the amount of off street parking in the Downtown area.
City Manager Cliff Keheley added, “Redevelopment of Downtown is a long term project. I appreciate the community stakeholders, business owners and Council for their vision on what Downtown Mesquite can be. Alejandro’s at Front Street Station is just the first step in bringing more businesses to this area. There is more to come.”
