Progress continues to revitalize downtown Amarillo

Amarillo, TX - Progress continues to revitalizing downtown Amarillo.

After being approved about a year ago, the Amarillo City Commissioners got an update on the changes being made to downtown.

During the weekly commission meeting, Wallace Bajjali, the developer for the multi-million dollar project told the commission progress is being made when it comes to finalizing finances and contracts for the hotel and parking garage.

They say progress is also being made when it comes to moving the Coca Cola distribution center so there is a place to build the event venue.

City officials did vote to approve the use of 2.7 million dollars to make improvements to the street-scape by adding new lights, benches and fixing sidewalks.

The City Commission says those changes won't be made until the buildings are closer to being done.

Construction is expected to begin on the projects in late 2013.
