(AEDC) and the Alamo Chamber of Commerce
celebrated the start of new construction for the
future Bougainvillea Plaza located on the
southwest corner of Tower Road and Business 83
in Alamo with a groundbreaking ceremony held on
Monday, August 5. Phase I of the construction is
already underway for the first 3,600 square feet
of the plaza.
Plaza owner Dr. Jorge Escobedo shares, “I have
been working on this project for some time and
finally decided to get started with first part
of it.” The first phase of the project will
include a proposed medical specialty office and
future yogurt shop that will cater to the
traffic brought in from the adjacent Alamo
Fitness Center and Pro Care Therapies Clinic
which are also owned by Dr. Escobedo.
Executive Director Miki McCarthy comments, “the
construction of this new plaza shows the
progress being made in the City of Alamo and is
a sign of more development to come.” The total
project will be approximately 12,000 square feet
of new commercial space. The project is expected
to impact the city’s sales tax with the
attraction of new retail.
