“A huge amount of traffic passes through this area every day, so it is great to see interest in the redevelopment of this property in particular and Longview’s I-20 corridor in general.”  Mayor Andy Mack

The Longview Economic Development Corporation (LEDCO) Board of Directors approves execution of contract for 3127 Estes Parkway with Vaquero Ventures. 

The 6.62-acre site on Estes, purchased by LEDCO in September 2013, was formally an abandoned Holiday Inn and gas station. The property sat vacant for many years and had become a blighted eye-sore for Longview’s I-20 corridor. Redevelopment of this site has been a top priority for LEDCO and the City of Longview. This redevelopment project was a leading factor in the formation of the I-20 Task Force and investment in the I-20 Corridor Small Area Study.

 “A huge amount of traffic passes through this area every day, so it is great to see interest in the redevelopment of this property in particular and Longview’s I-20 corridor in general.”  Mayor Andy Mack

“Today is an exciting day not only for LEDCO, but for Longview as well. I would like to thank Vaquero Ventures for their interest in our site, and I look forward to working closely with them to see that this development gets across the finish line. I would also like to thank the LEDCO board, staff, City of Longview, county officials and TxDOT for working together to put the pieces in place for LEDCO to market this property more effectively. Those efforts paid off and this is the first step towards not only seeing an important piece of property get redeveloped, but the Estes Parkway corridor as well.” John Martin, LEDCO Board of Directors President

“We are grateful to be working alongside LEDCO and the City of Longview on this exciting new development. Our goal is to deliver a product that will best serve the surrounding community and breathe new life into the area.” Tyler Moore, Vaquero Ventures
