RTA Reveals Plans, Design of New Staples Street Center Project
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
The new Staples Street Center project was unveiled Thursday by the Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority.
The project is expected to bring nearly $40 million into our economy each year, along with 233 jobs.
"With everything going on in our area, here's another example of our landscape changing the next five years," State Rep. Todd Hunter said. "We're blossoming."
The project will not be financed with public dollars, and will be located near the corner of Staples and Leopard, across from City Hall.
"The county is looking forward to being a partner of this," Nueces County Judge Loyd Neal said. "We're going to put our human services department here, and also our veterans affairs officer will be here."
The price tag for the project is $29 million, and construction is expected to start soon.
