Mesa Hills Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Utterly suburban and one of the most upscale neighborhoods in north El Paso, Mesa Hills is just three miles west of the Franklin Mountains. It is a fairly hilly area with streets that zig and zag their way around the terrain. As with many neighborhoods in El Paso, the street names are themed. In Mesa Hills, it’s all about fun. Two of the main roads leading into the area are Confetti Drive and North Festival Drive. These lead to apartments and homes on Cabaret, Vaudeville, Carousel, Carnival and Mardi Gras Drive.
North Mesa Street along the northeastern edge is the commercial zone. Along this roadway, which is also part of Route 20, are restaurants such as India Palace, Mi Placi, and Marcello’s. Upscale shops such as Sheldon Jewelry, La Contessa and Jerusalem International Foods also front Route 20. Planet Fitness is at North Mesa Street and South Mesa Hills Drive.
Schools in this family friendly area include the Morehead Middle School on Confetti Drive, Johnson Elementary on Carousel Drive, and the Jewish Community Center Preschool on Wallenberg Drive. Nearby houses of worship include St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church on South Festival Drive, St George Antiochian Orthodox Church on North Festival Drive, Santa Teresita Catholic Church on Zapal Avenue, and Temple Beth Israel on San Saba Road.
On the far western corner of Mesa Hills off of Sunland Park Drive and Interstate 10 is the Sunland Park Mall. This is a two level enclosed shopping center that offers Sears, Macy’s, and two Dillard outlets as the anchor stores. A sampling of other available stores includes American Eagle Outfitters, Gap, Old Navy, Pier 1 Imports, and Victoria’s Secret. A food court and movie theaters are also on site.
