Also the city could be closing the deal after the sale of what many know as the wetlands, plus more area, to Laredo Town Center. An estimated $15 million has always been the expected profit on the purchase for a strip mall out by Lake Casa Blanca. Now details are being modified since eleven of the 88 acres are now being set aside for an overpass on Loop 20. Those modifications include the change of acreage, a higher appraisal value than before, and extra profits is what city officials tell us. This is a break down of figures provided to us: $9.9 million in closing pay, $2.1 million that town center owed the city while they were leasing before this sale, and now aside from that an estimated $4.2 million on what they are calling profit participation; that’s profit the city can gain on land sold by town center possibly to retailers. Councilman Roque Vela says the changes are a winning situation for the city, tax payers and the buyers.
