The Los Santos Bi-National community is centrally located within the Borderplex, a tri-state, two country region with a population of 2.7 million people, consisting of the Las Cruces MSA, NM, El Paso, TX and Juarez, MX.
Los Santos has two fiber optic access points and multiple long-haul fiber optic lines available on the property.
Mass transit is a pillar of the Los Santos masterplan. The plan centers around the concept that residents should be able to reach services within a 5-minute walk and reach further destinations via mass transit. Currently, the U.S. side of Los Santos is served by bus service from the South Central Regional Transit Authority, which is interconnected with the bus services in Las Cruces, NM and El Paso, TX. The Mexican side of Los Santos receives bus service from private bus companies in Juarez, MX.
Although Los Santos sits atop the largest water aquifer in the region that will last well into the 22nd century, water is a precious resource in the desert. Understanding this, the Los Santos development is partnering with universities, agencies, and other local stakeholders on both sides of the border to test the viability of a desalination plant for the region.
The proposed site for the HQ2Countries campus is 1.5 miles from the existing 20 MW NRG Road Runner Solar Facility and there is an abundance of adjacent land for dedicated renewable photovoltaic power generation. The region already boasts 110 MW of solar production and the regional utility provider, El Paso Electric, is providing 100% coal-free electrical generation. Additional large-scale solar projects are planned for both sides of the border.
