MCALLEN – McAllen commissioners approved the purchase of a new downtown transit administration building Tuesday.

The federal government will be assisting with the purchase.

The Federal Transit Administration has agreed to pay for 80% of the total purchase; the city of McAllen will pay for 20% of the cost.

The new building will serve as offices for McAllen Metro.

The facility will be located on the 100 block of South 15th Street and is approximately 30,000 square feet. 

For the meantime, the city will allow Catholic Charities to temporarily use the facility as its respite center.

The non-profit organization will use the facility until its new permanent building is complete.
