A new edificio (building) is going up next door to Las Pulgas, the famed Tijuana nightclub (named after “fleas”) on Avenida Revolución. Being built over the former Las Pulgas parking lot, the building so far appears to be a multi-storied parking structure. (Click photos below to enlarge.)
Around the corner, the new structure wraps around the old Motel Leon, an artifact from the era when the Jai Alai Palace was hoppin’ and a must-see tourist attraction.
Down the block is the legendary Mexican department store Sanborn’s and its famed restaurant.
A block north is the newly renovated Calle Sexta (6th Street), with its bevy of new nightclubs catering to the hardcore clubbing crowd.
