Weston Urban has purchased an historic building on the River Walk that once housed the famous Navy Club nightclub in order to provide river access to the adjacent Milam Building, which it plans to refurbish.
Weston Urban’s plan to build downtown’s tallest residential building, a 32-story apartment tower, took a step forward on Wednesday when a city board granted its design conceptual approval.
Plans for Weston Urban’s proposed 32-story apartment tower describe a skydeck close to the top of the building, and three retail spaces on the ground floor.
The local developer’s proposed 32-story tower will be the tallest residential building downtown by a long shot, bringing a style of high-rise urban living that most major cities can offer, but San Antonio cannot.
“We would love to host events here at the park in the future, during Fiesta or Oktoberfest, and see possible wedding receptions being held here,” the new park’s director, David Robinson Jr. said looking forward to when the pandemic is over.
An Austin real estate firm has purchased a three-story historic office building on the River Walk in a fast-growing part of west downtown.
