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.
Weston Urban has submitted plans to the city to build a 32-story apartment tower with ground-floor retail a block from Geekdom and the Frost Tower.
Weston Urban plans to build 274 apartments behind the old Continental Hotel on West Commerce Street.
In west downtown, especially on West Commerce Street, multiple parties are converging to create what should become San Antonio’s next culinary destination.
As Weston Urban continues to acquire land in west downtown, the developer expects to add 1,000 housing units to the area in the next 2-4 years. That’s just the initial phase.
Weston Urban is obligated to build at least 265 housing units on nearby properties it purchased, or will purchase, from the city and Frost Bank. Its housing production in west downtown will “far exceed that.”
