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.
Restaurateur Lisa Wong received conceptual approval from a city commission on Wednesday to demolish most of the old El Mirador building on South St. Mary’s Street so she can build a new home for Southtown staple Rosario’s.
The project would be the fourth major multifamily development by Silver Ventures, and would push the Pearl’s apartment total past 900 units.
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.
