A mobilization on social media failed to keep the city’s Historic and Design Review Commission (HRDC) from approving a plan to build a new Rosario’s restaurant, which would all but enclose the patio of neighboring Maverick Texas Brasserie.
Historic and Design Review Commission
Weston Urban expects to begin work on its $107 million high-end apartment building in the middle of this year.
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.
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.
The 20-story hotel and office tower GrayStreet Partners is planning at 1603 Broadway will cost an estimated $97 million to build, and construction could start Feb. 1.
A tiny park is slated for Jefferson Street next to the Burns building.
The Austin-based store will offer a little bit of everything, “coffee and breakfast tacos, grab-and-go salads and sandwiches, grocery, beer/wine, snacks, beverages.”
