Weston Urban’s plan to restore the former Continental Hotel and build a 15-story apartment tower along San Pedro Creek in west downtown won conceptual approval Wednesday from the city’s historic review board.
A nonprofit arm of Bexar County is set to partner with developer Weston Urban to build a 250-unit mixed-income apartment project on West Commerce Street.
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.
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.
Two weeks ago, the developer purchased an old two-story commercial building on the northwest corner of Commerce and North Flores streets.
