San Antonio Affordable Housing Inc., a nonprofit branch of the city, plans to build two experimental homes on the far East Side, one using earthen materials for its walls, another whose foundation can be adjusted post-construction.
Rinconcito de Esperanza
Twenty seven years into its run, the youth arts education nonprofit is preparing to open the doors on its massive new West Side space by Apache Creek later this year.
The Rinconcito de Esperanza cultural hub has received $1.5 million from the city to rehab seven historic homes into a community health center, an internet access point and a studio for recording oral histories.
The Esperanza Peace & Justice Center has initiated the creation of a historic district on the West Side.
Rehab work to create the Museo del Westside, a museum dedicated to West Side history and culture that’s going into an old icehouse, could begin this fall.
