SAN ANTONIO | The Soto│ 6 FLOORS │ U/C

Quote:
Local developer Hixon Properties is partnering with the Cavender auto family to build a six-story office building on Broadway — the first phase of a new neighborhood they plan to construct on land they own along the downtown thoroughfare.

The building, at 711 Broadway, will include 125,000 square feet of office space and 15,000 of retail, according to a news release from Hixon.
Quote:
The building will be constructed with a timber structure rather than concrete or steel in a bid for sustainability, according to the news release, which calls the project “the first of its kind built in Texas.”
Loving the renderings and intrigued by the timber construction... 15,000 square feet of retail!!!

The Soto, a six-story office building at 711 Broadway

Work to begin Monday on Broadway timber-framed office building

For many years now, the segment of Broadway between McCullough and Jones avenues — in downtown's northern pocket — has been dying a slow death. Once known as San Antonio's dealership row, the last of the car salesmen, Cavender Cadillac, left five years ago for Loop 1604. Other, smaller businesses have cleared out leaving building shells and other blight.

Now, the Cavender family has partnered with local developer Hixon Properties to develop eight acres in the area into mixed-use buildings that will include residential units and retail space.

On Monday, it all begins with The Soto, a six-story office building at 711 Broadway, where a plasma donation center last operated. Crews will break ground on the project, the frame of which will be built using laminated timber, the first of its kind in Texas.

"We believe there is demand for a new type of office space – not necessarily what is offered by traditional Class A office," said John Beauchamp, Hixon's chief investment officer. "The demand is driven by companies that compete for talent. In order to recruit and retain top employees, they need to provide a great work environment. This is the opportunity. We think the mass timber construction and the River North neighborhood put our project in position to meet this demand."

This building's thread already exists here:
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=230030

Maybe the title of that thread needs to change to make it obvious, but the link goes to the original thread for this building. Please click on the link and make any comments there.

Tower Crane is up for The Soto

The tower crane is up for this project. It's seems as if they removed the crane from Encore SoFlo and drove it down the street to Broadway. The 3 crane view is pretty cool in these pics.

Elevator core, bathrooms, and AC stuff is on concrete. I bet we’ll start seeing timber in the next month or so.

Just one more elevator core and it's reached the full height. It kind of showed up out of no where.

This is now the most interesting structural project on the forum IMO. Will the bathrooms be in the wood or the concrete part?
