Hildebrand and Broadway development

I noticed a demolition crew is preparing to demolish the old Denny's on Broadway near Hildebrand. Anyone know what's going in there?

Both the hotel and office building received TIRZ funding, so hopefully those will start turning dirt really soon.

A 256 unit multi-family project also received some funding. It looks like it covers the two blocks between 1221 and the river. Has there been any info posted here about that project?

As a side note on the office building, it sounds like maybe one of SA's law firms is moving from the 410 area into River North. I wonder if there are any other already established offices looking at space in the area.

The 256-unit multi-family project is intriguing. That area at the end of Roy Smith st. is just terrible looking. The street itself barely exists right now.

Well.... add up another 256 to the near 1000 units that are in the immediate area. That just solidifies the optimism for the area, as if we needed any more.
As the Can Plant comes online in a few months (Aug. move-in) and people move in, expect another project to possibly be announced before the end of the year, and thats not including Graham Weston's big plans within the next 2 years that will be announced before the Fall.


RiverNorth/Pearl
1221 - Phase I - 268 units - Complete
Phase II - 39 units - U/C
Pearl - Can Plant - 211 units - U/C
Ave. B - 19 units - U/C
Admin/Retail Bldg. - 74 units - U/C
1800 - 231 units - U/C
Mosaic - 114 units - U/C
RiverNorth MFDev. - 256 units - planned
-------------------------
Complete = 268 units - U/C = 688 - planned = 256
Total = 1212 units

SouthTown/SoFlo
Cevallos Lofts - 252 units - Complete
Steel House Lofts - 67 units - U/C
The 1010 - 46 units - U/C
-------------------------
Total = 365 units


Last time I crunched the (est.) numbers, there was an avg. of 1.4 person(s) per unit in/around DT. At that same (est.) rate, that would put the number of new residents in RN/Pearl at ~ 1700 and the number in SouthTown to about 511 new residents.

Sounds great! FYI...I believe The Viceroy has had a name change. Signs out front now say it's called "1010 South Flores".

Never heard of the 256 unit project or A.A. Seeligson. Hope it's a good one and glad to see so much new development planned for the area.

Not sure if anyone posted this one. I'm posting just to make sure we capture it, add its 17 units to the count and keep tabs.

Broadway changes take area in a new direction
By Valentino Lucio

A few blocks south along North Alamo Street, longtime San Antonian Mitch McManus is developing the Casa Blanca Lofts, a low-density condominium project that is expected to come online late next year.

McManus, who owns several properties in and around downtown, said it was the overall outlook and plan for the area that made him invest there.

So adding Quincy and Casa Blanca, we get

RiverNorth/Pearl
1221 - Phase I - 268 units - Complete
Phase II - 39 units - U/C
Pearl - Can Plant - 211 units - U/C
Ave. B - 19 units - U/C
Admin/Retail Bldg. - 74 units - U/C
1800 - 231 units - U/C
Mosaic - 114 units - U/C
Hixon Development - 256 units - planned
Casa Blanca Condos - 17 units - planned
East Quincy Townhomes - 25 units - planned
-------------------------
268 complete + 688 u/c + 298 planned
Total = 1254 units

Tobin Hill/Main Street
Tobin Lofts @ SAC - 225 units - planned
Ogden Modern - 11 units - planned
-------------------------
Total = 236 units

SouthTown/SoFlo
Cevallos Lofts - 252 units - Complete
Steel House Lofts - 67 units - U/C
The 1010 - 46 units - U/C
-------------------------
252 complete + 113 u/c
Total = 365 units

Total unit count = 1,855

That's almost 1,900 new people daily around Pearl and about 2,600 total in greater downtown. Hopefully soon we can include:

Digonwitty Hill
Jason Wittig Project - 100 units - planned
-------------------------
Total = 100 units

It's starting to get hard to keep track, but if we have a minimum # of units a project has to 4 (to keep track of greater density than sfh or duplexes), then you would also have to include Cevallos Modern (4) and the rest of TerraMarks projects to the list. There will be one more project on Clay St. Not quite sure where CityView (could be near HemisView or near CityView Inn on Commerce?) or Uptown (maybe also Tobin Hill?) but CherryView Modern will be on the corner of Burnet/Cherry; I guess we have to wait a bit to get more details on those.
Lets also not forget Blue Star ph. 2 (320 planned units) and the Lone Star site which is/was under contract (700 planned units). Just as much work is being done on those 2 sites as is on the site of the Hixon project behind 1221.

Corrected my earlier post. According to today's SA Business Journal, the Tobin Lofts will have 225 units, 75 more than originally listed by SAC.

According to the same article, the developer is also looking at doing student-focused projects around St. Mary's and A&M SA.

Anybody notice how they cleared the old apartments behind the site of the new childrens museum of broadway. Its a rather large area.

Well i did a search and what do you know, more apartments coming to the area. Looks like it will be called the "Brackenridge."

"The museum already has spurred surrounding development. Embrey Partners, which developed the Artessa at Quarry Village as well as the newly-opened Can Plant, has received city incentives that will allow the developer to demolish the asbestos-ridden, blighted apartments that sit behind the future museum site. In their place will come The Brackenridge, adding further attractive residential density to the Broadway corridor."

They will have some killer views of DT since they are on top of a hill...

260 more units proposed next to 1221 Broadway

More apartments for Museum Reach

Plans for the River House land on the Historic and Design Review Commission, which meets at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Development & Business Services Center, 1901 S. Alamo St.

It's nice enough looking, but there doesn't seem to be any retail. 260 units with no retail? Big mistake.

I would love to see retail incorporated too, but I am still glad to see this project move along.
