Wow, this has jogged a long forgotten memory. Inside these doors were where you dealt with layaway purchases at Sears in Central Park Mall.

Thanks for posting this. Brings back lots of memories. Nettie Brooks was my great-grandmother. Spent lots of time in that mall. Had to visit sears recently before it closed. Still smelled the same, same flooring and railing around the escalator area. I remember when they took the fountain out and added the merry-go-round.

EVO Entertainment plans 15,000-seat amphitheater in Schertz

San Antonio Business Journal

San Marcos-based EVO Entertainment Group has plans to complement its previously proposed project in Schertz with its first amphitheater called EVO Live.

The company, which has multiple movie theater and entertainment complexes in Texas, describes EVO Live as a state-of-the-art outdoor music and entertainment venue with seating for nearly 15,000 people. The company's first EVO Live will be on 27 acres just south of the proposed EVO Entertainment complex at Wiederstein Ranch.

EVO CEO Mitchell Roberts said Josh Majors — director of development for WR1 LLC, the company developing Wiederstein Ranch — was key in discussing how to incorporate music and live entertainment into EVO.

"We were brainstorming ideas that would complement our EVO Entertainment facility, as well as the overall development at Weiderstein Ranch, and Josh had the idea of a live music venue," Roberts said. "It just so happened that an amphitheater was something I had been kicking around. As far as time and place, I can’t think of any better. The I-35 corridor, particularly the Schertz area, is absolutely exploding but has a noticeable void when it comes to entertainment options. EVO, EVO Live and the Weiderstein Ranch development are primed to not only fill that void, but become an incredible entertainment destination unlike anything we’re currently seeing in Central Texas."

The venue will feature multiple tiers of seating, including covered reserved seating, a lawn area and VIP club areas, as well as multiple food and drink options. The venue plans to host an array of national touring artists and talent, as well as local artists and other community events, with the goal of becoming a national destination and year-round gathering place. EVO Entertainment Group will operate and manage the facility, and Roberts said he's in talks with national companies to handle programming and talent booking at the venue.

A parking lot with more than 2,000 spaces will be exclusively for amphitheater goers.

That's great news and it's something SA has been missing since they shut down the old Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.

Speaking of which, are they planning on upgrading the old amphitheater or will this be a completely new venue? I reached my free article limit with the SABJ so I couldn't access the full article.

New. Right behind the movie theater they ARE building. I told my "good authority" that they will no longer be relied upon... ( suburban thread for context)

Thank you. More excited about it now that I know it'll be a totally new development.

this is outstanding news for the entire SA area as it will be able to bring back many of the groups that SA stopped getting when the Verizon amphitheater closed. it will put SA back in the music scene again. as for the area, hopefully this will generate the development of some better restaurants. but god help that part of I-35.

The long abandoned Four Oaks Tower off Huebner Road may soon finally be finished, though not as originally planned.

The nine-story, 82,206-square-foot tower, which was built more than a decade ago to be a 47-unit luxury senior living complex, is being converted into a 91-unit luxury apartment complex by Mission DG, an affiliate of local developer 210 Development Group. The redeveloped apartment complex at 11327 Expo Blvd. will feature new amenities including an infinity pool and coworking space.

"It's interesting because the first floor was finished-out, the second floor had a few units finished, and the top floor had six finished-out penthouses. Everything else was basically a shell," 210 Development Group Assistant Project Manager Holly Thoman said.

Anyone know what they might be building at the old Bank of America drive-through banking center of i/10 and Wurzbach, near the Omni hotel off of the colonnade area?
