I caught the last part on the news but I did hear a portion of Commerce street is closed for about a week downtown around the Canopy area. Maybe this is to move in some equipment to start the demo work for the Floodgate?

Floodgate apartments

Construction on an apartment tower on East Commerce next to Esquire Tavern is is expected to start by the end of 2019, according to city documents.

The project, spearheaded by local developer Keller Henderson, will include 63 rental units and roughly 10,000 square feet of commercial retail space, per an amended agreement under San Antonio’s Center City Housing Incentive Policy.

The developer plans to put $43 million into the project, with construction wrapping up by Nov. 30, 2021, and will receive $3.9 million worth of incentives.

The city initially OK’d incentives for the tower in 2017, with the developer planning to build 53 units and 15,000 square feet of commercial retail space, invest $40 million and finish construction by the end of October 2020.

The Floodgate Tower was first proposed in 2016 as a 10-story building and was later amended to reach 17 stories. Messages left for Henderson weren’t returned.

Just saw that this permit was pulled in Mid-November. This is the address for the Floodgate. A little disappointed to see that it is only listed at 15 stories, but still excited that this one starting.

"AI2441671 143 E COMMERCE ST New construction of a 15 story mixed use tow MARI KAYATURK - PHONE 207-0282$29,000,000.00 (210)207-1111 x"

It is on page 2 of the PDF linked above.

The week before (11/09/19) there was a permit for "Site work, foundation and associated utilities" at this same location. Looks like this project is starting to take off.

This will probably be a nice building, but the original was so cool.

Neither one is or was going to make a dent on the skyline anyway. The one they build will be nice. I just think this one would have been great. Oh well, be happy with what you get.

212 will make a dent. & I think there is a residential demand for a bigger building than the origional. I really like the new building, would love it if it were all glass! But there sure is something really cool about the original one for sure. Maybe the design can be used somewhere, someday.

I am happy for density. It's not in an area to be tall because of its location on the river. If it was on the north bank in that spot it could have been taller. But because it's south it would cast too big a shadow.

Density for the win! Let's get this bad boy up!

Well designed building, definitely deserving of praise. I would hate to see the river crowded out by tall buildings. I think this appropriate scale for its location and elegant. Way to go SA!

I'm assuming the permit is for the dynamic, octagonal...ish design vs. the Overland Partners version shown above. (Note: I did like the Overland version as well)

Yes, unless something drastic has happened.
