Broadway & Hildebrand

Recommended Posts

Koontz McCombs have announced plans to build a 25-story, 80-unit condominium tower on 2.4 acres located at the corner of Broadway & Hildebrand, north of downtown San Antonio. The site currently is home to the historic Earl Abel's restaurant. Construction could begin in early 2006 and last through 2008. A zoning change allowing for multi-family use would be required for this project to take place. The new tower is being designed by Ziegler-Cooper Architects.

Hey eastsider do you think you can find a renduring of the project? I wonder if the project will have to go before the Historic and Design Review Commission like the convention hotel did? It would be nice to see a more modern approach to this tower. Seems like Ziegler and Cooper is aimed at more modern architecture.

The building is still in the design stages, so no rendering yet. I do like Ziegler-Coopers work, but one of the articles mentions that this building will blend into the existing architecture of the area so it will be interesting to see what they come up with.

Hello Eastsider,

I noticed you repeated a posting from November. Do you have any current info such as photos, designs or perhaps any statements made by the developers or architects since then.

The San Antonio Zoning Commission voted 6-3 in favor for allowing a zoning change at the proposed tower from commercial to high-density multi-family. They also removed height restrictions at the site. The zoning change is now planned to go before the city council on May 18th.

I believe that high rises in this part of the city are inevitable. San Antonio still has not shed it's small town mentality. The feel of small town may be welcome but progression will only lead to a more cosmopolitan status that Houston and Dallas share. Time will tell.
