River Walk Expansion to Lead to more San Antonio development

San Antonio Starts Work on “The Link”

The Link would connect the San Antonio River Walk and the San Pedro Creek Culture Park. The proposed public pathway will include green spaces, water features and public art.

It’s not being designed solely as a public amenity. There is a strong economic development component, as well. Universal Services Group already has plans to anchor one end of The Link with the new Dream Hotel, part of a complex of skyscrapers for office space, housing, retail and mixed-use space.

San Antonio-area County Commissioner Tommy Calvert is on board, “What we have found in all these projects that the new development around these projects ends up paying for the debt service for the infrastructure.” Calvert added that the development, as a result of The Link, is valued at $400 million. The City has allocated $41 million to start work on the public improvement.
