San Antonio’s Pearl Site for Tear Down, Apartment Build
The Pearl just keeps expanding. A San Antonio city panel approved new plans by the redevelopers of the former brewery campus for a mid-rise apartment tower north of the property. The building will house 250 market-rate units and four townhouses, plus office and retail space on the ground floor and third floor.
The multifamily project is planned for a 2-acre industrial site at 102 E. Josephine St., which sits along the Museum Reach of the River Walk in the booming Tobin Hill neighborhood.
Oxbow Development Group plans to build a nine-story structure with a brick facade and stone banding, exposed structural concrete and decorative metal guardrails. A vacant, two-story warehouse and surface parking lot on the site will be demolished to make way for the building.
Nearby, Oxbow is building a 7-story residential building with 256 units. That building is among the more than 1,200 units already under construction or in progress just west of the Pearl.
