More Trouble on Tap for Lone Star Brewery
The abandoned Lone Star Brewery on San Antonio’s south side, is in trouble once again. The 35-acre property at 600 Lone Star Blvd. has undergone at least four failed revitalization plans and was, at the 11th hour, yanked from a public auction. Now, the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) filed a formal notice, demanding that the owner plug three deteriorated water wells on the property. The concern is over potential contamination.
The wells on the property once supplied water to the brewery. Under EAA rules, abandoned wells need to be plugged, to avoid pollution from migrating from the surface to the aquifer.
Parkview Capital Credit took over ownership of the property from Aqualand Development, which had, in turn, planned a $300 million effort to turn the vacant brewery into a mixed-use development.
