Dave & Buster’s plans venue for Rivercenter

Quote:
by W. Scott Bailey
Date: Friday, January 11, 2013

Antonio, which attracts millions of visitors downtown annually, is now luring more residents to the heart of the city.

That effort is already paying dividends, as San Antonio is now earning interest from companies looking to tap into that expanding mix of tourists and locals.

Count Dave & Buster’s among the believers. The Dallas-based company plans to invest $15 million to develop a new dining, arcade and entertainment venue at Rivercenter, and it expects that the 33,000-square-foot project will be part of a larger transformation of the downtown mall.

200 HOMES TO BE BUILT NEAR CAMPUS OF TEXAS A&M SAN ANTONIO



Quote:
San Antonio, February 12, 2013 — Verano Land Group today announced plans for the construction and sale of 200 residential homes on the city’s south side. Two San Antonio based home builders, Greenboro Homes and David Anderson Homes have committed to purchase 200 finished lots beginning in 2013. The first homes are scheduled for completion by December of this year.

“We are very excited to have Greenboro and Anderson as our signature homebuilders,” said Tim Bartlett, CEO of the Verano Land Group. “The product they have proposed reflects our commitment to excellence, uniqueness, functionality, and maintaining an urban density reflected in our master plan.”

The Verano Land Group plans construction of more than 2,000 single family residences over the next ten years. Phase one will consist of sizes ranging from 1,400 to more than 2,000 square feet with most homes having front porches and rear accessed garages. Positioned to appeal to first-time buyers, singles, young families, empty nesters, and to workers on the Southside of San Antonio as well as the Eagle Ford region, prices will range from $150,000 to $225,000. All homes will be sold through a central sales center set to open in August.

Concepts for HemisFair’s new play area





Quote:
HemisFair Park planners are moving fast on the first phase of development — roughly seven acres on the southwest corner of the park — what is mostly a really imaginative playground for kids, but with attractions for adults, too. Reminded me of Munchkinland, actually.

Click here to download the plan, which was prepared by Berkley, Calif.-based urban design group MIG Inc., and New York-based Project for Public Spaces. The groups used public input here and there including an online survey which yielded 494 responses.

This design is not set in stone. It’s just a preliminary document from which the design contractor will work from. A whole other public process will take place once the design contractor is selected.

A request for qualifications has been issued for the contractor. The deadline is March 12 for potential contractors to apply. It’s anticipated that interviews would be conducted in April, and a finalist considered by the City Council in May.

The project is budgeted for $5.5 million, which comes from $15 million in 2012-2017 bond money designated for HemisFair park, recreation and open space. Should the project exceed the $5.5 million, then the HemisFair Park Area Redevelopment Corp. will turn to private contributions.

Peanut Factory Lofts



Quote:
The first major residential development for downtown's near West Side is in the works.

The Peanut Factory Lofts — located on the site of a defunct peanut processing plant — is a 98-unit residential project that's expected to dedicate more than half of its rooms to student housing. The roughly $10 million project at 1025 S. Frio St. is about half a mile from the University of Texas at San Antonio's downtown campus.

The apartments, which will range from about 600 to 1,900 square feet, will see rents at about $1.35 per square foot, said Mark Tolley, director of residential services at 210 Developers, the development firm. That's about 8 cents lower than the average rental rate downtown, according to fourth-quarter data from Austin Investor

Apartments will be situated inside the main five-story building as well as four silos and two other buildings on the property. The developer also plans to construct another building adjacent to the property that will be used for more residential space.

Amenities there will include two landscaped courtyards and swimming pool.

Construction is expected to start in April and it's scheduled for completion in fall 2014.

Kimpton to manage Hotel Pearl

Quote:
By Valentino Lucio
February 14, 2013

The Pearl Brewery has teamed with Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants to open a four-star boutique hotel.

To be located in the former brewery's 119-year-old brew house, the 146-room Hotel Pearl will have two restaurants, a roof-top pool, venue space and cocktail bar, according to a news release. To accommodate the rooms, a six-story tower will be built behind the brew house, alongside the Pearl's amphitheater on the San Antonio River.

Officials chase after 'Bullet' and its $28 billion impact

Quote:
Update February 18, 2013

On Jan. 10, the Express-News reported that if San Antonio is lucky enough to land the project, it would bring a minimum of 3,000 jobs over time to Port San Antonio on the Southwest Side, with average annual pay of at least $80,000.

Now here's the upper range: as many as 5,000 jobs paying as much as $100,000 on average.

And a couple of new tidbits, gleaned from sources close of the recruitment drive: spending to build a facility for R&D and manufacturing — believed to be a mix of commercial and military work — would exceed $1 billion, and the total economic impact would hit $28 billion over a 10-year period.

But we're in good company. Most of the local insiders sweating out the site-selection process, in which San Antonio is said to be competing against sites in Florida and Washington, don't know the manufacturer's identity, either.

Or if they do, they're exhibiting a discipline rarely seen in San Antonio's chisme-loving

The aerospace firm has been working with locals through third-party consultants.

Wealthy, business-savvy Mexican immigrants transform Texas city

Quote:
SAN ANTONIO — The Mexican businessmen in Rolexes and Burberry ties meet on the north side of town, at Cielito Lindo Restaurant, or at new neighboring country clubs. Their wives frequent Neiman Marcus, Tiffany's and Brooks Brothers at the nearby mall. Their children park Porsches with Mexican license plates in the student lots at Reagan High School.

They are part of a wave of legal Mexican immigrants who have been overlooked in the national debate over how to deal with their largely impoverished illegal compatriots. Propelled north by drug cartel violence, they paid thousands of dollars to hire attorneys and obtain investors' visas for themselves and their families (including maids). They have regrouped in gated developments in several Texas cities, where their growing influence has been compared to the impact of well-heeled Cuban refugees who arrived in Miami decades ago.

Nowhere is the evidence more striking than in San Antonio, Texas' second-largest city and a short private-jet hop from Monterrey, Mexico, where many of the new immigrants built their wealth. They have poured into developments with names like the Dominion, Stone Oak and Sonterra that were cut into the rocky hills and oak groves north of the Loop 1604 highway that rings the city.

More than 50,000 Mexican nationals now live permanently in San Antonio, city officials say, turning an upscale enclave known as "Sonterrey" or "Little Monterrey" into the city's second-fastest growing ZIP code.

Real estate agent Ana Sarabia caters to the new arrivals — finding them immigration lawyers, new schools, banks and office space — and sees them reshaping her hometown.

"I can see it transitioning," said Sarabia, 45, who lived for a time in Mexico City. "This has always been a bicultural city. Parts of it have now become a new Mexico."
http://articles.latimes.com/2013/mar...errey-20130324

To put it in other words San Antonio is the new "Vice City".
