It also includes some photos of it being built, and it even includes the original building elevations, which is kind of amazing. These are 90+ year construction documents. It even has a photograph of the architectural model they made of it during construction.

Anyway, I'll keep digging to see what I can find. I wish those elevations were more clear so we could read them more easily.

Here are the permits for the sign they installed atop the Weston Centre. It has a set of elevations showing the top of the building. They had two different designs they were considering.

HDRC permit for storefront restoration on the Robert E. Lee Hotel. This includes elevations of the building.

Application for review of roof modification for the La Quinta Inn at 303 Blum Street. They're wanting to remove the red masonard roof. This would shorten the building a bit, but only by a few feet. They also want to repaint it. This includes the elevations.

Maverick Building restoration. This has elevations included.

Site plan with elevations for 711 Broadway.

So, I kept going back to this post to add more HDRC links I was finding that I thought were maybe interesting rather than spamming the forum with a gazillion posts for each link.

I haven't found any more files since these. They only have files on their website going back to 2014. We'll just have to keep checking for current projects. I'm hoping that someday San Antonio will make all the old files accessible online because it would be a treasure trove of info.

Maybe that's a job someone from this forum can apply for. It would show taking the initiative in coming up with a need that needs to be fulfilled. The need being something along the lines of having access to this info for future zoning reference for planners and builders to make qualified judgements about proper building design B.S. B.S. blah blah blah...

(I'm looking at you, Kevin.)
