Heritage Plaza

San Antonio, Texas

Heritage Plaza is a 5-story, mixed-use project located on the edge of lively and historic downtown San Antonio.  The project, adjacent to both the Riverwalk and HEB Headquarters, is located within the San Antonio Historic District and therefore has essential design elements of scale and proportionality that relate to the surrounding area, required by the San Antonio Historic Design Review Commission.  The rhythm of windows and patios, both inset and outboard, create a visually pleasing façade.  The materials, while subtly colorful, create texture and pattern through the smooth terracotta tile and cement plaster stucco. The building consists of 341 units in a building that wraps around an existing  historic house being used as a commercial office, where the scale of Heritage Plaza was brought down to address the scale of historic neighbor. The on-site amenities, spread throughout the project, include  4,500 GSF of ground-floor retail, a resort-style pool within the landscaped courtyard, a roof deck with downtown views, and a well-appointed fitness center. Both residential and retail parking is accommodated in a 6-level parking structure discretely screened by the residential building.
