Overlooking the La Tuna Ice House and the San Antonio River hike/bike trailhead in the post-industrial Southtown Arts District, this pioneering mixed-income multi-family development is the first major concentration of new rental opportunity south of Downtown. Underground parking minimizes site constraints and allows the building to respond appropriately to the redeveloping urban context.  Management functions and amenities are pushed up to the street with glazed storefronts to book-end the building while stoop-served live/work units establish an authentic urban residential experience in between. The building’s corbelled brick masonry, stucco, and corrugated metal skin reinforce a material connection with neighboring utilitarian structures while embracing a distinctly contemporary aesthetic.
