The Strand is a one-story neighborhood retail center built on a prominent corner in northwest San Antonio within sight of IH-10 West.  The center is an upscale mix of brick, stone, and cast stone with wood and metal canopies that allude to older retail buildings. Special canopies and glass clerestories mark larger lease spaces and provide unique corners for the property, and a small courtyard and generous sidewalks allow for outdoor dining areas.  A seventy foot high tower provides acts as a beacon for the center from adjacent IH-10.
