Location: San Antonio
Client: Lifshutz Companies, San Antonio Housing Authority.

The San Antonio Housing Authority made the momentous decision to redevelop thirty-six acres of concentrated and outdated public housing bordering Lavaca, San Antonio’s oldest residential neighborhood.  The Lavaca Neighborhood Association, the client, and the design team together generated a mixed-density, mixed-use, mixed-income infill plan that would restore the character of the nineteenth century street grid and re-engage the existing neighborhood.  Over a decade of ongoing implementation has propelled the revitalization of Lavaca and transformed it into one of the city’s most desirable residential neighborhoods.
