The city of San Antonio is taking another look at a proposed townhome project on the near East Side. The Historic and Design Review Commission was scheduled to meet this month to consider conceptual approval of a 24-unit development on a property bound by North Cherry, Center and North Swiss streets.
Ricardo Turrubiates, a project manager at Terramark Urban Homes, has been representing K/T TX Holding, the property owner, in this endeavor. Terramark first announced plans for what was called City Center Lofts in early 2016, but there had been concerns that the overall property is rather compact for the envisioned development.
The original plans also called for much of the development to contain surface parking, as well as off-site parallel parking. The revised plans involve reconfigurations for parking and the residential buildings. According to a report from , there would be parking spaces in garages beneath each residential unit. The units will be enclosed in six rows of townhouses. The project would be developed in three phases in an area that is seeing plenty of public and private redevelopment.
However, staff with the Office of Historic Preservation said they could not recommend conceptual approval of the revised plan unless the developers come forward with more information on such aspects as building heights, massing or facade arrangement.
