The Alamo Heights City Council voted 3-2 late Monday night in favor of a motion to modify plans for the controversial Alamo Heights Gateway Project.

Alamo Heights Councilman Bobby Rosenthal made the motion to modify the special use permit requested by the developer, Alamo Manhattan.  

The project was initially designed as a six-story complex with 210 high-end residential units but most residents were concerned with the size of the project.

Alamo Manhattan reduced the project's plans to 165 units and five stories, but the motion made Councilman Rosenthal called for an even smaller project at a maximum of four stories and 146 residential units.  

An email sent to KSAT News Monday night stated Alamo Manhattan had not agreed to the modifications and will review the decision, then determine their next steps.

Developers want to build the multifamily project with commercial space over an acre of trapezoid shaped space on Broadway Street and Austin Highway.
