SAN ANTONIO – Editor’s note: This story was published through a partnership between the San Antonio Business Journal and KSAT.
H-E-B plans to build a 10-level parking garage adjacent to its headquarters campus with 10,000 square feet of ground-floor office space, according to documents submitted to the San Antonio Historic and Design Review Commission.
Architectural documents by San Antonio-based Ford, Powell and Carson Inc. show renderings and drawings of the structure at 641 S. Flores St., to be built next to the grocer’s three-story culinary school.
The garage will accommodate 928 vehicles and include a pedestrian bridge across South Flores connecting it to the rest of H-E-B's campus. Administrative offices will be accessible from the street level.
The HDRC approved the project July 1 with several staff stipulations, including that all storefront glass be transparent with “glazing that contributes to a warm, inviting environment” and that the applicant submit information to staff on the lighting of the garage and bridge.
