A Sunday afternoon gathering at Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum acknowledged and documented the adoption of the work of the late Chuck Ramirez as the latest inductee to the public art collection of H-E-B.
The evolving design for H-E-B’s downtown grocery store was approved Wednesday by the Historic Design and Review Commission: Flores Market has expanded in size and features a less-visible fuel station at the expense of connectivity to the adjacent Commander’s House Park.
After two years to the date, City officials say, the South Alamo Street bridge will finally reopen at the end of October.
When Mayor Julián Castro removed a section of chain link separating the Commander’s House from South Flores Street on Friday, it marked the symbolic start of construction of the $100 million expansion of the H-E-B corporate headquarters at the historic Arsenal.
An update to the Arsenal and South Flores Streets phase of construction in the downtown H-E-B project, including a wider driveway into the Commander’s House property, was approved during a Thursday, June 18 Historical Design and Review Commission meeting.
When we move later this year into a house we are building on East Arsenal Street, we’ll end our Empty Nest experiment as renters and return to the world of home mortgages, property taxes, and utility bills.
If San Antonio were a stock market, 2013 would go down as a bull market with many winners and relatively few losers.
After an especially passionate citizens to be heard session, City Council voted in favor of closing the block of South Main Avenue that dissects H-E-B’s property and a development agreement for the grocery chain’s proposed 10,000 square foot store and improvements to surrounding public streets.
Passionate supporters and opponents of H-E-B’s request to close and incorporate a block of South Main Avenue into the grocery chain’s private headquarters were unsurprised by the Planning Commission’s unanimous approval of the request Wednesday afternoon.
More than sixty years ago, the San Antonio City Council, encouraged by politicians and “The South Siders” citizens group, voted to open South Main Avenue through the Arsenal to relieve traffic congestion in the area.
