San Antonio will start implementing big plans for Hemisfair’s Civic Park this year and more are in the works for Tower Park.
About 30 representatives from coffee shops, a “cupcakery,” a bar, an apparel shop, and other local businesses attended an informational session Monday morning to check out leasing opportunities for two historic buildings in Hemisfair Park.
“What’s the return on investment?”
It’s a question that business leaders get asked all the time.
The five acres of developable land that lines South Alamo and East Market streets and Civic Park in Hemisfair’s master plan offer the highest visibility of all the spaces slated for redevelopment, more than 47 years after HemisFair ’68.
Curious about what kind of businesses could soon be located in Hemisfair Park? Hemisfair staff hosted a meeting at the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects on Thursday to answer questions from interested guests about the available spaces – three historic homes – at Hemisfair Park and the request for interest (RFI).
The City of San Antonio is now seeking proposals for Hemisfair Park’s first public-private partnership in Yanaguana Garden, a 4.1-acre play area and space offering modern amenities, outdoor recreation, parking and affordable housing for new tenants, all within walking distance of San Antonio’s downtown hotspots.
