The Historic and Design Review Commission (HDRC) has advanced a project that will turn a cluster of historic buildings at East Houston and Soledad streets into space for hotel rooms and retail.
The last remaining evidence of some of these buildings can be glimpsed now, if only for a time now, as San Antonio readies for its Tricentennial.
The Historic and Design Review Commission approved the final design of an eight-story hotel on the River Walk.
A contractor sent debris from the historic Solo Serve building spilling into the downtown River Walk when a roof and wall collapsed after supporting structure was undermined Wednesday afternoon.
Demolition crews tore into the building Wednesday, making room for what will eventually be a nine-story hotel with a river-level restaurant.
