Weeks after a construction permit was filed signaling that Weston Urban was ready to break ground on its new 16-story apartment tower, updated designs were approved by the Historic and Design Review Commission on Wednesday, August 3.

The designs in HDRC agenda documents show a now 16-story tower at 332 W Commerce St., San Antonio, TX 78207, where the historic Continental Hotel building sits. Weston Urban intends to purchase the property between the Continental and neighboring Arana building from the city to build the mixed used residential development containing offices, groundfloor retail, creative lofts, and a publicly used parking garage.

The apartments will have a sky terrace and pool overlooking the parking garage.

The first five floors of the new building will be used for a parking garage and the remaining 11 floors will have 255 residential units. There is also a structure listed as an “amenities building” and what appears to be a pool at the top of the parking garage. 

We have a new look at Weston Urban's 16-story residential tower that will be built on top of the old Continental Hotel.
