New information on the redevelopment of Rivercenter Mall.

The redevelopment of Rivercenter Mall will work in three phases. Phase I calls for exterior changes/upgrades, integration of several five star restaurants such as: Capital Grill, Oceanaire, and Cantina Laredo as well as the addition of Lucky Strike Lanes. Phase II will bring the Joske’s building back to its original form by uncovering the windows and ornate brick front. Phase III will bring a luxury hotel (Ritz Carlton) to replace the parking garage on Commerce Street and expand the parking structure on Crockett Street.

Great, now it'll blend in with all the other brown buildings downtown

Nice to see some upscale restaurants being added though.

All the brown buildings make the statue(art piece?) stand out on the island across from Rivercenter Mall (Joske's corner).
And St. Joske's Church will have some class neighbors instead of a parking garage.
Some good, some bad(or not so good).
San Antonio is growing up.

I do love the idea of turning that garage into a hotel. I think we can definitely start calling that area the "hotel district" of downtown (or is it already called that?)

Hanging outside or inside? Lucky Strikes is a very expensive (for a bowling alley) place. They are transforming Rivercenter Mall from a tourist trap mall to a upscale highend mall.

I've been to Lucky Strikes and they are awesome. I'm talking about the loitering that will be going on inside that place. I remember I made the mistake of seeing a movie at the RiverCenter on a Saturday night many years ago. Lets just say there was a lot of shady characters in the place.

Well that's because of what the mall currently is, a middle class touristy mall. That type of mall is the type of place little wannabes from the surround inner city areas love to go hang around.

The new owner of Rivercenter Mall is transforming the mall, to be more like La Cantera but even more upscale with the restaurants and hotel.

Sounds good. It really is a nice location but every time I was there it was pretty dead. With new owners and the explosion of downtown condos/apartments going up, I'm sure they are going to do very well.
