Koontz McCombs eyes condo project
By Creighton A. Welch

Quote:
A San Antonio developer is hoping to build its second condo project on Hildebrand Avenue — this time on undeveloped hilltop land right across from Trinity University.

Koontz McCombs goes before the city’s Zoning Commission today requesting a change from single-family residential to multifamily zoning that would allow about 160 units on the 3.22-acre land at Hildebrand and Devine Road. The commission recommends approval of the change.

The story also says the project is years away and will not even begin development until The Broadway condos are finished in 18 months. Bummer! We need a few more mid-to-high rise developments going in now. There are a few under construction now, but not too many announced. Oh well, if Koontz-McCombs payed $4 million for the land I doubt this project gets cancelled (unless of of course zoning requests are denied due to opposition). I'd like to see much more high-rises built in Uptown San Antonio.

It WONT get cancelled. I worked for them for a while (not a happy time) - when it comes to money, that does NOT get wasted!!! I love driving past the condos going up on broadway. I pass them driving my daughter to school every day. I'm not sure why. . . I guess it's just nice to see that area progressing - San Antonio has a very "unfinished look" about it and I'm hoping that some of the projects I'm seeing will smooth out some "rough edges". (Not knocking SA. . I've been here my whole life! But I like change!)

Let's hope this one isn't bland like the Broardway and it actually faces the street. As for "unfinished" that's my favorite part about SA. Smooth out the Riverwalk a bit and it's Las Vegas.

For now, this project is referred to as the "Devine condominiums" after the street it is named after. Max height around 300 ft.
