H-E-B Headquarters Gets an Update with Added Parking Structure and Sky Bridge
SAN ANTONIO, TX - With everything lined up and ready to go, H-E-B is now playing the waiting game, as it anticipates the Historic and Design Review Commission’s approval of a six-story parking garage and attached sky bridge across E. César Chávez Boulevard in downtown San Antonio. When completed, the bridge will link the parking structure with the company’s corporate headquarters.
According to an HDRC agenda item, the garage will be capable of housing up to 750 vehicles and will feature façade screening, a roof-top shading trellis, LED lighting, landscaping elements, and new fencing, as reported by The San Antonio Business Journal.
The current positioning of the parking lot is a flat, 70,000-square-foot area and sits at 506 S. Main Ave. or 415 Dwyer Ave. The space was last appraised at $5.3 million by Bexar County Appraisal District. And the project was planned by Ford, Powell, & Carson Inc., a local firm.
H-E-B has committed to investing $100 million into San Antonio’s downtown, but while estimates are in the $1 million ballpark range, it is still unclear how much of that investment will be going towards this specific project. And on top of this massive undertaking, the grocery chain also has a parking lot at 404 S. Flores St. in the works. This other parking lot is a precautionary measure for overflow parking while the plans are fleshed out and built upon for the coming larger structure, explained Dya Campos, the company’s Director of Governmental and Public Affairs, in the same article.
As the million dollar project makes headway this coming January, with an April due date on the horizon, how will this project affect H-E-B’s headquarters and the business at large? AndNowUKnow will keep you up-to-date with the latest.
