Weston Urban has started construction on what will be one of the tallest buildings in the downtown San Antonio skyline. The company broke ground on 300 Main, a 354-unit luxury apartment tower that’s expected to be completed in 2024.
The developer tapped Rogers-O’Brien Construction to build the community, while Page Architecture is the project’s architect of record. According to Rogers-O’Brien Construction, 300 Main is expected to be the third tallest building in downtown San Antonio.
The 32-story luxury apartment tower will reach approximately 400 feet and total roughly 696,000 square feet. The property will feature two amenity decks, a fitness center, a six-story parking garage and roughly 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The developer hasn’t disclosed any details on the unit sizes or floorplans, but public records showed that the units will range from 535 to 2,000 square feet.
Located in the city’s downtown tech district, 300 Main is a short distance away from several attractions, like The Alamo, SEA LIFE San Antonio and Tower of the Americas and the downtown’s many restaurant and retail options. Residents also have nearby access to Interstates 10 and 35, connecting them to Austin and Houston.
GETTING INTO GROUND-UP PROJECTS
In San Antonio, Weston Urban is more known for its projects that restore and preserve historic buildings while redeveloping the interiors into modern office settings. With 300 Main, the company is expanding outside its typical project type by pursuing a ground-up residential building.
Similarly, Rogers-O’Brien Construction doesn’t have any San Antonio projects in its development portfolio, but has several projects under its belt in other nearby Texas cities. The construction company is currently working on the 206-unit Novel Turtle Creek in Dallas and a 284-unit student housing project in the University of Texas’ West Campus in Austin. A few months ago, Rogers-O’Brien was also tapped to construct an 802-bed student housing community in College Station, Texas, near Texas A&M University.
