RiverWalk Crossing Experiences Construction Delays

Phase Two of the RiverWalk Crossing project is now taking shape, although some unforeseen weather circumstances have slowed down the process a bit. Unusually wet weather conditions over the last few months have pushed the completed date to June, although it appears as if progress is starting to take shape.  Many construction companies have noted that the wet weather conditions are unlike any other they have experienced. In fact, many construction companies have said that it was one of the worse years for wet weather-related delays to date.

The phase two RiverWalk Crossing project, which will consist of two, 25,000-saquare-foot, mixed-use buildings that will house San Antonio downtown office spacewill be located at the Jenks retail center. The estimated cost of this two-building section will be $5.5 million. Despite the weather-related delays, major tenants are already lined up, including McDermott’s Grille, a restaurant and music venue and Midnight Rodeo, a country and western club chain. The upper floors of the two-building project will be devoted to San Antonio downtown office space.

The addition of San Antonio downtown office space will be a welcomed addition to this area, and is sure to bring in a multitude of tenants looking to take advantage of this prime area of the city. In addition, a 350-seat amphitheater will be a part of the project and will be similar in design to the current amphitheater in RiverWalk Crossing. Other changes expected soon include:

  • Construction has begun on the RiverWalk Apartments, a development by the TranAlliance Development Group. The 234 apartment units are expected to be finished this spring.
  • Calistoga Grill has opened up in the former location of Alehaus.
  • Twisted Tilt, a 6,000-square-foot bar and grill, will take the place of TKs 2 Asian Restaurant.
  • Blind Lemons, a bar with a blues theme, will open soon in the shopping center.
The RiverWalk is San Antonio’s most famed attraction, as it attracts millions of visitors each year. Just some of the attractions that draw visitors to the RiverWalk include:
  • San Antonio Zoo
  • The Alamo
  • San Antonio Botanical Garden
  • The Guenther House
  • King William Historic District
