The Alameda Theater Conservancy and Texas Public Radio selected Overland Partners and Martinez + Johnson to oversee renovation and design work for San Antonio’s downtown Alameda Theater. The city of San Antonio, along with Bexar County, La Familia Cortez, and the above-mentioned Texas Public Radio, have a plan in place to restore and re-open the theater on West Houston Street into a multimedia complex. Additionally, Texas Public Radio is planning to move its broadcast facilities and operational headquarters to the renovated complex, which is currently vacant.
The site’s renovation and restoration are expected to take approximately two years. The Conservancy, which, in 2017, entered into a long-term lease with the city for the site, is looking for a construction manager for the project.
The Alameda Theater was the largest movie theater dedicated to Spanish-language films and the performing arts when it opened in 1949. The city acquired the asset in 1994.
