Developers planning and eventually building the 23-story Frost Tower at 111 W. Houston St. in downtown San Antonio obtained final design approval from the city’s Historic Design and Review Commission. The HDRC approved initial designs in summer 2017.
Dirt work is underway on the site of the $100 million development, and the tower is expected to begin going vertical in early summer 2017. The development is a joint venture between Weston Urban, KDC and TRT Holdings Inc. Frost Bank already leased 250,000 square feet of the 460,000-square-foot tower.
The tower had been on HDRC’s consent agenda, until a citizen was concerned about the tower’s design, prompting Weston Urban’s Randy Smith to respond with a presentation about how the development would work with downtown. Smith told the San Antonio Business Journal that the building will be “a lynchpin in a larger revitalization for the northwest quadrant of downtown.”
