Grocery chain H-E-B plans to build a 10-level parking garage adjacent to its headquarters campus with 10,000 square feet of ground-floor office space, according to documents submitted to the San Antonio Historic and Design Review Commission (HRDC).
Architectural documents by San Antonio-based Ford, Powell and Carson show renderings and drawings of the structure at 641 S. Flores St., to be built next to the grocer’s three-story culinary school.
The garage will accommodate 928 vehicles and include a pedestrian bridge across South Flores connecting it to the rest of H-E-B’s campus. Administrative offices will be accessible from street level.
The 11-member HDRC approved the project July 1 with several stipulations. They included a requirement that all storefront glass be transparent with “glazing that contributes to a warm, inviting environment” and that H-E-B submit information to staff on the lighting of the garage and bridge, the San Antonio Business Journal reported.
