The 210 Development Group pulled its St. John’s Seminary redevelopment item from San Antonio’s Historic Design and Review Commission meeting on June 7, 2017. The developer indicated that the reason for the item’s removal was to give the Office of Historic Preservation and the HDRC time to review roof modifications that would address foundation and drainage issues at the abandoned and boarded-up seminary and adjacent mission on Mission Road.
The HDRC approved 210 Development Group’s plan to renovate three historic buildings at the former seminary site, and to build seven new structures. The development would include a 228-unit, mixed-income apartment complex, and new offices and public meeting space for the Archdiocese of San Antonio, which owns the 11-acre tract.
The developer indicated it would need approval of a mansard-style roof design, because the foundations need to be raised to help the courtyards drain properly. Commissioners expect to hear the case on June 21, 2017.
