Printer-friendly versionDownload Project Profile

The Plaza de Armas building, which was built in 1865, is getting an $8.4 million dollar renovation, which was approved by the city of San Antonio. Marek is teamed up T.S. Byrne Construction Services for this historic makeover of epic proportions.

The goal of this building, which is located next to the Spanish Governor’s Palace, is to put the four interconnected structures that make up this building back into use. Those structures make up 41,000 square feet of useable space. The city would like to see the building used for retail and office space, an art gallery, a restaurant, and a news station.

Some of the major renovations that are being done to the structure include a new roof, new heating and air-conditioning systems, as well as the framing of the office, retail, and restaurant space.

Blending the historic values with a new twist is something that has been trending in San Antonio.
