HDRC Approves Plans for ‘Mercado Via’ on Houston Street

GrayStreet's next mixed use project.

GrayStreet’s next mixed use project.

The Historic and Design Review Commission (HDRC) unanimously approved plans Wednesday afternoon for several additions and modifications to the historic Grant and Kress buildings in downtown San Antonio. Local property owner and developer GrayStreet Partners will join the two buildings to create mixed-use office and retail space.

According to the application submitted to the HDRC, GrayStreet will add rooftop terraces, landscaping, and floor-to-ceiling windows on several walls of both buildings. Top-floor spaces currently used to house mechanical equipment will be converted into penthouses for lease.

The five-story, 43,592 sq. ft. Grant Building, which includes a basement and mezzanine, was constructed in 1935. It has been vacant since the Children’s Museum, now known as The DoSeum, closed in March 2015 and moved to its new location on Broadway Street.

New tenants are expected to include a tech company, a law firm, and a cybersecurity firm. The street-level retail would likely come in the form of a food hall, said GrayStreet Managing Partner Kevin Covey.

With the purchase of the two buildings, which was made public June 23, GrayStreet now owns the entire north side of the 300 block of East Houston Street.
