Universal Services Group

New Dream Hotel to Anchor Mixed-Use Riverwalk Development

Universal Services Group, the developer behind the recently completed Thompson Hotel and Arts Residences, reached an agreement in December with the City of San Antonio that paves the way for a $400 million development in the center city. Construction on the Riverplace development on five parcels of land on both sides of the San Antonio River Walk is expected to start in 2022. The mixed-use development will include a multi-family residential property, a condominium, and an office building, all about 20 stories in height, with retail components and garage parking. The development will be anchored by a Dream Hotel and another hotel designed for business travelers. A tech-oriented office building is also planned along with a condominium.

Historic Aztec Theatre Owner Renovated Building for Office Tenants

More than 30,000 square feet of space at the Aztec Theatre is ready for a single tenant or multiple users to finish out. In addition to renovating the offices, the project team added a 1,400-square-foot terrace above Crockett Street overlooking the River Walk. The terrace — which the theater's operator Live Nation plans to operate as an outdoor bar, according to the building owner — connects to the theater and the sidewalk. Sam Panchevre, the owner of Sam's Burger Joint, acquired the 112,000-square-foot building in 2014. Local companies Guido Construction and Overland Partners were involved in the project.
