Balcones Heights Lofts
Rising above the urban San Antonio landscape, the City of Balcones Heights – located on top of the southern Los Balcones escarpment – has a rich history. In the 1930’s, developments to the south of the Balcones Heights boundaries enticed ever-optimistic developers to find home sites in the hills just above the newly established Jefferson Heights Neighborhood. As the architecture of Jefferson High School established the tone of the Spanish Colonial Revival for Jefferson Heights, the Balcones Heights area was middle ground that opened the frontier of new architectural development during a time when the Mid-Century Modern movement was highly influential. Balcones Heights exhibits some of the finest examples of historically significant Mid-Century Modern architectural developments in South Texas.
This Urban in-fill mixed-use development centrally located in Balcones Heights has a modern twist to the classic mid-century modern architecture unique to this location. Designed for national developer NRP GROUP, the project includes retail with public access, amenities for the development use and both market rate and tax credit living units to meet the development needs of the city.
