The Power of Preservation San Antonio names Hemisfair’s Historic Homes project the Best Preservation Project of 2018!
Hemisfair’s Master Plan calls for 21 historic structures at Hemisfair to be re-purposed for commercial and cultural uses, housing cafés and shops where feasible, as well as galleries and arts workshops. By preserving these historic structures and carefully integrating them with new development, Hemisfair will be an authentic and vibrant mix of San Antonio’s past, present and future.
“We no longer build like we did in the 1800’s, and that is one reason to preserve the historic jewels that we have at Hemisfair. But to me what is more important is that the hands that built these structures are the hands that built our community and influenced our culture. We will breathe new life into these buildings so that we can bring new life to Hemisfair, and by extension new life to San Antonio.” – Andres Andujar, CEO, Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corporation
