Is this what the mysterious new 6-story concrete-frame mixed-use building going up behind the 11th St. Someburger in the Heights is supposed to look like? Sort of, but not exactly. The rendering of the project above (and a whole bunch more, below), found on the website of ZDA Architecture in San Antonio, shows a decked-out version of the more boxy structure that’s pictured on this new sign and that showed up on the corner of Studewood and 11th 1/2 St. yesterday:
The stripped-down, cast-stone-lintel-free version of the project shown on the sign could be what the developers ended up with after several rounds of cost-cutting and bank-balance checking. But a source tells Swamplot that there will likely be “slight modifications” to the design shown in that image as well. Meanwhile, several rounds of “unapproved” earlier proposals for the building are still on display on the architect’s website:
And what about the pool on top? Is it still in the project?
Only a few more stories to go before we find out.
