The latest step in the development of La Cantera is finally taking shape — 12 years following its initial announcement.
Sundt Construction, Inc. has started the first phase of construction at the La Cantera Town Center, a 1.8 million-square-foot mixed-use development by USAA Real Estate in northwest San Antonio near Loop 1604 and I-10. Sundt is involved in several other projects locally, including the San Pedro Creek Improvements, the Canopy by Hilton and the CPS Energy headquarters.
The project was originally announced by the real estate company in 2008. The Express-News reported USAA Real Estate filed county paperwork in 2016 to establish a master plan for the community and formed the nonprofit La Cantera Town Center Owners Association Inc.
The Town Center will include boutique hotels, residences and office space, according to the project’s website. Each mixed-use site on the property will range from two to 25 acres.
The next phase of the Residences at La Cantera being developed on the property by Cambridge Development and USAA Real Estate will be a senior-living community with 100 units, according to ApartmentData.com research. Celeste, an Alliance Residential project, is a four-story apartment complex with units from roughly $1,000 to $3,000 already built directly west of the site.
Sundt’s construction work will include two parks and an outdoor amphitheater as well as a trail system to connect the project to the Leon Creek Greenway trail system, La Cantera Parkway, La Cantera mall and the La Cantera resort. One park on the property will be oriented to nature and social gatherings while the other will be a dog park.
