Koontz McCombs Announces CityVista Development in San Antonio
By Anca Gagiuc, Associate Editor
CityVista, a new Class A community of 141 units, will break ground in July on one of the last lots available in the 281/Hildebrand Area, Koontz McCombs announced in a release. The estimated cost for the project is $20 million and the completion date is set for December 2014.
Next to Trinity University and the University of Incarnate Word, the site is one of the highest elevations in the city of San Antonio, a feature that promises spectacular views of downtown, a natural plus to integrate seamlessly with the planned luxury amenities. A five-story building with brick and stucco exterior is projected to blend with the surrounding area under the signature of Houston-based Wallace Garcia Wilson Architects.
“CityVista will be a jewel-box development,” announced Bart Koontz, president & CEO. “It will include a luxury clubhouse, recreation and fitness facilities, and multiple courtyard areas, including a really spectacular rooftop area featuring an amazing view of the city. The flats will have all the amenities of a high-end condominium complex without the commitment involved in purchasing a home. We see a market for this, as San Antonio is attracting more young professionals who want to live in the city where they work and play but don’t necessarily want to make a home purchasing decision yet.”
An Internet café and a resort-style swimming pool are included in the amenity package, and the interior will feature stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, gourmet island kitchens, nine-foot ceilings, crown moldings and oversize walk-in closets. The units will be available with one, two and three bedrooms, ranging in size from 656 square feet to 1,600 square feet. Prices will vary from $1,240 to $3,000 per month.
