San Antonio—A 30-story luxury apartment tower will rise along the River Walk, adding to the city’s five-year-old Decade of Downtown initiative to revive the city’s center.
Councilman Roberto C. Trevino stated, “We look forward to a great collaborative opportunity with JMJ Development to further add to the unique skyline of San Antonio. We welcome the thoughtful approach that JMJ Development is taking to jobs, architecture and community input.”
JMJ Development of Dallas plans to break ground this summer on the tower, dubbed JMJ Towers River Walk; it will be one of the tallest additions to the San Antonio skyline. The high-rise will consist of 201 luxury apartments featuring upscale amenities, technology and convenience, as well as extravagant restaurants and retail space.
“This is the luxury development that San Antonio has yearned for and long deserved. The city’s rapid growth via an increasingly sophisticated and often international clientele has created a strong demand for luxury living on the highly sought-after River Walk. We intend to meet this demand by infusing luxury living with amazing technology and amenities that simply have not been available before in this thriving market. Think ‘the Jetsons come to the River Walk!’,” said Tim Barton, CEO of JMJ Development. “Our experience with luxury development in other prime locations in the U.S. and around the world promises to make JMJ Towers a San Antonio icon. JMJ Development is pleased to be supported by Rick Brendler of B & A Architects Inc.”
The tower will be located at 112-120 Villita St., conveniently placed within walking distance of the city’s many businesses, courts, and convention center, as well as its historical, dining and tourist attractions. The development will feature studio, one- and two-bedroom units, including top-floor penthouses with amenities such as a hi-tech automated parking system, high-end fitness area and swimming pool with connecting clubhouse.
