April 30, 2019

SAN ANTONIO, May 1, 2019 – Austin-based CSW Development broke ground today on their new 19-acre retail concept, La Cantera Heights, a joint venture with USAA Real Estate. This unique retail project in northwest San Antonio will focus on core uses such as unique personality-driven restaurant and service concepts, many of which will be first-time entries to the market. When completed, the development will encompass both the Northwest and Southwest tracts off La Cantera Parkway and IH-10.

“This retail community is destined to become the premier choice for those seeking the modern ideal of living, working, playing, shopping, dining and relaxing in one breathtaking place,” said Todd Wallace, CSW Development CEO. “Centered in the heart of luxury retail, entertainment, education and prominent employers, La Cantera Heights will offer a regional draw from the affluent suburbs of North San Antonio and a unique experience unlike anything else in the region.”

The immediate trade area for La Cantera Heights includes over 130,000 nearby residents and a daytime population of over 75,200 with many of the city’s major employers located nearby.

JLL ​Senior Vice President Barry Haydon, Vice President Guyla Sineni and Senior Associate Jonathan Haag are leading marketing and leasing efforts for La Cantera Heights.

The current roster of retailers includes Thirsty Lion, La Panaderia and Burgerim.

“CSW Development is creating a unique retail experience within this prominent and growing area of San Antonio,” said Haydon. “La Cantera Heights’ accessibility and location makes it perfectly suited for perspective retailers interested in joining a platform of best-in-class shops and restaurants in a convenient setting that promotes community interaction while using architectural features that highlight the outdoor characteristics of the site.”

Shop space is expected to be delivered in February of 2020 with store openings set for Summer 2020.

The architect for the project is Alamo Architects and the general contractor is Metropolitan Construction.
