G.J. Sutton site in downtown San Antonio hits the market

JLL selected to lead marketing, sale of two tracts totaling 5.9 acres

August 06, 2020

SAN ANTONIO, August 6, 2020 – JLL announced today the firm has been selected to lead the marketing and sales effort for the G.J. Sutton site in downtown San Antonio. The offering consists of two land parcels encompassing 5.9 acres located at 303 N Center Street and 715 E Crockett Street.

Named for Garlington Jerome Sutton, the first black official from San Antonio elected to the Texas House of Representatives, the G.J. Sutton complex was acquired by The State of Texas in 1975. The building on the property was demolished last August. Per Texas House Bill 2944, which required the sale of the state-owned property, any newly constructed property must retain the name “G.J. Sutton.” 

The site is within walking distance to St. Paul Square, the Alamodome and Hemisfair Park, and within a 10-minute drive or less from popular destinations like the King William District, Pearl District and Alamo Quarry.

JLL’s Robert Arzola, Simmi Jaggi, Elizabeth Clampitt and John Taylor are leading the sales effort on behalf of the Texas General Land Office.

“The site presents a prime development opportunity in the city’s emerging urban core that is experiencing a resurgence of growth from residents and companies alike who are choosing to live and work downtown,” said Arzola.

For additional information regarding the site, please contact Robert Arzola at +1 210 481 3300.
