Floodgate Celebrates Top Out Milestone in Downtown San Antonio
May 18, 2022 | Press Releases
San Antonio, TX – Designed by award-winning Austin-based firm Rhode Partners, Floodgate will celebrate its topping out on May 19, 2022. Located on San Antonio’s historic River Walk, the 100,000 sf mixed-use project is anticipated to open Spring 2023.
Floodgate is a uniquely modern 17-story building with significant ground floor restaurant space fronting the River Walk and 63 apartment units in the upper tower floors. Designed for a dense urban site, the residential tower employs varying asymmetrical floor plates within three stacked tiers, responding to unique views from the site and providing optimal sunlight to the River Walk below.
The lower two levels of the building feature a residential lobby and a two-level restaurant space with outdoor dining along the River Walk. A fully autonomous vehicle parking system, housed on two levels above the ground floor, will be the first implementation of this technology in Texas. A residential amenity deck with a spa pool and pet lawn is located on the fourth level with expansive views of the urban waterway below.
Responding to the impressive location, the design acknowledges and reinforces the historic context with contemporary architecture. The first four levels of the building relate to the adjacent nineteenth century buildings in both materiality and scale. This deference to historical context is exemplified by the recovery and reincorporation of the original stone floodwall into the project at its original location.
Founding Partner Brett Rhode remarks, “Rhode Partners is honored to be part of a great team working to create such a special building on the historic River Walk. We are especially grateful to our client for being supportive of forward-looking architecture. It is our hope that this building will inspire and offer a meaningful contribution to the evolution of downtown San Antonio”.
Keller Henderson, President of Keller Henderson Interiors, adds “The entire Floodgate team is to be applauded for their foresight, perseverance, and the team work to realize this milestone achievement. We all share the same excitement for what the Floodgate will be as a residence, and addition to San Antonio’s dynamic downtown community.”
Roy Raines, President of Jordan Foster’s Building Group, comments “Jordan Foster Construction is proud of the progress our team made while overcoming some early obstacles. Being involved in a project such as this one, which is reenergizing the San Antonio River Walk, is especially exciting.”
