The recently cleared plot of land at the intersection of West Guenther and South Flores will soon feature an apartment development, The Viceroy. I drive by this intersection almost daily as my office is located just a few blocks south at the intersection of Cevallos and South Flores. I’ll enjoy watching this project go up as much as I’m enjoying watching Steel House Lofts going up now. The Viceroy, Steel House Lofts, and Cevallos Lofts will greatly increase the density in the area and bring with them new amenities for the neighborhood. The developer of The Viceroy, Landbridge Partners, recently successfully rezoned the old Lone Star Brewery. Keep your eyes on my post and I’ll update as I learn more about the plans for the brewery.
***UPDATE*** The new name for the location is The 1010. I’ve added them to my list of Places to Rent in Downtown and Southtown.
Below is the recent story run in The Express-News. The link to the story is also at the bottom of the post.
The Viceroy on the way to King William area
By Valentino Lucio Wednesday, February 22, 2012
Historically, every king needed a viceroy.
So it’s appropriate that the King William area welcomes The Viceroy, a mixed-used development in the Southtown neighborhood that broke ground on Tuesday at the corner of West Guenther and South Flores streets.
The 48,000-square-foot building will have about 5,800 square feet of commercial space on the first floor, which could be used as light office or retail space, said Sunshine Thacker, the owner of Landbridge Partners, the project’s developer.
