Share Article

Luxury boutique hotel will open in 2014 as part of Pearl, a mixed-use development in downtown San Antonio.

'Woodbine’s experience with the Pearl site and other successful mixed-use developments is an excellent match for the all-star team assembled for the Pearl hotel project,' said John Scovell, Woodbine president and CEO.

Woodbine Development Corporation has been engaged to manage the development of a 146-room luxury boutique hotel that will open next year as part of Pearl, the 22-acre, mixed-use development surrounding the historic Pearl Brewery site in downtown San Antonio.

Also on the hotel design team is New York City-based Roman & Williams Buildings and Interiors, known for its work on The Ace Hotel NYC and The Standard Highline, among other properties. THREE: Living Architecture of Dallas is architect of record for the project, and Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will operate the hotel and associated restaurant.

“Woodbine’s experience with the Pearl site and other successful mixed-use developments is an excellent match for the all-star team assembled for the Pearl hotel project,” said John Scovell, Woodbine president and CEO. “We have no doubt the team will deliver a hotel worthy of this landmark and popular River Walk destination.” Opening is slated for fall 2014.

Situated on the site of the original Pearl Brewery in San Antonio, the hotel will occupy the former brewhouse, a 119-year-old structure, as well as a new six-story tower that will be built next to the brewhouse, Pearl amphitheater and San Antonio River. Project plans also include two restaurants; a roof-top pool; river-facing venue space; and a cocktail bar.

Woodbine’s involvement with the Pearl site includes managing development of the Pearl Parkway project, 157,000 square feet of mixed-use space. Pearl is a culinary and cultural gathering place on the banks of the San Antonio River that also includes a Culinary Institute of America campus, shops, restaurants, offices and multifamily residential options.
