The City of San Antonio, along with The NRP Group, The RK Group, The San Antonio Housing Trust, and other developers including Joeris Contractors, have revealed a long-awaited 85-acre redevelopment project in San Antonio’s East Side: The Red Berry Project.
The Red Berry Project includes: mixed income housing with a 330-unit multi-family apartment complex by The NRP Group, community space with a new trail connection to Salado Creek, a 74-year employer, The RK Group, that brings hundreds of jobs, and a beautiful revitalized lakeside wedding and event venue, The Red Berry Estate.
After a community-wide visioning process where East Side residents identified The Red Berry Project as a catalytic place they wanted to see remade into a mixed income and mixed-use development, The City of San Antonio and its development partners brought this deeply desired vision to life.
“We have realized the vision that the community has set forward,” explains The City of San Antonio Assistant City Manager Lori Houston. “This is a place where the community can come and enjoy. It is a place where you can live and work.”
The RK Group, a 74-year event and food/beverage provider established in San Antonio, built a 170,000 square-foot headquarters. The company also renovated a 1951 mansion into a luxury 15,000 square-foot lakeside event and wedding venue reimagined for spaciousness, with indoor and outdoor settings that serve events perfectly. For both properties, The RK Group partnered with Joeris for construction, Mac Chesney with Chesney Morales as the architect, and Casey Roy as the Interior Designer.
The NRP Group built a 330-unit multi-family apartment complex, Salado at Red Berry, with below-market rent using Porter Dillard as its architect.
The restoration of The Red Berry Mansion and surrounding property has created a development with synergy that for years to come will bring more economic development to an area that has not seen any in decades,” said The NRP Group’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships & Government Relations Debra Guerrero.
The San Antonio Housing Trust helped facilitate a partnership with all the entities involved to redevelop this 85-acre property.
The Red Berry Mansion area was a hidden gem for decades, and the completion of this large redevelopment celebrates a long-awaited community vision that will spur economic development and add a new, beautiful, lakeside space for San Antonio to enjoy.
