Cadence McShane to Renovate Historic Granada Homes Apartments in San Antonio

by Jeff Shaw

SAN ANTONIO — Cadence McShane Construction Co. has started renovations on the 12-story Granada Homes Senior Living Apartments, an age-restricted, low-income seniors housing property located on the River Walk in San Antonio.

The project will involve a complete revitalization of the 249-unit building, originally built in 1928.

Renovations will include a restoration of levels one and 15 per historic guidelines to include updated unit amenities such as countertops and appliances, 16 new apartment units, and community leasing and amenity space. Exterior improvements will also be made to the ground floor to restore historic, character-defining features.

The building will remain occupied during the rehabilitation with current residents moving to a renovated unit upon completion. When the renovations are complete, the riverfront common areas will look almost exactly as they did in 1928 when the building originally opened, according to Cadence McShane. The project will also include a complete overhaul of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.

CREO Architects will serve as project architect. Merchants Capital and the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) are providing financing to the project. Completion of the renovations is slated for late 2022.
