The Commerce Building

A registered National Historic Place built in 1902 originally the Alamo National Bank building.  At Harris Bay what we seek to do is find properties that are extremely well located, irreplaceable properties, 20th century properties that we can transform for the 21st century. The Commerce Building is a unique asset, it is incredibly well-located building in the Heart of San Antonio with the bones and architecture that could be transformed to make it a true Trophy San Antonio Building.

The objective was clear to us that with capital improvements we could take a dated dark interior and update the interior finishes with elegant and modern design that would be timeless. Opening up floor plans for creative office space and investing into those improvements we could improve occupancy, rates and the life of the building.
