Pearl Koehler Mixed-Use Garage/Retail/Residential Building
74,000 SF | San Antonio, TX
This mixed-use building is in the heart of the Pearl Brewery Development adjacent to the San Antonio River. The building contains the Culinary Institute of America, 8 loft apartments and lease space for both retail, office and restaurant uses. In addition, the building contains a 500-car parking garage which is completely hidden from view.
The Koehler Garage design complies with two critical goals. The first was to provide a centralized loading/receiving, trash/recycling, paring and cooling plant for the next phase of buildings to come online. The second goal was to create a building that is uniquely “Pearl” while not competing with the historical buildings within the complex. All facades are viewed as front facades and are articulated to greet patrons and lead them through the complex.

Pearl “Lab” Office Building

Three facades provide canopies and colonnades creating covered retail shopping and outdoor dining. The fourth façade creates an intimate court used for outdoor events and al fresco dining. Upper floors offer views of historic buildings, courtyards, and urban densities. Standard Pearl elements included increased density, regional materials, and large overhangs.
