Project Title:  Univision Plaza
Studio I, Fall 2008
Roberto Rodriguez Studio

 

The design called “The New Univision Plaza” consists in the relocation and a new square footage area addition that goes up to the corner intersection of Durango Blvd. and St. Mary Street. The new concept incorporates the tower of communications and the building structure as a unique building in such a way that the tensile strings that support the tower embrace the building structure, as well as adding a new retail along the river line including restaurants, bookstore, Spa and the like. The Univision building will be relocated facing the Durango and St. Mary’s intersection. This new arrangement of the Univision headquarters will provide a new corporative image that includes an open Plaza that together with communications tower will create an iconic structure that will act as a magnet for southern downtown San Antonio.
