Texas set to buy 3 buildings near Alamo amid revamp project

🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The state has agreed to buy three buildings near the Alamo as part of a revamp of the historic shrine and its surrounding plaza in downtown San Antonio.

General Land Office spokeswoman Brittany Eck said Monday that the agency expects to close on the Woolworth, Crockett, and Palace buildings by the end of the year, pending inspections.

Land Commissioner George P. Bush’s office is teaming with San Antonio to create a master plan to makeover the Alamo. Set to be ready next year, the plan is costing the city $1 million, with Bush’s office covering additional costs.

Eck said buying the buildings should be a “significant consideration in the long-term master planning process,” though nothing will change immediately.

She wouldn’t speculate on the buildings’ future use, at least for now.
