WiA/HR: Aurora Tour

THIS TOUR IS NOW SOLD OUT

The Aurora Apartments is an existing historic 11-story high rise in Tobin Hill. Built in the 1920s as a luxury hotel, The Aurora was the place where the Hollywood Elite stayed while visiting San Antonio. In the early 1980s, the hotel rooms were converted to 105 apartment units primarily for low-income seniors. While many conversions have been made over the years, the exterior and main lobby and units still retain features from a blend of Spanish Colonial Revival, Beaux Arts, Art Deco, and Gothic Revival influences.

Led by Alamo Architects, the current renovation is the revitalization of buildings systems and finishes. The project utilizes Low Income Housing Tax Credits as well as State and Federal Historic Tax Credits.

While on the tour, we will visit the lobby and first floor amenity spaces, and a typical unit (if available). We will finish the tour with a view from the rooftop and an up-close look at the ornamental cast stone elements.
