With the explosion of the revitalization of San Antonio’s downtown, SoFlo has become the latest addition to the growing quest for urban living. Located between Southtown proper and the Lone Star districts, the area already has seen significant rejuvenation and is poised for an upsurge of growth with development and completion of the San Pedro Creek Culture Park project. With walking, biking, scooters, and Ubers, residents are just blocks away from some of the city’s best parks, galleries, restaurants and boutiques.

San Pedro Creek Culture Park

While focusing on the creek’s natural beauty, the park combines public art, architectural design, local craft, and historic preservation with engineering, ecosystem restoration, and native landscaping. A four-phased project, the park will span 2.2 miles through downtown and will add four miles of walking trails and 11 acres of landscaping. Once fully complete, the San Pedro Creek Culture Park is expected to spur a $1.5 billion economic impact by creating 2,100 new housing units, 1,428 new downtown employees, 7,300 new downtown residents, and a 150 percent increase in new property value.
