12welve 2wenty1 Broadway
Let's start off our tour at 12welve 2wenty1, a hot address that is kissed by the San Antonio River. For years the iron bones of this structure lay bare and abandoned at the intersection of Broadway, I-37 and I-35. But take a look at it now. It's an industrial haven of homes modeled perfectly for the urban lifestyle. Polished concrete floors—and for the most part raw concrete walls and 10 1/2-feet ceilings — keep the lines clean and the palette promising. Leasing agent, Victoria Haring, calls it an "urban compound" in a "cultural arts district." Club house and gym views overlook the downtown San Antonio skyline, the San Antonio River and the San Antonio Museum of Art.
Less than two years old, 12welve 2wenty1's 307 units range from studios at $710 to 2 bedroom units at $2,500. Assigned parking for each bedroom with guest parking on the fifth floor and along the streets, where you'll also find a dog park. There are plans to develop a community garden for residents lucky enough to inhabit 12welve 2wenty1. A bike-share station sits right outside the doors and Haring says food trucks also have a regular spot.
