Premier to Partner With Blueprint Hospitality to Transform Historic Office Building Into San Antonio Hotel

USA, Dallas, Texas. June 23, 2022

Premier, an end-to-end architecture, design, procurement, and capital management firm, is pleased to announce that the firm will lead the redevelopment and conversion of the former CPS Energy headquarters to a hotel property in San Antonio. In partnership with Blueprint Hospitality, Premier will spearhead the project from design to completion using their expertise and full suite of services, including interior design, architecture, procurement, project management, and capital management for the historic conversion.

"We are excited to be partnering with Blueprint once again for this new project in San Antonio," said Hector Sanchez, CEO of Premier. "With a primary location within one of the most visited places in all of Texas, we have a great opportunity to provide guests with a memorable experience and world-class design."

Located along the River Walk in downtown San Antonio and within close proximity to attractions like the Henry B. González Convention Center, Premier will breathe new life into the 211,350- square-foot, 10-story building, which is a designated historic landmark. Premier will leverage its rich industry know-how of hospitality renovations and ground-up development projects to create hotel interiors and programming fit for visitors to San Antonio.

"Working with Premier on another project seemed like the obvious choice to make," said Kunal Mody, CEO of Blueprint Hospitality. "With the great work they are completing at the Le Meridien in Fort Worth, Blueprint is so excited to see how this hotel will shine in San Antonio."

Blueprint specializes in converting historic buildings and purchased the 10-story building at 145 Navarro Street along with the city-owned utility's interest in the Tower Life building parking garage last month. The conversion is slated to begin in 2023 and will be a hub for out of town guests and locals to gather.

Hotel Human Resources: The Great Resignation


Hotels have always struggled with the task of attracting and retaining qualified employees. At any given moment, hotels are consistently understaffed which makes providing quality guest services a persistent challenge. Additionally, as a consequence of the pandemic, there has been a mass exodus of workers who left their employers and haven't returned. This phenomenon has become known as the Great Resignation. In one month alone last year, over 900,000 employees left hospitality jobs, affecting all areas of operations including frontline workers,  restaurant and housekeeping staff, and hotel management. To overcome these challenges, Human Resource departments are implementing a variety of solutions. First, they are reassessing their wage and benefits guidelines in an effort to become more competitive. They are also leveraging digital technology to attract and retain talent, and to improve the employee experience. The goal is to centralize communications, enhance employee engagement, empower independent decision-making, and expand educational opportunities. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these critical employment issues in their respective departments.
