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.

Food & Beverage: Remarkably Resilient


In the wake of the devastation that disrupted every aspect of their operations, the hotel food & beverage industry is proceeding with cautious optimism and a measure of hope as it re-emerges from the pandemic's darker days. It is also bringing forward all the lessons learned from the challenges that were faced, and integrating them into their current, day-to-day operations. For example, new digital interfaces that minimize physical contact, including tableside ordering systems and QR code menus. Here to stay are also features such as packaged room service meals and cocktails; on-property, quick-service food options; a greater emphasis on outdoor dining and pop-up restaurants; gourmet home meal kits; live-streamed cooking classes; and virtual wine-tastings. Still, some challenges remain, such as coping with a persistent labor shortage and maintaining scrupulous sanitation standards. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to integrate these changes into their F&B operations as they rebound with a remarkable resiliency.
