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.

Architecture & Design: Welcome Home


Hotels are still very concerned about adhering to all required sanitation protocols but as the crisis wanes, they are also being relied upon to provide a space to escape and retreat in comfort. To satisfy this need, many new design trends are emerging. One such trend seeks to cultivate an environment that is comparable to the warmth and coziness  a traveler might have in their home. Lobbies are being reconfigured to resemble a family living room. For example, one leading hotel chain provides an off-lobby common area where four separate video game stations and two video games tables are furnished - all free of charge to play. Another trend is to replace traditional business centers with co-working spaces  where the lines between working and social interaction are often blurred. Finally, recognizing the impact of social media, hotels are designing specific areas to facilitate picture perfect moments (think Instagram). These are just some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
