Henry Terrell Building: Renovations Planned for Mixed-Use

Plans have been submitted to the Historic and Design Review Committee to convert the Henry Terrell Building, located at 220 N. Alamo, into 10 time share apartments with ground floor retail and office space.  A Las Vegas investor purchased the building in May of 2013 from local developer Mitch McManus.  McManus most recently developed Casa Blanca Lofts along.  The former owner had plans to develop the Henry Terrell Building but cited issues with parking and high renovation costs.

Preliminary plans call for restoration of the façade, the addition of balconies, awnings, and an elevator.  Floor plans indicate one and two bedroom units with approximately 1,000 square feet of ground floor office space available.  Renovations are expected to be complete by the end of 2014, however no pricing or finish-out details have been released.

The 1908, three story building is one block north of the Alamo, two blocks from the recently upgraded Travis Park, and three blocks from the Tobin Center.  The building directly across the street, the Marie McGuire Apartments, SAHA affordable living for seniors, is currently closed for renovations.
