“We recognize that some members of the community have an attachment to the Hemisfair archway. We are respectful of that attachment, and because of it, we are carefully dismantling it and storing it on site until we determine an appropriate place for its reconstruction at Hemisfair.” -Andres Andujar, CEO Hemisfair

Andujar said the archway’s relocation was necessary in order to re-establish some of the neighborhood’s street grid that existed prior to HemisFair ’68. With the arch gone, park designers will be able to eventually have Nueva continue from alongside La Villita east into the park. Because the arch was constructed in 1988, the San Antonio Conservation Society saw nothing wrong with its removal. [...] the plans do call for stabilizing and refurbi...

Hemisfair continues to make progress toward transforming into an amazing urban district with improved and expanded parks, retail and residences, and increased connectivity to the surrounding neighborhoods. Today marks an exciting turning point in the streets project, an approved plan to restore parts of the pre-68 historic street grid. In order to create East Nueva Street - a major connection point to La Villita - the archway has been deconstructed and will be stored safely on the premise, until a new home can be found for it. Day by day, we are getting closer to having series of beloved urban parks connected by a vibrant, walkable district for our community to enjoy! ‪#‎Hemisfair‬

Our Rachel Holland 's last day at Hemisfair has come to a close. She has been such an important part of the Hemis-team the past three years and her true, contagious passion is unrivaled. We will miss her greatly and, at the same time, are excited and proud for her new adventures at graduate school at George Washington University and working on Capital Hill. Huge Hemis-thanks to you Rachel, and we look forward to your San Antonio visits! #Hemisfair

Story
Tagline
Hemisfair is the place that leads San Antonio on the path from good to great
Introduction
Downtown is the heart and soul of our City, and we desire to make it everybody’s neighborhood. Featuring iconic landmarks such as the Tower of Americas, the Alamo and the Riverwalk, San Antonio must protect its most vital and historical resources, and invest to create a more desirable place for locals.

The vision for the redevelopment of Hemisfair is to create a vital mixed use area, centered on a city park which maintains and revitalizes the historic buildings while reconnecting the area to the adjacent neighborhoods and providing new mixed use development, compatible in scale with adjacent properties. Hemisfair Park will continue to be an accessible neighborhood park that unifies the city, serves as a community gathering place, and provides an opportunity for citizens to work, live, and play. Hemisfair Park will offer many special places and uses; some active, some quiet.

This vision will foster community-wide impact by recognizing the Hemisfair Park area as critical connecting tissue between previously disengaged sectors of the urban core. Capitalizing on the success of HemisFair ’68, the plan’s improvements will encourage economic vitality, pride and a sense of community for generations of San Antonians now and yet to come.
