The Pearl has released a statement on the purchase of the property.
“Our objectives are to restore the historic building,” Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer for the Pearl, said, “and also to think about the streetscape and try to improve it. We want to think about how to add more green space, outdoor space or seating space; to think about how to add more parking so that it can actually support that establishment; and then to think about a really cool and interesting use for the little house.”
Silver Ventures plan to work together with the HDRC and its neighbors in Tobin Hill to preserve and repurpose historic assets bringing them new life within the San Antonio community.
