- Silver Ventures recently bought this building on East Josephine Street.
Silver Ventures bought the 2.2-acre property at 102 E. Josephine St. in late September from Illinois company Glenmorangie LLC, county property records show. It includes a 34,500-square-foot industrial building constructed in 1990, according to the Bexar Appraisal District.
“We have no plans for the property and won’t likely for a few years,” Bill Shown, Silver Ventures’ managing director for real estate, said in a text message. “In the meantime we’re using it for storage, office space and parking.”
The property encompasses the entire city block bounded by the San Antonio River, and Isleta, East Josephine and East Grayson streets.
Silver Ventures has been buying up property around the Pearl in recent years to accommodate its expansion plans. It now owns nearly all the land on both sides of the river between Newell Avenue and East Grayson, and going as far east as U.S. 281.
Last year, the company finished construction of the Southline Residences apartment complex at 226 Newell Ave. On Broadway, construction appears nearly completed on Credit Human’s 12-story headquarters building, and the Oxbow, an eight-story office building that will house Bank of America, among other tenants.
