The developer of Sylvan Thirty received approval from City Council Wednesday to build three new buildings in the parking lot of the Chase Bank building on Sylvan and Fort Worth avenues.
Oaxaca Interest LLC has enlisted San Antonio-based Lake Flato Architects, which designed Sylvan Thirty, for these three buildings, which will be leased shops and a restaurant.
Each of the buildings will comprise about 3,500 square feet, and construction is expected to begin early next year.
The drive-through bank will be removed to accommodate more parking, and additional parking spaces also have been added to the rear of the bank building, on Chappell Street.
Sylvan Thirty has been open since 2014, and Oaxaca principal Brent Jackson says the retail portion is about 75 percent leased.
The developer also is planning a mix of restaurants and shops on property just east of Sylvan Thirty, where they’re reusing an old warehouse building.
Another developer, Susan Gandy, is planning another development of restaurants and shops development called Sylvan Terrace at the northeast corner of Sylvan and Fort Worth avenues.
