San Antonio: The Impact Of A Downtown Grocery Store on Southtown Living

Downtown dwellers rejoiced with the opening of the first downtown grocery store, HEB Flores Market. Finally, after years and years of redevelopment this area of downtown is finally thriving once again! With the revitalization of downtown comes more trendy restaurants and a huge expansion in the housing market!

The grocery store received a warm welcoming from city residents and you can rest assure that this is only the start in the surge of downtown development.


Southtown is clearly one neighborhood that is affected by the HEB Flores Market. As one of the oldest neighborhoods, it is located loosely between South Flores Street and South Presa Street nuzzled between the King Williams Historical District and Blue Star Complex.

Southtown is just a short walk from the new downtown grocery store, and a very soci-economically diverse neighborhood. The multi-family market are sure to experience a highly desirable increase with the new HEB grocery store now in the area. 

Currently, nearly a dozen multi-family projects are under construction or on the drawing board in downtown San Antonio. It is projected that over 2,000 units will be built within walking distance to HEB Flores Market in the next several years.  Apartment demand shows no signs of slowing down for this section of downtown San Antonio
