The push for downtown development continues, and this time, it will look a lot like the Pearl.

I was able to hear details about the Hemisfair Park Redevelopment plan at the CCIM luncheon I attended earlier today, where Omar Gonzalez, the director of planning, operations and development for the Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corp., spoke about some of the plans and goals for the project. And they’re big.

If and when this plan shapes up to be what many are hoping, the plan’s impact on the rest of San Antonio’s downtown environment will be enormous. Here are just a few of the project’s components:

– 19 acres of usable dedicated park land

– 2,000 residents in multifamily structures

– 3,000 parking spaces

– Concert venue
