Mission Development Group (Mission) Won the Conservation Society of San Antonio’s Historic Preservation Award for the restoration of the St. Johns Seminary.
Located immediately south of Downtown San Antonio, the redevelopment of the former St. John’s Seminary has transformed the rapidly deteriorating 13.6-acre campus adjacent to Mission Concepción into a Class-A apartment community consisting of 230 new housing units.
The project also preserves and re-utilizes several historic structures with architectural and cultural significance to the Archdiocese of San Antonio and the city, in general.
“Watching this project come to fruition has been such a satisfying process, knowing how the local community will benefit. It’s an extra bonus to be recognized with the Historic Preservation Award form the Conservation Society of San Antonio.” -Mark Tolley, Partner at Mission
“The purpose of The Conservation Society of San Antonio’s Historic Preservation Awards is to honor those who have reached the highest level of accomplishment in historic preservation and to recognize the quality of preservation work achieved in the built environment. Nominations for these awards are closed.”
