The Goal: To Be a Place Where San Antonio Shines
“It’s easy to kind of forget how vibrant the growth of our city and our region is,” said Elizabeth Fauerso, chief strategy and marketing officer of the Pearl. “San Antonio is projected to become moved from being the seventh-largest city in the nation to the sixth-largest city in the nation in 2021.”
In anticipation of an influx of people, the Pearl is making big moves, not only by bringing in more restaurants but also by making architectural changes, such as turning a parking lot into a green space.
“It will be a park which is actually larger than the park, the plaza and the park right now, which is in front of our food hall and in front of Southerleigh (Fine Food and Brewery),” she said. “It doesn’t feel that way because it’s just covered in cars. but when you actually look at an aerial, you’ll see it’s a pretty significant space.”
