San Antonio.- Amanda@laprensasa.com, Heading to downtown from South Flores and Nogalitos has a vast array of historical buildings. Back in the day, the area was known for its industry and manufacturing businesses. Unfortunately, many of the buildings have given in to age and are slowly decaying.
The area has recently become an attraction for many local artists, and modern art spaces. Many studios and eclectic restaurants are peppered throughout the area, and are giving life the one once dying area.
One couple has created a vision that they have finally put into fruition. A hundred year old building once called Peden Iron & Steel Building–once one of the most predominant metal distributors in the city has been resorted and converted from an abandoned warehouse into one of San Antonio’s newest premier places to live. Welcome to the Steel House Lofts!
Meet Jill and Dennis McDaniel– history buffs and owners of the Steel House Lofts. They have been working extremely hard and their work has finally paid off. The Lofts have created a sensation in the artist community, and the public has had a positive reception towards them. Open for leasing since December, They only have seven out of 67 rooms available.
“We bought this building six years ago, and it was completely empty. We built the walls around the pillars, so you can see the esthetic quality of them. We’ve tried to keep any of the building that has shown that there was humanity here: a scuff on the floor there, an old remnant of a machine here– it’s part of an era long gone, and we want to preserve that history,” Dennis McDaniel said.
The lofts are all furnished with stainless steel appliances and washers and dryers. There are 67 different floor plans, and not one loft is the same. Most of the plans include an outdoor space, as well. The amenities include a private fitness center, covered and controlled parking access, a swimming pool and an art exhibit: showcasing local artists work. The community is also pet friendly (They love animals of all types)!
“We never thought this would take off so suddenly. We’ve only started this venture three months ago, and it’s been a great success. We’re very grateful the public has been so open and shares our ideal about preserving history.” Jill McDaniel said.
