Respecting the City’s vision, as the first TOD Transit-Oriented Development to be realized in San Antonio, VICINIA encourages a walkable, pedestrian-scaled public domain built within more intense densities. The Architectural Design Standards and Guidelines are built around the fundamental values arrived at through the application of these principles. While the Architectural Vision does not assume or prescribe any particular architectural style beyond the goal of creating a place, it does intend to reflect the richness of San Antonio and respect its climate and unique sense of place. Each building contributing to the larger vision of VICINIA must leverage these elements: transit-oriented, walkable, engaging the public realm, supporting a mix of uses. Buildings should also demonstrate a spirit of progressive creativity, cultural connectivity and ecologic sustainability.
