The Shops at La Cantera Celebrates 15 Years in San Antonio

The Shops at La Cantera Celebrates 15 Years in San Antonio

The Shops at La Cantera have been a shopping haven in San Antonio for a decade and a half. Located on the northside of San Antonio, the open concept shopping center is set on the edge of the city, with a view of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. After ten years of planning, three years of construction, on September 16, 2005 The Shops at La Cantera opened its doors bringing a new level of shopping to South Texas.

Anchored by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, and Macy’s, this open-air marketplace blends the shopping efficiency of a regional mall with the ease of use of a lifestyle center in a distinctive, landscape-focused environment. Created as a prototype for future development of regional-scale outdoor centers, the design addresses both environmental concerns about land use and nature conservancy, and evolving shopping patterns. Overall planning for the center was developed with the goal of preserving as much natural landscape as practical. Site edges were preserved largely as found in the wild, an approach that provides a greenbelt buffer to the adjacent freeway and creates a sense of transition into the site from the feeder roads.

The property was oriented to step down the grade naturally in a series of buildings clustered around an ever-changing linear series of courtyards, paseos, and gardens.  Shaded seating areas and a year-round blooming landscape provide places to rest, relax and refuel for more shopping or dining.  Leading the way as an example of large-scale retail development that works with the natural landscape, the overall design expands its environmental responses to include saving and relocating existing major trees and an emphasis on xeriscaping and selection of hardy, low-water foundation plantings throughout the project, which naturally focuses on native plants found in the region.

Safety

New measures have been implemented to help ensure the health and safety for all who enter the Mall, including hand-sanitizing stations, touch-free interactions, frequent and intense cleanings, social distancing directions, and a new filtered air system that captures airborne viruses. In addition, as required by state or local mandate and to keep our community safe, face coverings are required (with certain exceptions) upon entering the Mall.  Signage of our face coverings requirement has been posted to all public entry doors.  We are working diligently to provide a safe, clean environment where people feel comfortable shopping, dining, and enjoying their time. 

For a more detailed list of all of their security measures, visit their Safety Page.
