The Broadway Cultural Corridor stretches from the center city of San Antonio to Hildebrand Avenue, and connects many of the city’s cultural pillars including University of the Incarnate Word, the Witte Museum, The DoSeum, San Antonio Zoo, and Brackenridge Park.
As home to many of the city’s landmark cultural institutions, vibrant neighborhoods, restaurants, retail shops and office space, it’s vital that Broadway is transformed into a first-class corridor for residents and visitors to San Antonio. When compared to peer streets in other cities, Broadway falls short in offering adequate sidewalks, bike lanes, and placemaking amenities that inspire people’s health and wellbeing.
Improvements to Broadway will be a transformative project offering safe access for pedestrians, bicyclists, public transportation and motorists, encouraging more multipurpose use in an area where San Antonians live, work, learn and play. Upgrades will also attract quality development along its frontage, leading to increased tax revenue for the city. In the last 10 years we have seen $269.7 million in new taxable developments along the Broadway corridor. The investment in Broadway would create between $55 and $64 million in tax revenue over the next 20 years.
From Fiesta parades and family picnics to museum visits and train rides, the Broadway Cultural Corridor has served as a memory maker for San Antonio residents for decades. Now is the time to upgrade it for the next generation.
