The Historic Heimann Building
The historic Heimann building houses AVANCE headquarters and is at the forefront of San Antonio’s downtown-Westside corridor revitalization. The former hotel was built over a century ago and AVANCE upgraded the facility to modern standards in 2003, while simultaneously retaining its historic character.
With restored New Orleans-style balconies and Spanish red tile roof, the refurbished Heimann building has become a prominent landmark for the historic Cattleman Square District and the building is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
