PCPA selected to design Frost Tower in San Antonio

New Haven (October 5, 2015) –After a nationwide search, PCPA was chosen by Western Urban and KDC to design San Antonio's first downtown office tower in three decades. In addition to its mixed-use capacity, it will house Frost Bank’s headquarters. This is PCPA’s first commission in San Antonio.

"We couldn't possibly be any more excited to announce the selection of Pelli Clarke Pelli to lead the design of the Frost Tower," said Weston Urban President Randy Smith. "Throughout the lengthy selection process, Fred [Clarke] and Bill [Butler] have consistently wowed us with their firm's understanding that great design is, in large part, local design, all the while bringing their international experience to bear. Pairing with a firm of this caliber is representative of the entire team's ambition for the project."

Fred responded, “We are thrilled and honored to be chosen as architects for the new Frost Tower. This transformative project will extend the commercial district of Houston Street to the vibrant redevelopment of San Pedro Creek.”

“KDC is very excited about the opportunity to work with Frost, Weston Urban and Pelli Clarke Pelli to develop a new headquarters that will not only symbolize the bank’s dominant place in the market but also be a proud landmark for San Antonio,” said KDC Executive Vice President Don Mills. 

“Frost supports Weston Urban’s selection of Pelli Clarke Pelli as the lead architect for the new Frost Tower,” said Cullen/Frost Bankers, Inc. President Phil Green.  “We are thrilled to be keeping our headquarters downtown as the named tenant in an iconic building that will be designed by a world-renowned architecture firm.”
