Square Feet
1,331,153 SF

The Shops at La Cantera is a 1,331,153 SF an open-air shopping center located within La Cantera, USAA Real Estate’s mixed-use master development, in San Antonio, Texas. The shopping center was constructed as a single-level, garden-like "retail village" with varied storefronts, shared arcades and subtle water features. The overall Texas Hill Country architectural style of the center was designed to solve environmental concerns about land usage and nature conservation. The shops reflect the preservation of natural landscape and evolutions in modern-day shopping patterns.

The 1,043,000 SF Phase I of the development opened in 2005 and features over 150 inline retailers, shops and premier restaurants, anchored by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, and Macy’s.

Phase II opened in October of 2008, including 288,153 SF of premier shopping, Class-A office space and signature restaurants on the 34-acre parcel expansion of Phase I.
