Cevallos Lofts

Casa Lavaca
502 Eager , Debra Maltz: (210) 224-2213

In the heart of Southtown, just across from the Southtown community garden and down the street from favorite area eateries such as Bite, Bliss, Taco Haven and many others, Casa Lavaca offers intimate (and pet-free) apartment living in the historic and recently renovated Marlow Chiropractic Clinic. The building’s old charm shines through in the eight units updated with wood floors, new kitchen appliances and communal resident amenities such as a free laundry room, barbecue area and bike rack. Units sized between 487 and 757 square feet run approximately $900 to $1,300 per month.

1010 South Flores
1010 S Flores, (210) 277-1010,

One of the many new residential options in the South Flores district, 1010 offers residents an artsy, urban feel with rotating art installations on site. The 46 units range from 650 to 1,025 square feet each for around $975 to $1,680 a month. Each apartment has a private balcony, and residents can take advantage of laundry and exercise facilities and optional storage units. Local architect Ken Bentley designed the sleek facility that’s near CHRISPark, SoFlo art galleries and Chef Johnny Hernandez’ hoppin’ Fruteria. Non-aggressive dogs up to 45 pounds are welcome.

St. Benedict's Lofts
1115 S Alamo, (210) 862-5638,

St. Benedict’s Lofts claims the unofficial title of most conveniently situated living space in Southtown. Nestled in King William, these apartments share the block with Liberty Bar and MBS Fitness (a fabulous, efficient little gym to which residents have free access), and it’s an easy walk to myriad other Southtown eateries and drinkeries. The 66 units connected by interior halls range from 790 to 2,100 square feet, for rent beginning around $1,300 and heading upwards of $3,200 for the largest spaces. Pets are welcome and human residents have access to a pool, lounging area and one covered parking space per unit.

Steel House Lofts
1401 S Flores, (210) 227-1913,

Housed in a 1913 warehouse designed by Texas architect Atlee B. Ayres, the 67 units in Steel House Lofts, no two alike, present modern luxury with details that hearken back to the building’s historic past. Ranging in size from 651 to 2,556 square feet, each apartment has laundry utilities, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Residents have access to covered, controlled-access parking, a private fitness center with personal trainer, on-site storage and communal outdoor spaces—all for around $1,325 to $3,125 a month.

Cevallos Lofts
301 E Cevallos, (210) 598-0866,

One of the largest Southtown apartment options, Cevallos Lofts boasts 252 units, including a two-story townhome option, all between 600 and 1,331 square feet. The complex offers multiple lounge and terrace areas, mail facilities, restricted-access underground parking and a glamorous, resort-style courtyard and pool. Uncommon Fare grocery is housed in the same building, and the Cevallos Street location is neatly located between Blue Star Arts complex and the South Flores art district (and right down the street from La Tuna!). Rent runs from approximately $1,135 to $3,000.
