Located in the heart of San Antonio’s Central Business District, Frost Tower is the first new office tower to rise in downtown San Antonio since 1989.

Frost Tower features 440,000 square feet of leasable office space and an additional 20,000 square feet of street retail. The structure also includes a 1,000-space wraparound parking facility, which wraps the west side of the building.

Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and Kendall/Heaton Associates, Inc, the 24-story octagonal building tapers up to a curtain wall “crown” supported by structural steel at the roof.  Each floor’s unique footprint generates a twisting geometric structure, giving the building a distinct aesthetic. 

Frost Tower is designed to achieve LEED® Silver certification and features high-efficiency light fixtures, low-emitting materials, low-flow plumbing fixtures, water-efficient landscaping, and electric car charging stations.
