Rivard Report Photo Editor Scott Ball went on a tour of 530 McCullough Ave., where CPS Energy officials expect the public utility will move its headquarters to by fall of 2019.

The former AT&T headquarters has sat vacant for several years and it will cost more than $100 million to transform the two office towers into a LEED Gold certified facility. The third floor features a walkway that connects the two office towers.

A new 1,200-space parking garage will occupy the northeast corner of the property and will likely feature a solar panel array. The ground level could be occupied by a retail tenant, officials said, maybe a “print shop, gym, (or) pharmacy,” and there are opportunities to host food trucks near the San Antonio River.

Wednesday’s tour was one of many hosted by CPS Energy for several companies that will apply for the coveted construction management contract.
