City Base Commons will provide our community with even more great options for dining and shopping.”

City Base Commons will incorporate design features including red brick exteriors with wood grain and metal accents to match the materials used throughout the Brooks campus, specifically the University of Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic medicine. The development will also feature multiple decks for outdoor dining, shaded by beautiful heritage oak trees.

We’ve also reserved two pad sites within this development for future tenants, which will allow for City Base Commons to continue to grow with demand.”
