Early in 1976 the City of San Antonio Department of Planning and Community Development requested that the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio, consider undertaking archaeological and historical investigations in the Arciniega Street area of downtown San Antonio. Sale of City-owner property--including all of New City Block (NCB) 901 and portions of NCB l55--was pending, and the Planning Department was desirous of assessing the nature and degree of cultural resources prior to completing the transaction. The proposed construction of a multi-story luxury hotel on the property would require subsurface archaeological excavations, and the property's inclusion in the La Villita Historic District suggested the advisability of extensive historical research as well.
