Description

A consortium known as Sunset Station Development Group (SSDG) was selected by VIA Metropolitan Transit Authority to redevelop five acres of the Sunset Depot property in San Antonio, Texas. The project involves the renovation and expansion of the existing train station and surrounding acreage as a themed entertainment, restaurant complex modeled on the very successful Church Street Station in Orlando Florida. The intent is to create a world class visitor destination centered around the historic Sunset Depot that would complement San Antonio’s renowned Paseo del Rio, or River Walk, a 21 block stretch along the San Antonio River lined with restaurants, shops and hotels. Harrison Price Company (HPC) was retained by SSDG to examine the potential of the proposed restaurant/entertainment center in the context of this rapidly expanding market. The evaluation included a review of project content and recommendations on parameters of capacity, market penetration, attendance, and per capita expenditures. The primary objective of the work was to determine the ability of the concept to draw sufficient attendance to the site to support a high quality attraction.
