Verano Master Plan
San Antonio, Texas
- Triple L Management Group
- 2,700-acre, mixed-use community

- Infrastructure analysis for 45 miles of streets, 38 miles water pipe, 28 miles wastewater, 5.5 miles regulatory floodplain
Adjacent to the Toyota Tundra plant, Verano is the first realization of the vision to re-energize San Antonio’s south side. IDS provided conceptual engineering for a comprehensive greenfield infrastructure system to support 30,000 residents, 30,000 university students, and 30,000 jobs with a $2 billion tax base potential.
The master plan employs form-based development in a walkable, mixed-use community consisting of a town center and the start-up Texas A&M University San Antonio campus surrounded by three villages. The team helped secure a 30-year, $235 million Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone designation for the developers.
IDS’s infrastructure concept incorporates low-impact development techniques for stormwater runoff and a commuter rail station linking San Antonio to Austin. Verano was awarded a Gold Medal from American Council of Engineering Companies-Texas and a Long-Range Planning Award from the San Antonio Chapter of the American Planning Association.
