“We have today, not only a new name, but a new way of looking at this particular neighborhood."
A new vision for the neighborhood.
Few neighborhoods in San Antonio are as distressed as the one surrounding the former Wheatley Courts. Residents and investment abandoned the area while the neighborhood suffered from failing schools, high crime and unemployment rates. The new vision for Wheatley Courts, now renamed East Meadows, made the neighborhood a walkable, sustainable, mixed-income and intergenerational community with multi-family residences reflecting the unique history of the Eastside. As intended, the development houses a diverse mixed-income levels from all walks of life including former Wheatley Court residents, U.S. Service Personnel from Fort Sam Houston and working families from downtown San Antonio’s central business district.
