St. John’s Pre-seminary High School (St. John’s Seminary) in San Antonio, Texas, is being rehabilitated thanks to historic tax credits (HTCs) and low-income housing tax credits (LIHTCs) and will become The St. John’s Apartments.

The development will provide 228 apartments, 75 percent of which will be available to those who earn between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income (AMI).

St. John’s Seminary was built in 1920 adjacent to Mission Concepción, which was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970 and is now a part of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, which includes Mission Concepción, San José, San Juan and Espada. The park, along with the Alamo, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015.

Monarch Private Capital admires the dedication of so many involved bringing this initiative to fruition.”
