Located at an abandoned municipal airport site, the design vocabulary of this new sustainable grocery store was inspired by the original airport as evidenced by the swooping entry element reminiscent of an airplane wing. Today the area known as Market District, is a highly sustainable mixed-use urban village, which attracts residents interested in sustainable practices.
Innovative technology reduces energy and potable water use throughout the store. The all propane, low energy, refrigeration system is the first of its kind to be used in a United States grocery store.
Selser Schaefer Architects collaborated with Lake | Flato Architects and H-E-B Grocery Company to create the greenest grocery store H-E-B has ever designed, built and operated.
