World Heritage Center taking shape at Mission Marquee Plaza

In just over a year, work on the World Heritage Center, a visitor center serving San Antonio’s Spanish colonial missions, has surpassed the halfway point and is on schedule to open Sept. 1. 

The World Heritage Center will serve as a gateway to the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, designated a UNESCO World Heritage site along with the Alamo in 2015. 

Construction began in late 2023. The shell on the 6,000-square-foot building next to Mission Marquee Plaza at 3100 Roosevelt Ave. is nearly complete, and the veranda screen designed by ​​San Antonio artist Adriana Garcia has been fabricated.
