New life given to historical Gibbs home in Government Hill

With its six chimneys, two wrap-around porches and Victorian charm, this 133-year-old home looks relatively similar from its Mason Street view in Government Hill now then it most likely did when it was built in 1887.

Army Colonel C.C. Gibbs, who after the Civil War got into the land and railroad business in San Antonio, built it. He owned about 10,000 acres of land and built his home as one of the first in the now historical Government Hill neighborhood.

“He was instrumental in the development of San Antonio,” Logan Fullmer, owner of Asset Resolution Partners said. “He built the Gibbs building, the hotel downtown. Which at the time was the tallest building.”

Fullmer said the home was a prominent social symbol where Gibbs loved to host social gatherings.

“We think several of the presidents from the time had been here but we can’t confirm that yet,” Fullmer said.

Hill Realty lists 11 properties for sale

Nashville-based H.G. Hill Realty Co. is offering for sale 11 properties, including two notable ones in Midtown, for undisclosed asking prices.

The offerings — 13 properties originally were listed, two have already sold — are of land and buildings for which the company said it has no long-term redevelopment plans. The properties are available either collectively or individually.

Of note, the two Midtown properties have addresses of 1815 Church St. (home to Advance Financial), 120 19th Ave. N. (which accommodates Royal Thai) and 1801 State St. (a surface parking lot).

Hill Realty acquired the 1801 State property in 1976 for $32,500, according to Metro records. It bought both 1815 Church (pictured) and 120 19th as one property in 1925 for $15,000.

Hill Realty has enlisted Greg Coleman and Treanor Granbery — principal and affiliate broker, respectively, at Nashville-based Southeast Venture — to handle the marketing and sale of the properties.

Congresswoman-elect Cori Bush is buying her Capitol Hill wardrobe from thrift stores while she waits for her first paycheck. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and more offered her advice for affordable style.

“The reality of being a regular person going to Congress is that it’s really expensive to get the business clothes I need for the Hill,” the Missouri Democrat tweeted.

But she’s far from the only congresswoman who’s shopped at a thrift store for her professional wardrobe. All four members of “The Squad,” progressive women of color who serve in the House of Representatives, are sharing the tips they’ve used to silence critics on Capitol Hill and dress on a budget.

Todt Hill St. Charles Seminary property on market for $7.25M

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The Todt Hill-based St. Charles Seminary property — which a builder was planning to transform into housing for people age 55 or older — is up for sale for $7.25 million, the Advance/SILIve.com has learned.

The Advance/SILive.com reported the property had again been put up for sale last year for an undisclosed amount of money after Huguenot-based developer Tom Costa’s plan to build homes on the property was shot down by the the Todt Hill community.

With that plan now scrapped, a Manhattan-based real estate agency is marketing the nearly eight acres of Todt Hill property — owned by The Pious Society of the Missionaries of St. Charles Boromeo — to be used “as is,” rather than redeveloped with homes.

Denver Starting Small-Area Planning Process for Park Hill Golf Club Property

Denver will soon initiate a small-area planning process for the 155-acre property that includes the now-closed Park Hill Golf Club, and the developer that bought the property has agreed to participate.

“I want to reaffirm our commitment to honestly listening to the people who will bring this project to life and to a transparent and equitable dialogue,” says Kenneth Ho, the project lead at Westside Investment Partners, in a statement announcing the agreement. “We recognize that there is a higher bar for community benefits on this site, and we are committed to ensuring that the end result of this project reflects the values and needs of the community.”

The announcement comes two months after Denver City Council voted against referring a measure to the ballot that would have required voter approval for the city to lift any conservation easements, which limit development possibilities for the property. For decades, the Park
