On the up and up

Mark our words: 2019 is going to be a big year in San Antonio. As the fastest growing city in America, there are new restaurants, stores, homes, offices and more being built in every corner of the city. Take a peek at some of the businesses slated to open next year. 

With each new construction popping up in the San Antonio area, we’re adding to the overall blueprint of our city. Every new business built in the San Antonio city limits needs a solid infrastructure, including water access. As the city grows, so does SAWS, and we’re making the right moves today to ensure a successful tomorrow.

Legoland Discovery Center

Every little builder’s dream is coming true in early 2019. Legoland’s indoor playground is set to open in Rivercenter mall after the New Year and will feature 10 themed zones, like a 4D Cinema, Kingdom Quest, Miniland, and Duplo Farm. The Discovery Center is intended for kids age 3-10, but we have a feeling some adults will be having fun at this colorful playland too.
