The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is San Antonio's largest performance venue located on the famed riverwalk and is being proclaimed as one of South Texas's finest performance facilities. The original municipal auditorium was built in 1926 by Atlee Ayres and later suffered a catastrophic fire in 1979. The auditorium was thankfully rebuilt in 1986 but later fell into disrepair and remained vacant for several years until 2011 when construction began on the now current state of the art performance hall. Fisher Heck was honored to be the historic preservation consultant to the design team, providing technical expertise on the restoration of the surviving historic building, as well as guiding the project through the necessary regulatory processes and consultations with other preservation stakeholders.
