An extremely narrow (25' wide) and relatively tall (six levels) masonry structure, the 1892 San Antonio Loan & Trust building is one of the most urban dwellings built during San Antonio's late Victorian period. Fisher Heck worked with the owner to develop mixed-use master plan for the building that would encompass a restaurant and bar on the first and basement levels, office space on the second and third, with residential above not the top two floors. The basement was excavated to open to the River Walk and now is home to the authentic Irish Pub, Waxy O'Connor's. The ground floor entry was reconstructed and now opens to an upscale bar.
