Credit Human Headquaters
October 2 - October 3
For more than 40 years, Credit Human operated our headquarters out of a six-story building northwest of downtown San Antonio. We outgrew that space and built a new 12-story headquarters in the heart of San Antonio, at the intersection of Broadway Street and Pearl Parkway. This location presents an opportunity to invest in the urban core of our city and provide services to financially underserved neighborhoods.
The building feels like it is a part of the community, both in terms of design and what it brings to the neighborhood. The street level has a series of storefronts, courtyards, walkways and heavily treed and landscaped areas that are accessible and inviting. The design relates to the Pearl aesthetic and is reminiscent of the turn-of-the-century architecture at Ft. Sam Houston, incorporating local materials such as limestone, buff brick and tile. The development opens up to Broadway to support its continuing transformation into San Antonio’s primary cultural corridor.
Credit Human is a 100% member-owned, member-directed, and member-governed credit union. We believe that being good stewards of our financial resources and good stewards of our environmental resources go hand-in-hand. Working together, Credit Human and our development partner Silver Ventures, assembled a team of experts to design and construct a building that will save water, reduce energy consumption and lower carbon emissions.
Solar Power Supply
In 2015, Credit Human made a major commitment to sustainability by outfitting most of our San Antonio branch locations with solar power in one of the largest commercial solar projects in the city. We continued that commitment to clean energy by installing high efficiency photovoltaic solar panels on the new building. Dramatic improvements in materials and decreases in manufacturing and installation costs are making photovoltaic solar energy systems more powerful and economically feasible. Photovoltaic systems convert the energy in sunlight directly to electrical energy to power the building. The project includes 2,638 photovoltaic panels totaling 1 mega-watt of photovoltaic capacity on the roofs and parking structure of the building. This will supply roughly 40% of the annual electricity demand.
