For more than 40 years, Credit Human has operated our headquarters out of a six-story building northwest of downtown San Antonio. We’ve outgrown that space and are building 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 will feel like it is a part of the community, both in terms of design and what it brings to the neighborhood. The street level will have a series of storefronts, courtyards, walkways and heavily treed and landscaped areas that are accessible and inviting. The design will relate to the Pearl aesthetic and be reminiscent of the turn-of-the-century architecture at Ft. Sam Houston, incorporating local materials such as limestone, buff brick and tile. The development will open 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, have assembled a team of experts to design and construct a building that will save water, reduce energy consumption and lower carbon emissions.
This building will include one of our Credit Human Financial Health Centers, a place for members to handle day-to-day financial needs and to meet with our staff for additional support. Financial stress is harmful to people, families, workplaces and communities. We are focused on reducing financial stress by helping our members improve their financial health, which over time will also have a positive impact on our community.

We believe that reducing environmental stress is just as important. We’re partnering with Silver Ventures to design and construct this building in the most sustainable way possible, using a portfolio approach of different sustainable building strategies that will reduce energy and water consumption, reduce carbon emissions and ultimately set a new standard for sustainable commercial building in San Antonio.
