San Antonio has a plethora of residential zoning districts, each with their own unique requirements regarding lot size, land use, and building setbacks (the minimum distance from the property lines a structure can be located). Fortunately, the city’s unified development code permits internal, attached, and detached accessory dwellings by right in many of the rural and residential districts. This ruling makes it significantly easier for us to build ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) and other liveable backyard structures within city limits, however there are standards addressing occupancy, unit size and number per lot, number of bedrooms, and off street parking. Historical districts are also found throughout the city, and Neighborhood Conservation zones can present complications with design, making San Antonio a city where utilizing a knowledgeable and experienced team is necessary and price benefitting.
