"The Headwaters at the Comal will be a place that establishes a relationship between the community and the environment by demonstrating the regeneration and protection of water and ecological resources."

Situated on the banks of the Comal Springs and Blieders Creek, the Headwaters at the Comal  will highlight the hydrological, environmental and cultural history of the region and will be a living demonstration of sustainable practices for the local community and nation. 

The landscape design of this property will include the restoration of the Comal Springs headwaters and the transformation of more than 16 acres of asphalt into immersive native landscape. Plant groupings will evoke regional typologies while newly introduced berms and bioswales filter and cleanse stormwater before returning it to the creek. Public amenities will include a central courtyard, event lawn, display gardens, walking trails, outdoor classrooms, natural spring overlooks, wastewater treatment wetlands, composting facilities and more.
