San Antonio, Texas 78244
The Scoutreach Leadership Development Center is located on South Zarzamora Street in San Antonio. The building is a new facility developed by the Boy Scouts of America Alamo Area Council and consists of about 4400 s.f. including adminstrative offices, scout store, activity rooms and additional support space. The site is approximately 1 acre with 28 parking spaces and is located on the south side of San Antonio. This building will give the Scouts a facility and a presence in an area of town that has been historically underserved by the Boy Scouts. It will provide meeting and training facilities for staff to work with volunteers and parents and will also provide after school programs and other activites for the Scouts. The site has enough land that a future sports field is planed for the facility which will accomodate football, soccer and possibly baseball and basketball.
The building interior consists of an administrative wing with offices, work room and conference area, a waiting and reception area, scout store and a large meeting space that can be sub-divided into 3 smaller spaces. In addition there is a break area, restooms and storage space. Interior finishes include stained concrete flooring with a mosaic of the boy scout logo, laminate cabinetry, and painted walls and ceilings. The entry has a large vaulted ceiling area that gives it an open, lofty feel as you enter the facility.
The exterior of the building has a stucco finish with brick wainscot and columns. The roofing is a dark green standing seam metal and there is a covered porch with a large wood truss at the gabled entry to the facility.
