About the building  

The William R. Sinkin Eco Centro building is a multipurpose community facility which will provide free meeting/office space for neighborhood associations and offer a range of low-cost and free workshops to area homeowners to promote sustainable lifestyles. 

In September 2010, San Antonio College received $600,000 from HUD through its Hispanic-Serving Institutions Assisting Communities Program for construction. Early construction planning began in January 2011. The Eco Centro building is in the process of obtaining LEED Certification and will feature solar energy and rain harvesting. Phase II will include a community garden and the addition of a B-cycle station. 

About the mural  

The idea of including a mural was not in the original construction plans. Local Tobin Hill resident and artist, Luis Lopez was commissioned to create a wall mural on the building’s street-facing facade. The mural spans the entire wall of the building exterior facing N. Main Ave. It depicts the history of the Tobin Hill neighborhood, starting from the indigenous San Pedro Springs going through current day.
