This building was originally the Comal Power Plant (later owned by LCRA) built in 1923 and was closed down in 1973. It was originally a coal burning power plant and then switched to natural gas later on. Water was diverted from the comal river to help cool the generators and equipment used to make electricity. It is the now the Landmark Apartment Complex. The renovation from power plant to apartments was very extensive (and expensive) but is quite the site to see if you have a chance. The building is open to the public and has a few stores and bistros on the lower floors. You can read more about it’s history at the Comal County Historical Commission .  Here’s a decent article from the Austin Chronicle as well.
