SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The fate of a downtown San Antonio bar is still up in the air.

According to KSAT-12, the owner of Moses Rose’s Hideout says the 4 million dollars he was offered for his bar is not enough, so he’s taking legal action.

Vince Cantu says the price tag for his business stands at $5.26 million. He says he wants 4 million bucks for the building plus an additional 1.26 million for lost revenue.

Cantu and his attorney say a third party was brought in to skew the property’s appraised value. They say the value of the building and business should be $9.02 million.

The Houston Street bar is currently in a space the Texas General Land Office and the City wants to use for part of the future Alamo Visitors Center and Museum.

Cantu and his attorney says they received word from an anonymous source that the Alamo Trust and the City brought in appraisal company RSI to help reduce the value of his establishment.

KSAT received a statement from the Alamo Trust claiming Cantu’s claims are false and that he has been offered $5.3 million, $4 million for the building and $1.3 million for loss of revenue.

Cantu and his lawyer have filed suit against the Alamo Trust and RSI in an attempt to get depositions to backup their claims.

City officials will initiate eminent domain proceeding Monday, May 8.
