If that gap is ever going to get filled in most of it will have to happen in this area, because of the Alamo and the restrictions on building tall to its east and immediate north and south, and the Riverwalk.

I'll try to post a pic of DT from I90 inbound, as that is a nice view of DT, but my luck with posting pics has thus far proven futile.

This photo also shows how San Antonio's skyline is growing in the opposite direction of the Tower of the Americas... much like Seattle.

I know I'll catch crap for this, but can you imagine if the gap between the ToA and Weston Center was filled by 800 -1000 footers?

I'm interested to see how the west side of DT will pan out.

Looking forward to it.


When Frost tops out, maybe someone in SA with a high powered telephoto lens could get a photo from Willowbrook Drive on the northwest side?
