Sad that the 314ft. Thompson Hotel is the largest current (or proposed) development.
I feel it too. There's so much boom in other major Texas cities except for SA

Oh, and Frost Tower is 386' not 400' (as much as I hate saying that. But, it's the truth). One looses credibility when fudging numbers - so, please be careful.

I for one am glad that SA's growth and development is a little "slower" than other Texas cities. As much as I love Austin/Houston/Dallas (I lived in the first two for a time), we've seen what explosive growth has done in terms of traffic, infighting about transportation, loss of culture etc. etc. There are lots of good things about those cities too... obviously... but its nice to see a Texas city that is able to strongly retain its cultural identity while growing at a more steady and sustainable rate. This is all my opinion of course. This isn't to say I would hate to see a big, beautiful 700' to 800' tower go up in SA either!
