I'm betting Weston Urban had a competing interest in the AC Properties, probably will buy the whole lot of them.

I thought that Lynd had some interest in that property for development at one time. They certainly haven't felt the need to pull the trigger on any of their downtown holdings so far.

I did like design of the time shares project (Italian themed) so many years back where they included a courtyard with retail. The AC design seemed like a poor use of the property. I didn't mind the building's overall look

RIP Piazza San Lorenzo.

I was hyper-cynical even then...

I've always thought that properties along the river could be better utilized and provide a better experience if there were more plazas that could pull people in and make it more interesting with better interactions to the streets, but what is there hasn't worked as well because everyone wants to be next to the river. Also, I noticed one comment from the Floodgate HDRC review where someone thought the passageway was too big so they seem to advocate the closed off, hidden feeling. I think if they were to do them like New Orleans it would work.

Saw that quote too. I really like that passageway. Looks to have an nice open feel to it, and it linked to the river nicely, IMO.

Yes I remember going to a meeting about Travis Park a couple of years ago or so, some architect claimed he was designing a high rise for that lot you mentioned. As I have since heard absolutely nothing new.

San Antonio will always have new hotel rooms, the market isn't swamped yet... unless it is getting there and I'm mistaken. Maybe they should have thought about having an apt component instead?

Anyway, I hope this new group builds something to match the Rand across the street. The Geekdom Events Center is shady at night with that empty solo serve building.

This is excellent development news!
And now that we have one of the best convention centers in the country, more hotel rooms will be needed.

The hotel market isn't exactly humming.

This article explained a lot to me. We've got PLENTY of hotel capacity relative to available marketing dollars.
