San Antonio has been getting a steady stream of highrises since the mid 90s. It's just that many of them aren't really that tall, so they don't make much impact on the skyline and go unnoticed. There's been at least 8 of them since 1997 in the core of downtown (rough number, I'm using my fingers
). But most of these are in the 10 to 15 story range. I actually think that speaks well about San Antonio's downtown area density-wise. With that many new buildings going up, and they aren't even noticed, because they get lost in the crowd. Also in the past many of those other buildings were being built when the forum didn't even exist yet. Ha. And it wasn't really until about 3 or 4 years ago that there were more San Antonio forumers starting to show up on the forum, so it sort of got misrepresented back then, though I did try my best at filling the role.
