You're right. The surface lot across from the El Tropicano Hotel.

Yas, I can't wait for this semi modern tower to rise. At least i hope it's going to look like that.

...Off topic, that AT&T building needs to go or get redone or something, ick.

Thanks for the larger picture. Well it's definitely got a unique look to it. Wish it was closer to the color in the original picture though.

Oh wow, this is interesting. I am definitely happy that it is a modern look and pushing away from the typical all beige buildings of downtown SA. I just really hope the final design creates more street level interaction instead of just leaving that big wall on the street level.

This. That blank wall along Lexington with no fenestration nor human scale facade features won't fly.

Be aware. The developer is known for blank wall podiums. His high-rises in Houston, on the left (Cosmopolitan) and right (Astoria). The latter is wrapping up construction, up close the materials are pretty subpar. Hopefully the planning commission sends Thompson Residences back to the drawing board.



His other new developments seem more promising. After Astoria he teamed up with a new architect; ditched the art deco trend.

HDRC will be the commission to hear this, not planning. The UDC won't allow a base like the one proposed for the project at N St Mary's and Lexington.
