Fantastic thread! My favorites are the ones that show bustling city streets filled with pedestrians and the before and after broad city views from similar perspectives that really show the new buildings.

The more I think about it, the more I realize how harmful the automobile-ization of our culture and white flight were for cities. I am glad this trend seems to be reversing and young people are moving back into cities.

Thanks to everyone who contributed. I hope to see more pics here.

Here's the Renaissance Tower. You can see the x bracing. That's why the windows have the x patterns on it.

It's a shame San Antonio's skyline hasn't really changed that much in 30+ years!!
