I love that full skyline shot! Plus the rest of the individual building shots were good as well. San Antonio in these photos looks like a pop-up town(i.e. Blazing Saddles). Not to say that's anything bad though.

Watch yourself. The San Antonio gestapo over at SSP will come and take you away for that sort of blasphemy.

Because you're talking smack about the greatest city ever concived of man in their whacked out little world. Oops, I might need to keep my mouth shut before they come after me again!

Seriously though, over at SSP, they feel the need to waste tons of server space on posting the most mundane and tedious news about any sort of possible development that may or may not happen within a 100 mile radius of the city center. I just have to laugh at the excruciating minutia of it all!!

Nice photos. Downtown reminds me of Buffalo but with a latin influence.

I think your missing the point. Hes not saying you are talking smack, he is saying the people at SSP are really sensitive and would take it as smack talking.

Well I agree for a city it's size it should have some newer/bigger towers going up.
I love the SA skyline and it's amazing how close it is to hill country.

I agree that San Antonio needs new buildings in the skyline, but I know that there's a new Hyatt going up pretty close to the Tower of the Americas. It's not all that tall, but it's better than nothing. (I guess about 450 feet) Why weren't there any photos of that?

Excellent photos!!! I like DT San Antonio, even as is. Sure, it will be nice if a few more towers get built, but the urban fabric of the city deserves recognition and should come first.

Took my thoughts right from me, it really would be tons better with some modern "talls".
Looks like a 1970's downtown. Most of those type downtowns are in the midwest, like Dayton, not the south.
