Here is a list so far of what I can find right now in news articles and off the top of my head.

Condos

- Fair field Resorts at La Cascada. This is a 10 story condo project with units ranging in size from 800sf to 1400 sf and to be sold at 225 to 300 dollars per sf. This sits right next to the now almost fully bought and leased La Cascada tower on the river walk.

- Plaza San Lorenzo. This 11 story condo project That will be put in place of the soon to be razed Solo Serve Building and will occupy some of the Clegg Building. Construction is expected to begin in September with a completion date sometime within the first quarter of 2007.

- Neisner Building Condos. 40 Luxury Condos will fill the soon to be renovated Neisner Building at the Corner of Broadway and Houston Streets.

- Dillards Lofts. 62 Condos are planned to go in over the Dillards department store downtown. (This one may be stale at the moment, bc the mall has new owners)

-Hyatt Lofts. These will sit amongst the soon to get off the ground 45 story Hyatt Convention Center Hotel. Pricing and sq have not been released yet. Around 150 units are expected to be built.

- 32 story lofts. The only information I have on this at this time is that the structure will be 32 stories and will be "across from the Alamodome." It is supposed to break ground sometime during the first quarter of 2006.


Hotels

-Hyatt Convention Center Hotel. This 45 story structure (including five stories of parking) will break ground June 10th tentatively with 1000 rooms to be built. The two bright towers will rise above The River walk 525 feet (if parking stays underground) and will be the second tallest skycraper in San Antotnio, falling behind the Tower of Americas.

-Staybridge Suites. Staybride will be building a 13 story tower in St. Paul Square in Sunset Station. This 109 Suite Hotel is expected to be completed sometime in 2006.

Here are some more projects that came to mind.

-San Antonio International Airport Expansion. The terminal expansion will happen in phases, to where terminal B will be built first, then terminal 2 will be Razed, and then terminal C will be built bringing the gate total in the end to about 35 gates. The City threw out all the original bids in April because all were well above the budget, and went back to the Council to revise the budget. Final renderings are due out in June.


-Methodist hospital in Stone Oak. This state of the Art Hospital will be located on the corner of Hardy Oak Ave. and Sonterra Parkway in the exploding area of Stone Oak in far North San Antonio. It is being built in phases and once finished with cover much of the 40 acres of land purchased by Methodist. It is being built in response to Baptist Health Systems Expansion of their Stone Oak hospital, that in the end will double the amount of beds in the Baptist hospital. Stone Oak is now being billed as "San Antonio's Second Medical Center".


-Hotel Contessa. Nearing completion this upscale hotel in downtown San Antonio is sitting at 13 floors tall and will be a landmark on the San Antonio River. Its modern yet elegant design will entice guests with exquisite dining and shopping, and will offer a full spa hotel experience.

Big Tex Grain in South Town.




Alamo Architects is developing the Master Plan for this unique mixed-use development. On the site of the former Big Tex Grain Company, this community is being built on an industrial site directly across from the historic King William district just south of San Antonio. The Master Plan calls for the sprawling site to be redeveloped into 123 multifamily units, 12 townhouses, and 50,000 square feet of new and remodeled commercial space and live/work units. The site is bound on one side by the San Antonio River, and by a highly active railroad line on the other side, creating numerous challenges for Alamo Architects. The finished project will result in creative solutions for these challenges in areas such as noise abatement, access and utilities. Residents will enjoy proximity to the Blue Star Arts Complex and the hike and bike trail that is to run the length of the river, highlighting the many features of the finished development.

Now I'll post some stuff going on outside the Central Loop/Downtown.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ventura Plaza



Three, two-story buildings will combine to provide 74,400 square feet of retail, restaurant and office lease space at this center. Located on Loop 1604 between Blanco Blvd. and Stone Oak Parkway, the center was situated and designed to capture the available scenic views of the Canyon Creek Country Club Golf Course from the courtyards and the second floor professional service lease spaces, thus creating more of an integration between the built environment and the natural environment than normally is found at such a center. This integration, combined with an appealing aesthetic color palette and finishes, will attract and enhance the pedestrian experience throughout this center.

Park North Plaza



Central Park Mall was one of San Antonio's earliest indoor mall and at one time a very successful mall. But then its neighrbor North Star Mall, just across San pedro Ave., became San Antonio's powerhouse mall. Central Park Mall quickly became an ugly after thought for retail at the San perdo/410 interchange. Tenants left, people stop going, it became a ghost town. All that stood was a Sears. But then last year developers bought what was called the best piece of retail land in all of SA (at a very very busy San Pedro and 410 Interchange) and is now building Park North Plaza.

Over three Million square feet of retailers are located in this regional intersection; including North Star Mall, which is anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Foley's and Dillards.

Day time population within two miles is in excess of 123,000 individuals and in excess of 280,000 vehicles per day circulate the Park North site.

Central Park Mall was recently razed and construction has just begun on Park North Plaza.

Well hot damn. So the garages are going to be like in a back alley? If so that is great.

San Antonio is a very beautiful city as well as Austin, which could become a MSA soon if the explosive growth continues.
I hope not. Both are great cities but it would be a shame if they become one metro. Both downtowns are nearly 80 miles apart.
