San Antonio Suburban Housing Update
I created this for another forum but figure it wouldn't hurt to post here. So far I just have a few San Antonio housing developments, the ones that came to me and which I could find information and pictures for, and nothing too far outside SA in other areas of the metro. Please, this is for everyone, don't turn this thread into a "anti-sprawl" argument please discuss the developments and if you dislike or hate this stuff just hit the back arrow bottom on your browser.

I'm surprised no one's commented on the Hills of Castle Rock, a 14-story building way out there and not one peep.

Oh, cool. I had figured it was all single family stuff. Are there any articles/info about it? What hotel brand would be? What's the hotel name and location?

matttwentyeight Aug 4, 2007 4:58 AM

same here... i wouldn't have imagined a 14 floor hotel way in the boondocks... but then again, i would have thought that with the city of san antonio being the 7th largest city in the nation, it would also have buildings of adequate size to go along with that!!!

Jesus, the Hills of CR is really far for a 14 story building out there in the middle of nowhere pretty much.
