SAN ANTONIO │ 2100 Broadway │ 12 FLOORS │ Proposed

Seems like every month we are getting another project, this is starting to become the norm.

Oh wow, I like this one too!

JACKinBeantown Jun 9, 2018 12:42 AM

Nice. Not astounding, but nice. It appears to have ground level retail too, so that's a plus.

Jeez, I am so over four-sided polygons with right angles :maddown:

It does have ground floor retail.

Same here.

Wow! Nice looking building downtown SA is on the move!

It’s good to see so much development popping up in the lower broadway area. I bet in 5-10 years it will be a much livelier place.

Great look!!:cheers:

I LIKE IT!!!!:cheers:

I’d fast track those numbers by half. With the Pearl already creating a busy environment, you have everything being built plus the massive Grey Street development that will be on Broadway and extend into Govermwnr Hill.

Wow! Yet another winner for SA!

Yep. Another in the line of “this wouldn’t look out of place on 410.”

Ah and what a shock, another masterpiece delivered by Overland Partners.

Combining this with their Hemisfair design, they’re successfully taking San Antonio back to 1994.

All aboard the uninspiring and bland train.

Then again, maybe I’m being too harsh and their clients just want generic crap.

It's ugly. Don't like it one bit.

JACKinBeantown Jun 10, 2018 12:05 PM

I don't think it's ugly, but it's not going to win any design awards either. It has red brick which I like, and relatively decent window design, plus the ground floor retail. I'll take it.

Well, it's being planned in an area that isn't exactly urban, although, it's far from being as bad as some of the places around 410, which I was shocked to see where it was single family residential "house, house, house" and then *boom* parking lot/garage and 80s office building. To me, the transition in those places is what's least satisfying.

This is far better than that, especially since there's no ugly detached parking garage or parking lot. There is still a parking garage, but at least it's attached to the building and more importantly, there's retail. That's something the high rises and midrises around 410 can only dream about.

Design wise, it's not a work of art, but it's far from being bad. I might even have to say I like it better than 1603 Broadway.

Me too. 1603 Broadway is my 11th favorite building planned or U/C in San Antonio.
