what are the cranes for? the convention center hotel?

Are they ever going to do anything with that dreadful derelict Insurance Bldg across from the bus station? Thanks for the pictures! I really like downtown San Antonio!

I think when the downtown hits another "boom" that thing will sell faster than britney spears' purloined unmentionables!

Anyway, can anyone make up a "proposed" and "approved" skyline? Pleeeeeeeease? :)

I've heard that the Alteza Condo's are all sold out...can anyone else find anything or confirm this?

Very cool. Great pictures there, Schertz.

So is La Cascada II finished? It looks like it's completed, maybe just inside work?

This was my favorite.

^ That will looks awesome, though. I didn't even think about it, but it'll be one of those cool skyscraper views in downtown.

Cascada II is not quite finished....there is still a little outside work goin on.

KevinFromTexas Dec 27, 2006 10:39 PM

Thanks. And man, the Weston Centre looks a bit tall in some of those shots. I know a few are sort of confusing since it's closer to the camera than the Marriott, but geez, it looks taller that 444 feet in a few of those.

Good pictures! I can see one of my apartment's windows in this one.

Hey does anyone know how tall the tower life building is to the top of its antenna? Im guessing 550'-650'?

Boris Jan 9, 2007 2:50 AM

Nice sunshine in 12-06. Thx for the pics.

Boquillas Jan 11, 2007 2:48 AM

Those are fantastic! Thanks Schertz! Sorry I hadn't seen them 'til now! I was in the same area and took some pics as well over break. I'll have to post them soon. Right on, Boris--love that south TX sunshine. I just came back to Bozeman where it's snowing yet again :yuck:

554' I think.

I've heard a lot of different heights for the Tower Life Building with its antenna.

This website lists heights of the buildings with their antennae.
