you are probably right...

i mean, couldn't they have built some sparkling 15 story towers and charged more per Sq ft than any other building in the city? i mean, imagine how easy that would have been to sell... knowing how the hq search goes, people are looking for a building that grabs attention, is close to amenities, and is near corporate housing stock. they could have gone big and succeeded. instead, they'll take up gobs of land and charge what everyone else does...sigh.

i guess san antonio is just not mature enough as a business-hub to justify the "risks" in building something more grandiose.
