None taken.

I guess what I don't understand is how a high-rise "wouldn't work" with this development? It can work with ANY development.

A couple of towers with some elements included to provide proper scale to pedestrians or retail can ALWAYS make sense.

I just have to remind myself that this is still suburban San Antonio. The sad part is that our CBD continues to leak out to these types of buildings, these scattered developments around the periphery where you park in the basement of your building, ride the elevator to your office and then hop in the car to run across I-10 for lunch. In my opinion, this is not anything to be proud of...

Sprawl is sprawl.
