CBDs form the way they do because they're meant to centralize and house a white collar workforce. Bank towers, municipal towers, etc..

San Antonio's downtown doesn't have such need, and with a classic building stock, they don't need to put up tall condo towers. That, and having your tallest building be a condo tower smacks of fakery.
