Here's the site plan with elevations.

The heights for the taller building are:

188 feet to the pyramidal roof

181 feet to the mechanical roof

168 feet to the main roof

152 feet to the 12th (highest occupied floor)

-

The 2nd shorter tower is connected to the taller one by a 5-story podium

The heights for the shorter tower are:

117 feet to the mechanical roof

104 feet to the main roof

88 feet to the 8th (highest occupied floor).

-

I had to use a sheet of paper to measure the pyramidal roof since it didn't have a height listed for it. There is a detailed section of that part of the roof on page 20 that I used to measure it. The mechanical roof height is 181 feet as shown in the elevations, and I measured up from there. I marked it off and measured my spacing against the heights they provided for some of the detail below the roof to the right on page 20, and I came up with 7 feet. My marks came up just past that the line above the 6 foot section below the roof. Above that 6 foot section, is a 4 foot section. I marked that 4 foot section off and divided it into quarters. The top line I had measured equaled one foot according to that. So, the pyramidal roof rises 7 feet above the mechanical roof. So, the height of the building should be 188 feet. That number, if you remember, is the same as the FAA permit that I found last July.

10 or 12 stories

I thought this was a 10 story building. Is it a 12 story building now?

I haven't found one yet. I'm also looking for one for the JMJ Towers. Unfortunately, too, the HDRC files only go back to 2015, after that they're not online anymore, and you have to do an open records request to view the physical copies. Oh, how I wish I could do that. A smorgasbord of San Antonio building heights for the older buildings. It would help clear up some of the mystery about the heights for the Marriott Rivercenter and Weston Centre.

The JMJ Towers has yet been under any kind of review. I think that is a notion many here believe to be true, but it hasn't gone through any type of review. There hasn't even been an official design yet, sadly.

Looking Northeast

Here's a quick shot from my phone looking Northeast toward the construction site of the new Credit Human Corporate Office Tower.

Nice. I'd like to cordially request that someone(s) in San Antonio go take some pictures at the site. Maybe some other sites too... there are several of them!

I'm there every weekend, and only noticed this site to past weekend. It's really quite something. I was shocked by the process...its huge! I haven't really paid much attention to this project, but was shocked by how big the site area is.

That’s not true at all. It may not have rained as much as the Valley, where it flooded, but it did rain last week.

If you want to call .71 inches for the full month rain, then I guess it rained. Mostly drizzle worthy only of dirtying the car.

You claimed it hadn’t rained in week and I simply stated it rained last week, regardless of how much it rained at the airport, because it did rain last week. Some areas heavier than others.
