While the skyline can't boast for height (although height can be relative)...I think it makes up for it by being the most interesting and possessing the most character of all the TX skylines.

San Antonio certainly has a lot to offer. The downtown--unlike the downtown areas of many cities--attracts people. I proffer two examples: the Riverwalk and the Alamo. It does have a character unlike any other city.

Well, it has three 400+ foot buildings. Not too shabby. Still fewer than most cities its size though, but as it's been established, San Antonio's downtown is different than most.

Actually 5 structures well over 400 feet and several 300-400 footers.

Oops, I missed the Hyatt. And I wasn't counting the ToA.

No reason to start a new thread:

Not saying it will be skyscrapers, but from this story that was posted on mysa.com, I get the feeling that we might be in for a tiny building boom if competition starts lowering costs of construction.

I think we can expect some skyline changes in the next decade. Not necessarily too tall, but maybe some good infill.

Well we always still have Tower of the Americas and the Weston Centre...which looks way taller than 444' to me but that might just be because of the buildings around it
