So I imagine the exterior of this should look pretty close to finished by now (but I wouldn't know because nobody has posted a recent photo).

I think the whole top half of the building still needs facade work

Actually, work has been completely stalled due to a minor issue.

County Investigates Ceiling Collapse
Second-Floor Ceiling Fell Friday At Cadena Reeves Justice Center
Simon Gutierrez, KSAT 12 News Reporter

POSTED: Monday, April 12, 2010
UPDATED: 6:51 pm CDT April 12, 2010

SAN ANTONIO -- On the first business day after a ceiling collapse at the Cadena Reeves Justice Center expansion project, engineers combed the damaged area, looking for clues that might explain the ceiling's failure.

Read entire report......

I took the wrong angle. Oh well.
It sure changes the streetscape along Nueva

Now we just need the Fed Courthouse built and our "Civic Center" built and it'll really look different.
Didn't know where else to post it, but here is the garage on Flores.

And yes, Arturo Pro, we know, we need more skyscrapers.

It is nice. Perfect "San Antonio" building. If we had 250 of these in downtown I'd be thrilled

(not literally, of course)

Its not a bad looking building. Of course 10 more floors would have made it even better, but it is what it is. It matches the other buildings around it...

It actually looks great in person and adds some color to that part of Downtown. Although only 10 stories, it really makes an impact on the skyline when viewing from the west.

It looks great! I wish the front entrance could have been a little more "bam" though.

Agreed, like when viewing from the UTSA DT campus

Why didnt they clad it the same as its baby brother to the north? SA has a full range of very dark buildings already. Images when it rains who dark and dull its gonna look. Am I being over critical? Well something is better than nothing I guess.
