Nice update, NBTX11. I'm really getting excited about being in town next month. Can't wait! I hope the weather cooperates as I want to take pics too.

^^possibly on the W hotel (if built) but that's a reach even if the project gets the green light. Vidorra and Vistana are in the works though.

I'm hoping to be in San Antonio on Sunday. If I am, and the weather cooperates, you can bet I'll take some pictures of it. Really looking forward to it.

According to WOAI, over 60% of the 94 units at The Broadway have been sold with the starting price of $580,000. Construction is supposed to begin this fall.

I think what the author of the story meant was that 60% of the 94 units are under contract. In any case, that's really good!

So summerfest started in 2007? That is why it all of a suddenly showed up? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoo

Perhaps this has helped:

And its downtown has turned around big time in the last 10 years I have been going there. Lots had to do with them making the downtown river the focus....a lesson they DID learn from San Antonio:

You have to think this only helps the chance for an even better highrise project at the site across from Alamo Stadium. The small piece of land Koontz-McCombs spent 4 million on.

True... But, let's see how quickly those refundable deposits turn into contracts. And from there, let's see how many, and at what pace, those contracts head to closing. Number of closings are a true indicator regarding the health of the condo market.

I think this is a good area of SA for future residential development...sandwiched in-between the Quarry and Brackenridge Park areas of town.

I was in town last Saturday (7/7) and managed to capture the Grand Hyatt construction progress from multiple angles. I have posted these in a few other threads too. Enjoy!

Fantastic shots. And lol, I was in San Antonio today! Will post pics soon, later tomorrow I hope. It looks like they either raised one of the cranes or else shortened one. In your pics it shows them doing something with a section of tower crane. Well, today there were doing the same thing, I couldn't see exactly what they were doing. When I first got there they had a section of tower shaft either about to be added or removed to one of the cranes, and they had another piece hanging from the boom. Later when I went back out it looked like they had shortened the crane by several sections and there were sections of tower crane along Commerce Street.

They also had two pickups near there that said something about "tower crane services" or something. I wonder if they were having mechanical malfunctions or something? I'll have to check out my pics and compare them with your's, I had just assumed they were raising the crane(s), but then it seemed shorter.

Actually, the two cranes have been jacked up to a height around 550' each, both taller than the Marriott Rivercenter!
