Are they ever going to do anything with that dreadful derelict Insurance Bldg across from the bus station? Thanks for the pictures! I really like downtown San Antonio!

I think when the downtown hits another "boom" that thing will sell faster than britney spears' purloined unmentionables!

Anyway, can anyone make up a "proposed" and "approved" skyline? Pleeeeeeeease?

YES!

Very cool. Great pictures there, Schertz.

So is La Cascada II finished? It looks like it's completed, maybe just inside work?


This was my favorite.

^ That will looks awesome, though. I didn't even think about it, but it'll be one of those cool skyscraper views in downtown.

Thanks. And man, the Weston Centre looks a bit tall in some of those shots. I know a few are sort of confusing since it's closer to the camera than the Marriott, but geez, it looks taller that 444 feet in a few of those.

Those are fantastic! Thanks Schertz! Sorry I hadn't seen them 'til now! I was in the same area and took some pics as well over break. I'll have to post them soon. Right on, Boris--love that south TX sunshine. I just came back to Bozeman where it's snowing yet again
