Thanks for the pics. It's a beautiful building, and hopefully more to come.

Wonderful pictures, Kevin!


Anyone else notice how dark the Grand Hyatt has been in recent weeks? San Antonio has the prettiest skyline at night, but it's just been very dark lately (some other buildings, too).

Those aren't mine, so I wouldn't do that. I just came across them on a meteorologist's Facebook page.

It might have something to do with the crickets this time of year. I know that some buildings in Austin go dark around this time of year to discourage crickets from their rooftops and balconies.

Here's a quick shot I took of the Garage from Travis st. I'm actually ok with how the garage turned out now that it's completed (even though this isn't the retail side). I'm gonna have to take more photos from the retail and San Pedro river side when I get the chance.

Spectacular image! I'm going to save that one for myself. You can even see that the gym has been completed.

(like button for the picture, PDG91)

For a garage it looks kinda nice I guess, but it still looks like a garage. The building itself is spectacular.

I’m still salty it’s detached from the building, but it looks nice.

Has anyone heard what retail is going in or any mumblings? They want high end so I’d be curious if they’d bring something new to SA.

My money would be on restaurants, that seems to be the only thing downtown that does well. But who knows! Maybe this is the rebirth of actual retail downtown.

I hope it is. I want to see some good restaurants and at least one unique or new retailer there.

I'm not too sure, but I did find this article on the rivard report. It says that some frost employees have already moved into the office and they plan to open the financial center by July 1st. Over 2100 frost employees from the old building will have moved in by that date.

I love the Bart Simpson meme. It could be worse. People first thought the Frost Bank Tower in Austin looked like a pair of nose hair trimmers. lol

Now San Antonio just needs the rest of the Simpson family. Homer, of course, would be a domed building with a few stray antennas up there, and Marge, well, that building would no doubt have a spire that cheated its way into record territory.
