It’s an apartment building with affordable units. If you’re not planning on leaving there I don’t see why you would even be bothered by the look of the units. Just appreciate the fact that downtown proper is getting residential units and units the average joe can afford. This will only benefit the urban core in the long run.

Agreed, this is a start. When you build a mass of people living downtown, you can then expand on the amenities. I would not expect for a developer to build anything but the least common denominator for units that are intended for “way below” market rate rents.
When demand is there for premium finishes, they will be available. There is no reason to have upscale finishings for a clientele who can’t afford them.

There are plenty of complexes with premium finishes scattered throughout the urban core. There needs to be more affordable priced units so downtown doesn’t become some lame homogeneous socioeconomic wasteland where one group of people can live and enjoy.

That’s what this building will help provide.

Agree completely. Clay Street in the Lone Star neighborhood is becoming an expensive street to live on with homes that have very high-end finishings.

​310 Clay St # 11 in Lone Star, San Antonio

The Clars, Thompson, Floodgate will be very high end. There are a dozen small townhome developments throughout the urban core that are very highend.

Signage approval request for The '68's parking garage. It looks like they're planning some hanging vegetation on it as well (rendering).
