I agree. I'm still hoping that an artist like Rolando Briseno or Bill FitzGibbons can get their hands on that sucker and turn it into the tallest sculpture in the world.

These are from two weeks ago. Sticks are going vertical now.

I didn't realize the garage was going to be taller than the hotel next door.

Why on earth is the parking garage three stories taller than the apartments?!

Improvement... 1st floor: retail / 2nd floor: parking / 3-8 floors: apartments.

Drove by this site this weekend. I was surprised to see that it was wood framed.

Ah yes. A garage only the HDRC could love.

Hoping that it will be covered up somehow?

The parking garage is there to stay, I know it's hideous right now but way until the entire project is complete. Plus I imagine the garage will have some great views of downtown San Antonio.

Tangentially related, but that section of river between Villita and Cesar Chavez could really use an upgrade.
