San Antonio has some great infill, and great preserved historical architecture. I would love to see some more talls, and residential built though.

Not so bad.

Phoenix doesn't have a huge skyline but at least it's got something. I just saw it in the opening of 1998 movie Psycho and it has changed quite a bit from then. It could definitely be a lot better though.

Here's a pic of one of those planes everyone's complaining about.

Phoenix's is small but do you notice any southwestern cities with huge skylines and large downtowns. Nope.

Phoenix is kinda "limp" in terms of major CBDs, but you know what, it doesn't need a huge CBD to be successful and it's already well over 4 million people, so clearly something is working. It's a business town, but before that it's a recreation and retirement town, so maybe that's a key difference. PLUS, in this day and age many companies can telecommute and don't need to be located right next to their clients/vendors/competitors, etc. They can locate anywhere, and prices are cheapest outside of the CBD. LA and Phoenix get it, the rest of the country is slowly doing the same thing. I think that needs to change again though because the value of face-to-face communication is priceless and computers and technology can't replace "real" business interactions. JMO!!!
