A four-story tower fronts onto St. Mary's Avenue. Two 2-story entry portals open onto St. Mary's providing street level pedestrian access through the site to the San Antonio River Walk beyond. Three towers of 3-stories each are oriented perpendicular to the River Walk and terminate at the river's edge. The towers form urban courtyards in keeping with the cities rich tradition of creating public spaces while allowing public access to the River Walk.

Where on St. Mary's is this going to be located? It looks good from what I can see.

That location is currently an empty field here. You can see frequent updates on the progress of that part of the River Walk taken from one street south (McCullough) of Brooklyn. Ought to be pretty darn nice when it is done.

It will be nice if they can keep all the junkies and bums out of there. There is a hobo junction in the woods around that area. Hopefully they will relocated to the homeless center they are building on the other side of downtown.

Not bad, this is mixed-use, I'm guessing? Also, aren't the height allowances higher the closer you get to the river, or do I have that backwards?

I don't mean to sound cynical, I really don't. But this is going to wind up a Sheraton or a Marriott time share, if it wasn't intended to from the beginning. I hope I am wrong.

As others have already said, it's a striking design. I hope it's not time-share property...

As long as downtown San Antonio refuses to take the existing stock of old buildings and turn them into viable living spaces (ie, turning the old Antiques Mall on Houston into another damned Marriott), all we can rely on are new mixed-use properties like this one to strengthen the live/work/play concept.

I'll keep my fingers crossed
