More apartments are slated for San Antonio downtown - San Antonio Business Journal

More to come! The development is starting to pickup in our urban core.

"San Antonio’s plan to offer more financial incentives to spur the development of urban housing is attracting new investors. The latest is A.A. Seeligson Jr. River North Ltd., a partnership including San Antonio’s Hixon Properties, which has acquired prime real estate across from the San Antonio Museum of Art and plans to transform the site into a new riverfront residential complex".

“This will be the first housing development along the Museum Reach, and the first project within the River North Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone,” says Deputy City Manager Pat DiGiovanni. “So we think this is a very important development.”

Moderator cut: orphaned No one has openly come out and stated as much, but it appears the city and the developer community are trying to fix the problems in SAISD. I suspect that's why former mayor Ed Garza got himself onto the SAISD school board and ultimately got elected board president. Now the district is doing a search for a new superintendent.

The issues there are being addressed at the top. With a bigger tax base from new apartments, the board might actually be able to make changes and improvements.

Issues there are not fixed yet, but it's a district that's clearly on the mend.

Fact: Bonham Academy downtown regularly draws application from families ALL OVER SAN ANTONIO INCLUDING ALAMO HEIGHTS.

Fact: The BEST private schools in San Antonio are located right around downtown.

Yes, the majority of the public schools still need to improve, but some of your statements are woefully incorrect.

I CHOSE to move from suburbia (1604 area) to inside "the original 36"... and, yes, I have kids.

That's great! It all started when they cleaned up that stretch of the river...it was a mosquito infested, trash littered cesspool for a long time. Was on the southside the other day and saw all the river improvements going on down there. Very impressive! Hopefully, similar projects will line the river down there too someday.

Very positive and yes, hopefully the renaissance of San Antonio extends to other areas too!

BTW this is a map to the original 36 mentioned by Montirob: http://www.sanantonio.gov/historic/D...ap-9-20-10.pdf

Only 36 square miles were within the city limits in 1856.

Neat map! We also made it in - just a couple miles shy.
