An area of town need not have an 'industry' to support its population. It's why commuting is so popular in San Antonio... You can live in one place and make your money in another. What it needs, and is getting, are living resources for folks who want to be here.

This 'bubble' you speak of will not burst within 5 years: There's already too much money and infrastructure that you don't even know about in place to keep that from happening. The industry supporting Downtown and Southtown (as well as The Pearl) are locals, but more importantly, there's a lot of tourist money at play. That's not going away anytime soon. Furthermore, the expansion of the Riverwalk was a master-planned project, hooking together neighborhoods that are ripe for urbanization and expansion.


I'm sure people said the same thing about Stone Oak when it was created in the early '80s.

The Pearl folks are fighting with its developers over parking.

This could be a torpedo that sinks the whole project.

I could say you have zero basis for such a terrible "prediction" but the. Again today is 12/21/12. It's just fitting you'd make that prediction on this day.

Not sure if you misread, but that's not the case at all. The rezoning was approved. It's done. This development will happen. Well, as long as they have their funding. But bottom line, there's no torpedoing of this development.

And it's stuff like this that makes me love San Antonio and possibly stay after Graduation. The level of growth in this city is just amazing.
