And I don't want to live out there in Stone Oak. What is there for $1200 to $1500 in terms of luxury apts near Medical Center? near Trinity University?

The Preserve on Fredericksburg

That's on Fredericksburg. Looks like they range from $1050 to $1750.

Looks really nice, interestingly I have a news clipping about the Preserve written when it was being built and I thought it seemed to be unique and really stand out from other apartments in this area.

Have to disagree with the Meridian being called "luxury". When we first moved here, we actually preferred moving into a luxury apartment; wasn't interested in buying a home in this market. We looked ALL over...got to see two apartments in the Meridian. They both had terrible odors and were in bad need of updating.
Would love to have moved into Eilan, but they did not have three bedrooms, so we bought a home in W.Hills (wish we had not, but that's for another thread).
To piggy-back on an earlier thread, I wonder why builders/developers don't cater to higher income, empty nesters who might prefer the mobility of renting. You would think that might catch on with what happened in housing. Seems there would be a market for it.

Agreed. The Meridian was luxe... 15 years ago. It's gold fixtures, old carpeting and tiny floorplans are antiquated by today's standard. What's worse is that they're charging market rents for what are poorly kept units. The market for luxe rentals is happening in this city, just slowly. You can find some truly beautiful rentals Downtown and in Southtown ($1700-$5500/mo) if you know where to look and they include the right finish-out to warrant the higher price.

This city could use a change in thinking that just because you're renting doesn't mean you're not willing to pay for something nice. Lots of folks with money to spend who don't want to lay down roots by buying.

My suggestion: Look into The Bushnell. I lived there years ago and it's one of the most interesting and old glamor buildings in the city. Getting in can be tough, as some are owned, some are rented.

Yeah well I don't want to lay down roots because I may have to move from here to Austin to Houston to here to....etc etc etc in the next decade or two or three.

I liked how the Preserve seemed homey, with vegetable garden plots available etc that has to be the only luxury apt in San Antonio with something like that. I hate golf courses if I see an apt complex overlooking a big fat golf course I will become very angry.

What about the Abbey?

The only problem with those is, they are directly under power lines. From the outside they look very nice though
