I was looking at the latest numbers for San Antonio and it's clear that this city is growing for real. I think this city is big enough for a second downtown. Los Angeles have Century City and Houston have like four or five different buisness districts. Do anybody ever think that will happen here? Let me know ok.

San Antonio does have many areas with clusters of high rise office buildlings , giving it more than one skyline.But a new legitimate downtown, isn't Cibolo,Tx building one?

There are people out there who will tell you that the Medical Center/I-10 corridor is not only SA's second downtown, but its "real" downtown. 410 north from San Pedro to Nacogdoches also has a high concentration of businesses, including SWBC, SACU, Broadway Bank. . . oh, and Taco Cabana!

I'm not saying it won't happen, but I don't think there is any one particular place in the Alamo City outside of the CBD that would qualify as a potential concentrated "city center" that's going up. Right now, all you guys have there is downtown for right now.

If there is a second business district to downtown it would be the San Pedro/410 area. It is geographically the center if you measure developement from the north edge to the south edge of the city. Cibolo...hahahahaha!
