Thanks for posting this, Insomniac. The most amazing thing to me about this are the electric trolleys. Too bad most of the people in the city who could benefit from widespread light-rail will never see the inside of this place.

It's also somewhat surprising that this developer picked SA as the location for his first mixed-used development. But hey, I'll take it!

The trolley takes you from the chapel through the apartments and hotel into the retail center back into the apartments and then stops just south of the amphitheater and vice versa.

I see you posted a longer version of the article in another forum, which explains a little bit more about the company's motivations for building in SA.

Yeah, you can't post an entire article on CD. It's against the rules so I always summarize it as best I can.

Man, as fast as this intersection/corridor is filling up, it would really be nice if some of these developers put up some cash to subsidize the expansion of I-10/1604 and/or the interchange, which was badly overloaded 5-7 years ago. Granted, the money might not ever be used for that purpose, as it would probably be swallowed by the bureaucratic monster that is state gov't, but it would at least be a good gesture on the developer's part.

If you were a developer, do you honestly think you would put some cash up for road projects? I'm thinking no.

I wonder what the upscale grocery company is. I don't see HEB, Sun Harvest, Central Market, and I can't remember the other one, as upscale. Maybe someone new is coming to town?
