Just a question from us newcomers, is that the bad section this thread is talking about? In the yellow...

Yah,

It is going to take a decade or more for this to come to fruition.

Until they do to 'Camelot' and 'The Glen' etc what they did to Roosevelt High School.. you will still have the same problems in that area.

Ignore this!

There is NO demand for what is being offered in those 'dream plans'. There is a glut of already empty homes in and around San Antonio.., so let's build 5,000 more??? Genius!

Not to mention a glut of EMPTY office space.

Yah.,. perfect time to build sprawling office towers!!

NOT!

The project will need some time to develop. Chances are the final product, in ten years or so.., will look nothing like what is in these renderings.

Neighborhoods take time to heal. This area has had an open wound for about 15 years now. Started with gang shootings at local malls, bus stops and the implosion of the high school.

Give it ten years and this has a shot.

The others are pipe dreams here and speak from absolute inexperience and are relying on their hopes rather than facts and reality.

There is no demand for office space. No demand for additional housing.

Very little credit out there, hence, no developer in their right mind is going to even open up this proposal for years.
