Oh Okay..I get confused sometimes with some of the roads around there because now they're extending Kyle Seale Parkway inside Loop 1604 past the new high school so I get turned around.

Astronomical the way it's being built up isn't it? It's all us darn Californians moving out here you know...
BTW, that new High School does anyone have any info on it? The local one is O'Connor and let me tell you that sucker is full! Actually so's the elementary so I'm just going to assume the middle school is too. The elementary is so full that kids can't get in even if they have a sibling there. Forget trying to get in if your kid is already past kindergarden and if your kid is starting there in kindergarden you have to enroll right qiuck when enrollment starts! Maybe the builders out here were counting on all of us paying for private school and busing our kids somewhere else...

You're right..it's crazy! I'm actually one of those that grew up in SA and went to school in that part of town back in the 70s and 80s and I remember when 1604 was a two lane road with stop signs at most of the major intersections (yes, even Bandera Rd)! And Marshall High covered the whole northwest area from near UTSA all the way around 1604 to Potranco Rd near where SeaWorld is now. It was like that up until at least the mid 80s.

The new high school, Brandeis High, should open by 2008-2009 and will pretty much take away a lot of areas from O'Connor High and Clark High. I have a friend at Northside that helps to plan where new schools will be placed and she says that while it's still too early, she thinks the boundaries for Brandeis will roughly run from just east of Helotes/Bandera near Hausman and 1604 to past Kyle Seale and UTSA towards I-10W. The official boundaries should be revealed after the first of the year.

Thanks for the info! My dd will be starting kindergarden next fall so we're a long way off but still, the schools out here are enormous and I can't believe they're already packed! I talked to a teen in O'Connor last week and she said there were about 6000 kids there. I had 4000 at my high school and I though we were huge. Obviously not compared to Texas....

This is the land UTSA just bought:

http://xs109.xs.to/xs109/06473/utsaland.PNG (broken link)

Main plans for it are a large sports park with a new baseball stadium, basketball arena and a new football stadium. As well as more parking structures for students and housing.

Plans call for the Kyle Seale gap inside 1604 to be filled as well as De Zavala extended all the way to Kyle Seale, the new high school will be located at the intersection of Kyle Seale and De Zavala Rd.

Also, there are rumors that UTSA Dr. will be extended all the way to Kyle Seale at 1604.

Also, I'm not sure if there are current plans for the land at the northwest and northeast corners of Kyle Seale Rd and 1604, but if nothing is planned now I'd really suspect that once UTSA built on that land what they envision, that the land across 1604 would be turned into retail/entertainment and dense housing of some kind.

This is basically how it will shape up for Klye Seale, De Zavala, and UTSA Drive.

Great maps, thanks! It'll make it easier for me to get to Costco when they hook up UTSA and Kyle Seale but then again the traffic will probably be insane too.

Well, I work at UTSA, so I wish that land would be used to build a giant parking lot, with space for shuttle buses to get in and out to take us to the campus. Finding a parking spot at UTSA is almost an Olympic event.

I live in the area and saw a yellow rezoning sign at the 1604-Kyle Seale intersection. I know in the past I found on the web all of the rezoning cases and the city would show the purposed specific use of the property. I looked on the net after seeing the rezoning sign, but couldn't find anything.

I do know one thing for sure, they need some additional lights coming out of Sonoma Ranch. In the morning there are at least 50 cars in line waiting to get out onto Kyle Seale and it takes a good 15 minutes just to get out of Sonoma Ranch.
