It's been along time since I heard anything regarding this subject. Will there be development outside Loop 1604 at Kyle Seale Parkway?

Unlikely that the trees get left. The Seale family still owns both tracts, so the "silver lining" is that it will be the next "cycle" until the site merits development. But once it does, the site is vested from the most current tree ordinance.

Get ready for more asphalt (and chain retail!!!).

I sure do hope all of you are right. We don't need another view of shopping centers and asphalt. Leave the trees and nature alone as it is, which is the natural GO GREEN!!!

Keep in mind this large piece of land is frontage to 1604, near La Cantera, directly across from the future UTSA athletics stadiums, and surrounded by mostly newer homes. I don't think anyone can buy into a massive brand new subdivision outside 1604 and preach that we need to save trees.

I would like to see an urban mixed-use development. Retail, office space, and residences constructed while preserving some of the land for a park. It could be ideal for student housing, college targeted retail, and related office space. It would be a very walkable space and being so close to campus would help create a more urban feel to the area.

That's really about the best you could hope for. It will more than likely be a big box shopping center.

The real problem is the continued development of subdivisions further and further outside 1604. This increases the demand for retail along 1604. It really isn't going to be long before Helotes and Boerne boast populations over 50,000 and San Antonio looks a lot more like Houston.

This is absolutely correct! Unfortunately, many folks do just that. It's one of the strangest things...

Does anyone know the name of the gated neighborhood that is opening soon that is to the right on Kyle Seale as you go north past Grandview? I saw the name on the entrance but i can't remember it. Any info on the builder?
