Cool Crest was affordable housing in the seventies. You could buy a lot with electricity and water. Buy a mobile home either new or used and live there very reasonably and not far from stores and downtown. You could eventually build a home and haul off the mobile one. Or buy a better one. I don't think you can do that anywhere else anymore

Any other new construction projects or rumors for the area? I've seen land clearing at 1604 & Military and 1604 & Marbach (apparently a gas station). Anyone have a good rundown of these and any future projects that will actually happen? Any new projects on Potranco outside 1604?

Thanks!

I've seen some construction digging happening on Potranco and Dugas. Curious on this project as well.

I asked a worker about 1604 and Marbach and they said it was a CVS, so not sure about the gas station

I thought they were just expanding the road?

I agree with both PPs. We've been here 2 years now. I was so excited to come home to TX (I grew up in central TX), and I can't wait to leave SA. This is the trashiest city I've lived in. I don't understand why people don't take more pride in this city.

There are no construction cones out or work crew. It's on the actual land that has the Potranco Shopping center with the Church's, Pet's Barn, etc. They've also fenced in this area and there is a contractor sign out.

Oh, my mistake!! I was thinking a little farther down the road, right before 151.

Whatever it is I am sure it'll be tagged up in no time at all. It is pissing me off that there is graffitti all up and down Potranco especially by the wall in front of Stevens by the strip mall. That is just one area. I used to see police all the time. Now, not so much. Not that police really do much in this city anyhow in reference to tagging.
