Approved by the SA Historic Design and Review Committee. Will be an apartment building built by the same company that just built the Frost Tower. Across the street from the Weston Centre and pretty close to the new Frost Tower building. Will actually be taller than the new Frost building and like the 5th or 6th tallest building in the city, behind the Tower of the Americas, Marriott Rivercenter, Weston Centre, Grand Hyatt, and about as tall as the Tower Life building.

That's nice as there are VERY FEW, if any, residential towers in DTSA, its mostly hotels and office buildings. Having residential buildings will bring more life to downtown.

It will also help the new glass Frost Tower blend in better as right now it stands out as the only non beige /brown tower downtown.

The Thompson Arts building has a lot of glass but only on one side which I find odd.

The area just north of downtown has thousands of units now and more coming online, but until the Broadway road project can focus the street activity most use the river.

I live 10-15 minutes north and every time we go down there we use the river level to get from place to place.

^^ I forgot about that one. Is that project complete yet?
The older USAA tower is also mostly glass but it has a brown tone to it and doesn't stand out as much as Frost Tower does.

The new CPS towers have a brown and glass exterior, they have almost a suburban mid-rise look to it.

It is! I think resident floor plans are almost complete on the interior but the facade is done. Here is a photo I took:

Not sure why 50% of the photo is cut off.

Any change in the downtown skyline is welcome progress.

It's just so dull.

As long as the city doesn't get like the giant cities where there's no visible sun because all the buildings block it out. That wouldn't be cool.

The city requires a "shadow study" of any proposed construction near the Riverwalk to make sure that enough hours of sunlight hit the river level below. So, at least the downtown area around the Riverwalk will be fine.
