I seriously doubt an impressive postcard of San Antonio is going to be the stimulus for bringing the businesses here that can afford to build your dream city.

Where are you guys getting this stuff? Perception is relative. It can't be a lie to all people. Perception can be altered by many influences, needs and/or desires. Perception can also be very real and accurate.

I think more important for economic/business development is how San Antonio weathered the recession... NOT how many 60-story skyscrapers we have. Now go back to photoshopping your skyscraper fantasies for this town.

SA's DT looks like an outdated kitchen. SA should be shame to let little Austin DT show how progressive their city is.
