Note: I am not saying that the downtown is bland, it's one of the most vibrant I have seen for a city its size. It's just the skyscrapers are disappointing looking and much are an eyesore (Both Marriot Buildings and now Grand Hyatt)...

I'm hoping that the Vidorra under construction will bring something new (being tall and slender), however it's toward to eastern side of downtown across I-35 from downtown.
I really agree,all other cities are bypassing SA and the city leader just sit there and worry about who is going to be the next Rey Feo

Are you serious? We currently have the most progressive city leaders since HemisFair '68. Massive revitalization efforts are being undertaken to transform downtown. The reason behind only short structures being constructed lies in the hands of overtly conservative organizations with a lot of control when it comes to construction in the CBD.

BTW I have heard of Rey Feo, but have no clue what it is. I am going to assume it is a Hispanic tradition in SA. Care to fill me in?

El Rey Feo is one of the Fiesta kings. If you're like me and don't "do" Fiesta, it doesn't register on the radar.

Rey Feo is part of the Fiesta tradition.

Now why would you assume it is an hispanic tradition?

Well, that's a stupid reason to assume anything.

Because all San Antonio seems to celebrate is Hispanic traditions.

No not all but since a majority of people here come from Hispanic decent it might seem that way.
