I do like San Antonio: Southtown, Pearl Brewery District and riverwalks downtown: kind of like ole Disneyland vibe of 60's.

The River Walk is not part of the skyline!

San Antonio's skyline is dense and adding even more density of 150-350 feet buildings. Could it use at 500+ footer, sure but i'd take density of height because it makes for a better pedestrian experience at the ground level.

A lot denser than Phoenix and San Antonio for sure, and maybe even Dallas, too.

^^ Good ole topper, comes to San Jose's rescue every time.

Regarding the new Frost Tower in downtown SA, I still think it looks out of place during the day... not so much like the monstrosity that is Devon Energy tower in OKC but it still stands out. SA needs a few more modern glass skyscrapers of comparable size for it to blend in better during the day amid all the brown and beige buildings.

At night I think it blends in just fine.

The Frost Tower looks very Dallas.

Frost and several new residential towers were accounted for when discussed about density of downtown skyline.
