Yes, IKEA would be nice! And please, not another strip mall with nail shops, banks, laundry mats, mattress stores, etc. I know that seems to be the norm for San Antonio but there are other folks who would appreciate something with more class. Also, let’s not build another “Forum” there.

The RIM is better but San Antonio is still missing some great stores and restaurants like Crate&Barrel, IKEA, Fry’s, a 3rd Whole Foods (new WF will open in Stone Oak), another Central Market, Trader Joe’s, Lego Store, The Great Indoors, Houston’s, Corner Bakery Café, etc. You get the idea.

I doubt any of those are going in either Bulverde Marketplace or any other building at Bulverde and 1604. Good or bad, they are going to stick to a formula that's working for them.

The demographics of the area don't work for that. This area is not nearly as upscale as the area around The Rim. Especially to the south.

If we're guessing, my guess is that it will initially have Target (not Super), a nail place, a Darden restaurant (Red Lobster, Olive Garden, etc.), a discount haircutter and a frozen yogurt shop. Basically similar to the strip center that's across 1604 from Rolling Oaks Mall, but with Target.

I know. I was just dreaming and making a wish list. I am afraid you are right. Those stores don’t suit your typical SA locals unfortunately. Until SA gets more transplants that would be ideal for those stores, it is still the same old routine for SA.

Reminds of me of the saying, "Texas, you're guarding the wrong River".

Does something like this help or hurt home values in the area? I'm right near Redland/Bulverde.
