  1. Congratulations to the GrayStreet team, a fantastic project in use and aesthetic. We need to stand behind thoughtful and visionary developments like these if we are to remain relevant as a world city.

  2. love it. I Noticed in the rendering a whole new Broadway. There is a building across this new project which currently isn’t there so I wonder what that building is. I just hope the city addresses the traffic issues. The corner of this project does have a turning light but the other streets off Broadway do not. This project will definitely bring more traffic as well as the new office building a block away (under construction) and the new SAISD office building (under construction). Does the city have a plan for the street improvements? Does anyone know? Hope they do because the traffic on the Broadway corridor by Pearl to Mulberry takes a lot of patience especially with the bike riders not having a bike lane.

    • It’s the next phase of GrayStreets Lower Broadway development that will extend into the old SAISD properties in Government Hill. It’ll be a large urban development.

  3. As the Chairman for the BOA I am thrilled that we approved this project. As a couple of my fellow board members said, we have for too long had mediocre projects as part of our skyline. San Antonio is a fantastic city to live in and we should strive to encourage these types of projects. When we have people come before us and over and over again praise this project, it is hard to think how anyone could vote against it. I wish to congratulate and the developer and design team for their attention to detail in making my vote an easy one. As Mary Rogers was quoted, “Go for it!”

  5. Who says the COSA doesn’t favor the business community? Could it be that those chamber types were just spewing hyperbole? It seems like this is a good example of the COSA being very good to developers specifically.
