The Source: Will Downtown Feel Like A Downtown?

source-san_antonio-night1.jpg

Big changes may be coming to downtown. The first skyscraper in 25 years, a new high-end development that would remove the blighted Solo Serve building, and a Houston Street that is making a comeback are all bringing life to an area that has served as a thoroughfare for tourists heading from San Fernando Cathedral to the Alamo. 

Will San Antonio see the downtown renewal that is has dreamed about for so long?

Guests:

  • Ben Olivo, Real Estate Reporter and former writer on the Downtowner Blog for the San Antonio Express-News
  • Lori Houston, Director of the Center City Development department at the City of San Antonio
