What is the city's next Pearl?

DECO District

Lots of opportunity for mixed use development with both affordable and mid-tier apartments, cool shops, arts and a variety of restaurants. It could be tied into the jewel of Woodlawn Lake via walkable paths. It already has cool places like the Woodlawn theater, DECO Pizzeria, Cool Crest, Original Donut Shop, Tip Top Cafe, etc.

Improvements to medical center surroundings

The Pearl, probably the most exciting part of San Antonio right now, offers a good blend of drawing locals to a variety of shops and restaurants as well as tourists who stay in close proximity (downtown). However (here me out), the medical center and UTHSCSA offer an environment unmatched by most parts of the city. With a national draw, UTHSCSA hosts visiting scholars, seminars, MD and PhD students from all across the ...more »

SoCo Style Shopping and Restaurants on Hildebrand

Turn the portion of Hildebrand between San Pedro and Blanco into a Resale Row where there are a variety of resale shops including the current furniture and antique stores but also clothing, tools, thrift stores, etc with hip restaurants and bars mixed in like the SoCo area in Austin. The street would need some parking options and expanded sidewalks and pedestrian friendly crosswalks to make it a very walkable area.

I think there are three main areas where this could happen.

I think there are three main areas where this could happen. 1. Near Alamo Brewery, there is already so much work being put into that side of town and there is so much room for improvement. Since there is nothing else really happening on the east side and property values are low it make sense for this to happen here. Plus there are plenty of existing retail spaces that are move in ready. 2. Hemisfair could be another ...more »

UTSA Village

UTSA Main Campus is home to over 30,000 students. We need a University Village that will create a welcome, pedestrian and bicycle friendly multiuser destination for all of San Antonio. Sustainable housing and restaurants, encouragement of arts and creative businesses with mentoring opportunities and recreation destinations for busy students all fit together to make UTSA Main Campus the creative hub of South Texas.

Let's not replicate the Pearl

I'll start with this - I personally enjoy the Pearl; I am there almost daily because the Local Coffee is the nearest coffee shop to my eastside office. I go to Cured for dinner, browse the Twig on weekends, drink like I'm still an undergrad at La Gloria, I love the Granary, and I'm counting down to Southerleigh's opening. But I don't think that the Pearl redevelopment is something that the city should seek to replicate. ...more »

I'm hoping it's the Perrin Beitel/Nacodoches area

I'm hoping it's the Perrin Beitel/Nacodoches area, aka The Northeast Corridor. This area reminds me of the Pearl/Broadway area looked around 10 years ago. Only time will tell if the city will follow-thru on its revitalization plan. Would be cool to have something like The Pearl outside the loop. Having Toyota Field, Morgan's Wonderland, and Ranger Creek in the area would only sweeten the deal. Submitted by Syllogism19 ...more »
