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.

Traffic barricades

Whenever there is an event at the Alamodome -- which is frequently -- traffic barricades are put up that block the intersections at Cesar Chavez and Labor Street, Indianola Street, and the alley at Hemisview Apartments.

Airport

With projected growth a 2nd airport should be considered. Austin has the iH35 covered, current airport has the Northside, so the obvious location site should be South San Antonio.

 

The former Kelly AFB & surrounding area would be a good area flat needs business development and job growth.

 

We can connect these areas with all of the airports mentioned thru the use of high speed rail.

More development into downtown

The city should be investing as much as they can to build downtown. A great downtown will put San Antonio on the map and make the entire SA community better.

UTSA Village
