Spread This Idea


Houston, Commerce, or Market St Corridor

My idea to improve this place

Create a permanent outdoor mall by blocking off streets for about a one mile stretch, similar to the 16th street mall in Denver, CO.

So that people could... 

So that people could easily move about the different business establishments and create more connectivity among other places of interest including Main Plaza, the Riverwalk, Rivercenter Mall, etc.

Because I want San Antonio to be...

a place that is more inviting to the local population. People need to have a primary reason to come downtown, and be distracted to stay and hang out. This magnetism will attract the foot traffic needed to spur development, and the charm needed to spur local housing demand. (flickr photo by Spacing Magazine )
