Spread This Idea

Where

All buildings downtown

My idea to improve this place

Allow some color! Every building downtown is brown or tan. That is a reflection of a dull city. Destroy old buildings and create new modern and a lively structure with glass, steal, or even wood

So that people could... 

see that San Antonio is NOT a dull city but has great potential

Because I want San Antonio to be...

a lively downtown....

This is not a good idea. These buildings are historic and add to the beauty of downtown. It was a terrible idea when the rebuilt the old Walgreens on Houston and this idea too is TERRIBLE

True, there are many historic buildings downtown... however, there are also many unused buildings that are not serving any purpose. Demolish those buildings and make for room for new and creative buildings.

I agree with the first three words of this blog...then it starts going downhill fast! Never tear down core buildings! Save our cultural landscape. Use adaptive re-use. Create from within; infill, architectural additions, contemporary restoration.

The central business district (about the ten square miles we know as "downtown") is surrounded in either direction by totally ignored public space that is what is keeping people out of downtown. Knocking down buildings downtown will not make San Antonio "cooler". Reviving the near west and east side of the CBD and improving mass transit so that families can work, and go to school, and live downtown is what is going to make san antonio a vibrant city. The international high rises will come when the people do.
