SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio's downtown skyline, which has seen dramatic changes in the past few years, is gearing up for more.

Buildings such as the Grand Hyatt and Embassy Suites along the Riverwalk, the 247-unit Class A Vistana apartments and the 146-unit condominium Vidorra have established the foundation for some of the future changes.

New downtown Class A office product has been virtually nonexistent in recent years, a trend that will hopefully change with CPS Energy's commitment to keeping its headquarters in the area and Weston Urban's plans to deliver the first new downtown office tower in 30 years that will house Frost Bank's new headquarters.

Downtown's retail scene has largely been segmented between tourists and locals — heavily weighted toward the former. Rivercenter Mall, which is on track to complete construction in early fall, will help solve that problem.

Hemisfair's multipronged approach and development plans will be an anchor for downtown San Antonio, connecting with the Pearl to help define the city's urban core.

The changes to San Antonio's skyline over the past seven years are undeniable, but what developers, brokers and residents are most excited about is that the real change is just getting started.
