Discuss all the new downtown developments

Show up to the table as the locally-informed guests by letting everyone know that San Antonio’s skyline will be changing dramatically in the next couple of years. With 300 main under construction, Weston Urban’s Hemisfair residential tower in the works, and completion of the first phase of the San Pedro Creek Culture Park project, there’s no shortage of news to discuss.
