Spread This Idea


The Street Level. An afterthought to the Riverwalk, needs same attention for a successful dntwn. Nice historic bldgs and storefronts, inadequate landscape, activities, shade....

My idea to improve this place

Connect to Mrkt Sq=Houston St as pedestrian-only market with shops and cart vendors. Alamo Plaza pedestrian-only b/w Commerce and Houston. More paseos/programmed alleys. Improve cxns to riverwalk.

So that people could... 

Inhabit the street as they do the Riverwalk. Improve commercial, entertainment, restaurant opportunities at street level. So that dntwn residents can have a place, too.

Because I want San Antonio to be...

Active/Attractive at street level as well at river level. People will bring more people.
