That's a good point. The Riverwalk is a somewhat intimate setting, so skyscrapers right on it would seem a bit much. It may happen someday, but I think the taller buildings somehow "belong" farther away from the river. They give a nod to business and highrise living, as opposed to dining and touristing in a more relaxed and/or party atmosphere that is the Riverwalk.

Thanks for the photo, Raul. I always appreciate seeing buildings in context from a distance, as opposed to looking straight up at them from below.

This and the UTSA building are both good additions, although they both have really skinny windows. IMO that's less important for the UTSA building because it's an academic facility.
