If you have been in and around downtown San Antonio recently you know there is a lot of traffic, construction and cranes. The Alamo City continues to grow, both out and up.
Matt Brown, CEO of Centro San Antonio, said the goal of all the construction is to make the downtown area a place people want to live, play and work again.
“I just want to have a lot more fun and a lot more play. And I hope we get to see a lot more of that in this coming year,” Brown said.
Brown says his vision for the future for downtown is in fact, slowly coming to fruition.
“If you look at the city, it has a strategy plan called ‘The SA Tomorrow’ and it has these 13 different regional centers and one’s the downtown retail center and it includes both Southtown and Lone Star. I think the The Pearl is just outside of it maybe,” Brown said.
