the broadway


the broadway, originally uploaded by paul heaston.

The Broadway is a residential tower built, appropriately enough, on the corner of Broadway and Hildebrand. It sits on the former site of Earl Abel's Restaurant. The restaurant, under new ownership, really only moved down the road a ways, but that hasn't stopped many locals from complaining that the Broadway has displaced a beloved San Antonio landmark. The Broadway is one of a half-dozen or so highrise residential towers built in San Antonio in the last five years or so. I think it's an indicator that some San Antonians are finally moving back into town from the suburban wastelands of the surrounding hill country.

  2. Amazing verticality in this one -- and as always, you seem to know exactly the amount of lines to use.
