Central Business District (Downtown)
The following section provides the results of the regional center analysis and measures how a center performs relative to the future vision for its category.
Downtown is the historic and cultural center of the city and home to the world-renowned Riverwalk. It is the center of San Antonio’s traditional economy, anchored by our multi-billion-dollar tourism, education and healthcare industries. The urban core is revitalizing and experiencing a growth renaissance, supported by the “Decade of Downtown” movement. The City Center is evolving into a vibrant mixed-use area with a range of employment, services and housing, all centered around great historical and cultural destinations.
Tasks Ahead: Although it is close to meeting the aspirational scores, Downtown needs to continue adding housing to even the mix of employment and residents.
