There is a clear movement towards making the city's urban core more vibrant. No longer just an 8 hour workplace, downtown revitalization efforts are working towards keeping more people in the center of the city for longer periods of time. The trends of moving away from the "centro" is shifting and development efforts appear to be moving back inwards.
When it comes to affordability, the Alamo City is a great place to live. Downtown living provides no shortage of housing and there are hundreds more apartments on the horizon. The average downtown rent rate is on par with the national rent average, which is great news for San Antonians who love to rent!

- Shops at Rivercenter
- Luxury Riverwalk apartment tower
- Southtown townhomes
- Maverick dog park
