San Antonio Neighborhoods ~ Downtown Condos ~ Riverwalk

Living in one of San Antonio's downtown lofts or condos is an appealing alternative for many people... singles, young couples, empty nesters, or anyone who enjoys living in a sophisticated urban environment.  Many new residential units, everything from new highrises to rehabs of historic properties have been come to the real estate market in the past few years.  The locations include River North, South Flores area, St. Paul Square, Pearl Brewery, King William, Irish Flats and the Central Business District.

All the charm of the city is at your doorstep.  It is so convenient to enjoy an evening at the symphony, theater, ballet, or dining out. Enjoy museums, shopping, cultural events, sports events, and other entertainment.  Medical facilities and churches are nearby.  Just think of enjoying Fiesta and the Texas Cavaliers River Parade from your balcony or rooftop.

The most expensive highrise condo on the MLS as of today is listed for $1,500,000.  But there are modestly priced condos to be found as well, some below $200,000. 

If I decided to move downtown, I would most like choose a condo within a short distance of the Riverwalk and preferably with a view of the Riverwalk.  The most expensive condo listed in the MLS as of today near the Riverwalk is at the beautiful La Cascada condominiums; a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath with 2968 sf on one level and listed at $695,000.00.  The listing agent states that the unit has gorgeous downtown and river views, convenient parking, 24 hour security, an executive meeting facility, rooftop pool and spa and workout facility. It has tile floors, granite counters and stainless appliances. Walking distance to downtown shops and attractions.

Shirley, I've only been to SA once and of course we went to Riverwalk. It was a lot of fun, very beautiful. I'm looking forward to going back again when I can visit more of San Antonio.

Shirley - The Riverwalk is what draws many tourist to San Antonio. Christmas and spring is the best time of the year. I don't know why "us" locals don't go down for a visit more often.
