15K students, more residential density: CityFest panel dreams up the ‘Future of Downtown’

Originally published in San Antonio Report

The San Antonio Report’s 2022 CityFest kicked off Tuesday morning at UTSA’s Buena Vista Theater with a newsmaker panel on the “Future of Downtown.”

Much of the conversation revolved around the need for additional residential density in the urban core, along with the expansion of UTSA, which has pledged to grow its downtown student population to at least 15,000 students this decade.

The panel was made up of Jenna Saucedo-Herrera, president and CEO of Greater: SATX, Weston Urban co-founder and CEO Randy Smith, Centro San Antonio President and CEO Matt Brown, Puro Handsome Barbershop owner Tommie Gonzalez and Assistant City Manager Lori Houston. It was moderated by A.J. Rodriguez, the San Antonio Report’s board chair and executive director of Texas 2036.
