So glad this is coming to fruition. A school like this in downtown is such a plus for the city imo. All these kids once they graduate will have spent up to four years in a downtown urban environment and I'm sure a lot of them will seek to stay there after graduation, or come back to downtown once they start making some money.

That's an interesting perspective that I had not considered.  Sounds quite plausible,  thanks for writing that.

Great point! This is so key in making the city more cohesive.

About the only times you see young (high school age) people downtown during a weekday are with the occasional youth oriented convention. A selective admission arts school is an interesting first step to break up the age demographics downtown.  I wonder if another private high school (apart from Incarnate Word) might work.

This is going faster than I assumed it would.  I was thinking more like Block 334 speed

Does anyone remember/know when they're targeting opening for classes?

I walked by this the other day.  I Am thrilled dthat it is being built.

 

I hope that very soon downtown is crowded with the type of vibrancy that only art-focused, 16-18 year old students can bring.  As a group, they will most assuredly make their presence known.

Now that I think about it, this picture shows the Texa-slow-go garage.

 

any bets that this entire school will have been excavated, arisen, topped out, dried in, and possibly finished and open for students before the Texa-so-slow garage is complete?

Good question, but it does look like they are getting close to  opening.

Maybe it was an optical illusion!
