Check out these stats: 3,200 new jobs were added in May, unemployment’s at 7.3%, and in Q2 there was 15k SF of positive office absorption—even rents are rising (up 1.6% over Q1). What’s more, San Antonio is the No. 1 tourism spot in Texas, but local brokers tell us you won’t find many non-tourist businesses downtown; they all skirt the edges.
