The western front of Alamo Plaza. Is no news good news, or just a well-guarded secret?
It has been almost two years since the Alamo issued its request for qualifications to hire a firm to conduct an historical assessment of the significance of the Crockett Block (above, a personal favorite), the Palace Theatre and the Woolworth Building on Alamo Plaza.

As for their reuse? That might depend on how the issue is approached. The illustration used on the Alamo website only highlights obstacles.Click here to see illustrations and read this alamobsessive post
