Defining Urban Convenience challenges the narrative of a diversely parceled city as excellent as San Antonio, known as the biggest little city.
What is urban?
What is convenience?
ur·ban | \ ˈər-bən \

con·ve·nience | \ kən-ˈvēn-yən(t)s \
Definition of convenience
1: fitness or suitability for performing an action or fulfilling a requirement
2a: something (such as an appliance, device, or service) conducive to comfort or ease
3: A suitable or convenient time
4: Freedom from discomfort: EASE
Urban convenience as verbiage doesn’t limit living choices to uptown or downtown San Antonio locations; tons of semi-urban enclaves (a step aside suburban) exist throughout the city, meeting the definitions, but…
Urban as a word is a no-brainer.
Convenience is high-speed internet in a home office of a high-rise in a major city. It will have a view. Quick bites, good restaurants, or a corner grocery are steps from your complex door, barely a three-minute walk; your complex may have these as amenities.
Luxury condos and townhome city conveniences near San Antonio’s greenway trails and museums are choices for the young professional family or executive professional.

A unique feature at The Broadway is the pool styled after the amenity at Four Seasons, Maui.
