“Captivating and beautiful”

Tower Life Building
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This building definitely has command presence. The architecture replete with gargoyles is hypnotizing. You can go into the lobby and enjoy all the wonderful detail including the original mailbox that still functions to this day. Office workers on the upper floors put their mail in the shute and it travels to the lobby and gathers in this ornate mailbox. The original elevator doors are still there as is the intricate ceiling. If you are in the area do yourself a favor pop in. It is beautiful!

The exterior of the building is what counts. Check out the location near the San Antonio river and the beautiful angles, windows and proportions. The building represents the union of past and present for San Antonio. It's not the Flat Iron Building in NYC, but it's close.

I have visited offices there several times and the building is centrally located. However, in fairness I have not looked for sightseeing or features that might be of interest to visitors.

If you go to the top of the building and ask to look out of an office window you can see the art work & gargoyles and the city, it is a beautiful building.

Great views from the top floors. And it shouldn't cost you anything.
