High-rises could be headed toward Hillcrest as a result of the new Uptown Community Plan adopted by the City Council last week.
The update to the 1988 land-use plan for the 2,700-acre collection of communities south of Interstate 8 and between Old Town and North Park calls for maxing out at about 32,000 homes and 55,700 people, about the same as envisioned a generation ago.
