Brooks City-Base redefines old military base

Brooks City-Base

At one time its largest tenant, the U.S. Air Force will say farewell to Brooks City-Base this week after it occupied the former military installation for nearly 95 years.

While it will be a bittersweet goodbye, the Brooks Development Authority, the entity that owns the 1,300-acre property, continues to map out the development’s future as it works to attract more research and technology companies to the campus.

Today, Brooks City-Base is home to nearly two dozen public and private tenants, including DPT Laboratories, the development’s first major commercial tenant; AECOM, a technical management company; the Emergency Operations Center, a $24.5 million project that integrates the city of San Antonio and Bexar County emergency management offices; and Brooks Academy, a charter school for grades kindergarten through 12.

The development’s newest tenant, Texas A&M University-San Antonio, has signed a five-year lease for its second academic location, where classes started last week, said Rick Trefzer, assistant vice president for finance and administration for the university. It will occupy a 77,000-square-foot facility that can accommodate about 1,500 students.
