$15 Million Gift and Downtown Land for UTSA

The University of Texas at San Antonio

The University of Texas at San Antonio has received a $15 Million gift to support their proposed School of Data Science. One of UTSA’s major component is to accelerate the development of its Downtown Campus as a destination for producing professionals in big data and analytics, advancing economic development in the urban core, and creating prosperity for San Antonio.

UTSA is also in discussions with the City of San Antonio and Bexar County for the transfer of downtown parcels of land. Those parcels would be the sites for the new school, a National Security Collaboration Center, and for the relocation of the UTSA College of Business.

The university and the city are also actively exploring the joint development and management of the former Continental Hotel on West Commerce Street as housing for faculty and other urban professionals. The project will involve the renovation of the existing hotel and construction of a new building on the hotel’s former parking lot.

As part of the initial phase of UTSA’s 10-year vision, the university will issue a request for qualifications (RFQ) this October for the development of its Cattleman’s Square property. Located within UTSA’s current Downtown Campus footprint, the project would be a public-private partnership developed as a mixed-use residential tower. Additional development on, and west of, the current Downtown Campus is included in the second phase of the university’s 10-year plan.
