Port San Antonio reports recent activity

PortSAA steady stream of positive activity has been reported recently at Port San Antonio, once Kelly Air Force Base and now San Antonio’s largest industrial park.  Activity includes tenant expansions, new jobs, a new cafe-style restaurant and infrastructure improvements.

acs_logoPort San Antonio recently announced that Dallas-based Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (ACS) has signed a lease to occupy approximately 74,000 square feet in Building 43 – an office flex building located at 143 Billy Mitchell Blvd.  The Fortune 500 company will retain 538 jobs currently at Port San Antonio and add 300 more by April of next year.

The San Antonio Express News (5-22-09) reported that Chromalloy Gas Turbine Corp. plans to add 130 workers to raise its total to nearly 400.  Chromalloy occupies approximately 300,000 square feet in two facilities at Port San Antonio.

 The May 2009 Port San Antonio Update newsletter reported that Gore Design Completions, which employs over 500 at its Port San Antonio operation, plans to construct a two-story structure to sit adjacent to the 120,000 square-foot build-to-suit hangar that the company has occupied since 2004.

The 15,000 employees that are employed in the sixty or so businesses at Port San Antonio will be joined by Market Depot – a cafe-style restaurant to be located at 495 Duncan Drive. 

More growth may be on the way.  Port San Antonio has preliminary plans for more development including a mix of retail, hotel and office which is referred to as Town Center located on 150 acres along the main street.  More jobs may also be on the way according to the San Antonio Business Journal (6-5-09) which reported that the new 24th Air Force Cyber Command could land at Port San Antonio instead of Lackland Air Force Base largely because of the availability of Building 171 – a 400,000 square-foot facility still owned by the Air Force.

Plans for 36th Street

To accommodate the traffic associated with all this growth and expansion, a key project is moving forward to revamp 36th Street – a major artery into Port San Antonio.  The expansion project will be partially funded with $14.74 million in federal stimulus money with an additional $29 million from other sources including Port San Antonio, the City of San Antonio, SAWS, CPS Energy.
