Academy snaps up land in Alamo Crossing to relocate S SA presence

AcademyEven though it’s just a short drive away from its current location along SW Military, the six-acre site at I-35 and Zarzamora packs a powerful punch for Academy Sports + Outdoors with its accessible, dynamic location and that it was available to buy rather than lease.

So the sporting goods retailer closed on it, and will be moving its entire South San Antonio presence three miles westward to shift from its current lease model at 165 SW Military Dr. to full ownership.

Already turning dirt, Academy is going ground up on the vacant lot at 7503 S Zarzamora, and will be joining other retailers in the Alamo Crossing shopping center such as Lowe’s Home Improvement, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse.

Powell Companies’ Daryl Lange represented the seller, a San Antonio-based partnership, in the transaction.

At nearly 63,000 square feet — a boost from the SW Military store’s 59,000 square feet — the new Alamo Crossing location will offer the same services, the same inventory, same uniforms — the only changes customers will face is the drive time and what Academy’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Ken Attaway called “an improved shopping experience with an updated look and feel.”
