San Antonio's largest technology center is getting a state-of-the-art office tower
Pre-development work for a brand new, state-of-the-art office tower at the main entrance of the largest technology center in San Antonio is beginning this April.
Port San Antonio has moved forward with their plans to create a striking modern tower with global real estate development firm Trammell Crow Company (TCC) and architectural firm Pelli Clarke and Partners.
"We're excited to bring world-class partners to our team as we plan our region’s future as leaders in technological innovation," said Port San Antonio president and CEO Jim Perschbach in a press release. "Our new building is more than just a place to work–it’s a symbol of our bright future and a recognition that we stand on the shoulders of the generations who came before us building one of the world’s most important centers for world-changing innovations."
The size of the tower and construction costs are yet to be determined, but the massive development on the 1,900-acre campus follows after the company’s six-year employment boom, adding over 7,000 new jobs to Tech Port. Some of the major employers operating at the Port include Boeing, the U.S. Air Force, Accenture Federal Services, and over 80 others.

The new office tower is just one of three significant projects the Port announced in 2022 to signify the company’s growth. One of the main goals of the new tower is to strengthen San Antonio’s presence in the tech world, showcasing the city’s capabilities for the future.
"Because of our sharp focus on creating a community where people from all walks of life can connect with life-changing opportunities, this campus has seen exciting growth by our customers, and much more is expected in the months and years ahead," said Port Board Chair Margaret Wilson-Anaglia. "Our customers’ success, from global names to home-grown tech entrepreneurs, has fueled our expansion, and we are ready for our next phase as one of the most vibrant places in our community."
Most recently, a multi-purpose facility called the Boeing Center at Tech Port opened last year to add several new educational and entrepreneurial attractions to San Antonio. A few of the new features included a 3,500-seat arena, a technology lab and startup accelerator, a LAN gaming center, and a “technology showcase” by the San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology called Area 21. All roads lead to the Kelly Heritage Foundation, where profits at the Boeing Center are donated to support funding educational programs for younger generations all around the area.
