Spurs Sports and Entertainment broke ground Thursday morning on their new nearly 50-acre development on the far Northwest Side that will feature a state-of-the-art training facility for the Spurs, medical and research offices, retail, park and community space.
Spurs Sports and Entertainment named the project the “Human Performance Campus.” It’s located off Loop 1604 and Interstate 10 near The Shops at La Cantera and Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
According to SSE officials, the 504,000-square-foot campus will include a collection of world-class training facilities, cutting-edge healthcare offices, community spaces, a 22-acre park and an outdoor plaza.
The Spurs organization has previously estimated that $510.8 million would be invested in the project over five years. Spurs officials have previously told KSAT the project will be primarily funded by private investors.
Spurs officials expect there could be more than 1,700 potential full-time employees at the site with the expectation it will be used 365 days a year for community gatherings and events.
The City of San Antonio and Bexar County are offering SSE $32 million in incentives to build the campus.
County commissioners agreed to commit $15 million to the project. In return, the county gets the park land, which the Spurs will maintain and operate - similar to their agreements for the AT&T Center or Toyota Field.
The San Antonio City Council voted to provide up to $17 million in tax rebates for the project. The Spurs would still pay property taxes under the deal, but it would get back 60% of the city’s share of the tax bill for real property improvements. The rebates would last for up to 23 years or until the $17 million cap is reached.
