PETCO HQ expansion bringing 400 jobs to SA

Looks like PETCO is bringing some jobs that are NOT call center-type (well maybe not all.)

San Antonio lures major PETCO support center with strong incentives package
SABJ - by W. Scott Bailey

Quote:
PETCO Animal Supply Inc., a leading national pet specialty retailer, says it will create a new satellite support center in San Antonio that will eventually employ up to 400 people.

.............

Castro says the company is expected to bring "significant, decision-making jobs" to San Antonio.

Petco opening satellite HQ in S.A., bringing 400 jobs

Quote:
San Diego, Calif.-based Petco Animal Supplies Inc. will expand its headquarters to San Antonio next year, adding about 400 corporate jobs within three years, the company announced Monday at City Hall.

Petco will open its Satellite Support Center with about 100 employees, including several top executives, in June at 654 Richland Hills Drive in the Westpointe Corporate Center in Northwest San Antonio.

Between 40 to 80 employees are expected to move to San Antonio from the company's National Support Center in San Diego. As Petco's employment grows in San Antonio, the rest will be hired locally starting in 2011.

There were a couple of hints to this in the last couple of months;

From Sept. 29th, 2010
S.A. wooing West Coast companies
by William Pack - EN

Quote:
San Antonio officials just back from a recruiting trip confirmed that the city is in the running to land at least one San Diego-based company by the end of the year. San Antonio also is expected to see three or four more corporate expansions before 2011.

................................

The newest California targets were thought to be biotechnology firms, but Hernandez said the company giving San Antonio a hard look works in another sector.
and another from August 30th, 2010:

PETCO sniffing out home for 400 office jobs

Quote:
Petco is sniffing around North Texas for office space in a move that could eventually bring 400 jobs to the area.

The San Diego-based company is also considering San Antonio and Norman, Okla., for a back-office operations center, brokers familiar with the search said.

...................

The company might expand into as much as 100,000 square feet in the next few years and eventually move C-suite executives to North Texas, although a headquarters move is "a big maybe," the source said.

Read more.......
In the last quote, change out North Texas for South Texas; this was in the Dallas Biz Journal

A $14 million 130-room Hilton Garden Inn is going up at The RIM.

Another hotel is being built near DeZavala on University Heights Blvd by DD&B Construction. Any idea what that hotel will be?

At 4 stories and 122 rooms, doesn't sound like anything exciting.
Address is 5535 University Heights Blvd. if you search permits.

Thanks I was searching Silicon Drive. A lot of hotels have opened around the Six Flags/La Cantera/UTSA area over the past couple of years... and most are mid-sized limited service hotels.

Pact just start for children's hospital

Well, at least the ball is rolling and although details are unknown, we can sit and wait for a $450 million facility to emerge. Could even see two buildings.

“While a location is not determined, we're committed to continue to have services in the downtown area — maybe a split operation like we're doing with our hospital district now,” Wolff said.

Pact just start for children's hospital

Location, construction funds are next issues.
By Don Finley
dfinley@express-news.net
Published: 12:00 a.m., Saturday, December 18, 2010

The city's two large nonprofit health care systems formally agreed Friday to build a new state-of-the-art children's hospital.
The next step: figuring out how to pay for it and where to put it.
Surrounded by a small army of elected officials and others at the Bexar County Courthouse, the leaders of the Christus Santa Rosa Health System and the tax-supported University Health System signed a letter of intent to create a “network of children's services” throughout the city, including a new children's hospital.
“It's not been an easy road,” County Judge Nelson Wolff said. “But over the past year, Santa Rosa and University Health System, the only two nonprofit health systems in our community, came together and decided not just to do better, but to be the best — a world-class children's hospital. And I think our children deserve nothing less than the best.”
Officials floated an estimated cost of $450 million or more for a top-level children's hospital, or between $1.2 million and $1.5 million per bed.
And although both hospital systems will provide some of the money, the rest will have to come from the community, they said.

University of Texas at San Antonio athletic director Lynn Hickey grew emotional Tuesday as she thanked county leaders for contributing $15 million to the building of track and soccer facilities near Loop 1604.

UTSA President Ricardo Romo said the sports complex — to be located on 125 acres of university land a mile west of the campus near Hausman Road and Loop 1604 — eventually could include baseball, tennis and football training facilities, with a total cost of more than $80 million.

For now, only the track and soccer stadiums are being launched, and they'll be well received by the entire community, Romo predicted.
Ball gets rolling on sports plan

Not sure, there were plans 13 years ago for one in that area. The only similar thing (5 years ago) were the plans by West Paces Hotel Group on opening a Solis Hotel at the Rim.

On the Ritz-Carlton website, however, San Antonio (and Houston) are plotted on the map; you are only able to highlight Dallas. Similar situation in Ohio, Pennsylvania, NC and a few other locations. That could mean that the potential is there for something, but then again, it could just be there for location, I haven't kept up with the website so I don't know if it was always like that. Keep checking I guess.

Eilan is massive.
The only thing that concerns me about the project is its accessibility and connectivity to pretty much the rest of the areas neighborhoods. The shops/retail might suffer and there might be some empty stores for some time. That could be a good thing (short term) because if retail is overbuilt, then we might see a larger push toward high(er) density residential at Cantera Town Center, Village at the Rim and anything that is built at Landmark. That would be better for the area, except for the traffic it'll cause on 1604/10.

Valero has plans for a flagship store at the Interstate 10/UTSA Blvd intersection. The company store will build across from Costco about half a mile from the corporate headquarters.

A trailer park near the intersection of Babcock Rd and Hausman Rd will see new life as a shopping center. Dozens of mobile homes were removed and the entire property (including roads) has been fenced. The owner's proposed plat was denied by the city planning commission, but a new plan is underway.

My knowledge of the reason the plan was denied is because the site is extremely flood-prone.
