Sentry Gateway - 126 acre office park

Another suburban office park for San Antonio. It will include more than 1 million square feet spread out over a dozen buildings. It is being built at Potranco and Military near the intersection of Loop 410 and Hwy 151.

I hear Nationwide Insurance is looking for office space.

I hear Nationwide Insurance is looking for office space.
I know you are probably joking, but Nationwide is definitely not moving into any of this space.
This space, while they say is open to the public, will have no problem filling up with this "Government Agency's" suppliers/support. If you look at COPT projects, they are almost 100% leased. Expect some big names in Defense & Technology to set up shop there.

I'm not the only one that believes this, here is a more detailed list of events.
Here is an excerpt of one of the articles:

Quote:
The new NSA site, at Loop 410 and Military Drive, consists of two connected buildings that contain office and research and development space totaling about 475,000 square feet. Those buildings could be expanded by several thousand more square feet. In addition, Office Properties Trust plans to buy 43 more acres around the 50-acre Sony Campus. The campus has the ability to accommodate three more buildings and its developers eventually expect the site to exceed 1 million square feet, making it the city's second largest office park after USAA's headquarters on the North Side. The developers need to do some remodeling to the site to accommodate the NSA operations, which are expected to begin moving in this fall.

Already, San Antonio has a strong presence of cyber security operations and research with existing NSA operations and the U.S. Air Force Intelligence Agency at Lackland, nicknamed Security Hill. The University of Texas at San Antonio also is one of 59 universities in the nation recognized by the NSA, which designated it a center for academic excellence in information assurance education. With its growing expertise, San Antonio has developed a reputation nationwide as a top-notch information security city, said U.S. Rep. Charlie Gonzalez. And since 9-11 and Gulf War II, the U.S. government has been beefing up its intelligence agencies and particularly its operations here, he said.

The Texas Congressional delegation received a briefing on the NSA expansion in San Antonio on Thursday. The project has been kept top secret because of its mission. "It's a sophisticated operation in every way," Gonzalez said. "This is a great opportunity for individuals in San Antonio." The site will be a major intelligence campus of the NSA and one of the largest campuses outside of Fort Meade, where the NSA has between 20,000 and 30,000 employees and operates like a small city. The NSA must expand outside of Washington because they've run out of room at their current site, Bamford said. The San Antonio site will also help diversify the agency and not make them as vulnerable in the event of an attack, he said. On May 4, the NSA will have a career fair at the Omni Hotel in San Antonio. The agency is looking to hire intelligence analysts, language experts, computer scientists, mathematicians, signals analysts, accountants, financial analysts, investigators and police officers.
Obviously, COPT bought more than 43 acres, but the plan has been in place since for quite some time now.
