A Place of Innovation

VelocityTX: The Critical Connector

VelocityTX was founded with a vision to create a place where academia, industry, and the military would come together to drive medical breakthroughs and promote transformational opportunity in our region. Anchored by a mixed-use superhub, this urban innovation campus would serve as a catalyst for economic and community growth by positioning San Antonio as a global leader in bioscience innovation and military medical research.

Located just east of downtown San Antonio, the 12-acre VelocityTX superhub will be comprised of two developments: the recently completed Merchants Ice complex and the adjacent G.J. Sutton property, which will be constructed over the next 10 years. Together, these visionary projects will create a nexus for investment, collaboration, technical expertise, and community.

Upon completion, the VelocityTX campus is expected to create over 2,500 jobs with an annual economic impact of more than $1.4 billion.
