A Place of Innovation

This is VelocityTX

Founded on a vision of economic opportunity, community impact, and cultural significance, VelocityTX seeks to establish an East Side Innovation District that will drive inclusive economic growth by advancing San Antonio’s bioscience industry. Here, new, existing, and emerging bioscience companies will come together in a vibrant multi-use community where innovators collide to promote medical breakthroughs that will enhance and save lives all around the world.

Anchored by a 12-acre Superhub, this transformational development will serve as a nexus for San Antonio’s thriving life sciences ecosystem, promoting sustainable economic growth for generations to come. Upon completion, the Superhub will be comprised of two developments: the recently completed Merchants Ice Complex and the G.J. Sutton property, which was acquired by VelocityTX in 2022.

Phase 1: Merchants Ice Complex

Once the largest cold storage facility in Texas, the reimagined Merchants Ice complex is now home to some of the country’s most innovative companies, including anchor tenants Scorpius BioManufacturing and Gencure, a subsidiary of BioBridge Global.

Phase 2: G.J. Sutton Property

Formerly home to the administrative offices of Bexar County’s first black elected official, the G.J. Sutton property will be developed over the next 10 years and is envisioned to serve as a center for military medical research and development.
