San Antonio (Bexar County) — Sundt Construction Inc. recently celebrated the topping out of Port San Antonio’s Innovation Center, located at General Hudnell Drive and 36th Street.
“This is a great milestone on this innovative project,” said Jon McKelvain, Sundt’s Project Executive. “Our team has worked hard to get to this point and looks forward to completing this project for the Port.”
The 127,000-square-foot Innovation Center will prominently feature a 2,500-person multipurpose arena on the building’s southeast side. The new facility will host various events, including concerts, electronic gaming, technology competitions and trade shows.
The facility will be in the heart of the 1,900-acre technology and innovation campus that is already home to over 80 employers and more than 14,000 employees, including leading names in the aerospace, cybersecurity, robotics, and defense sectors.
Port San Antonio is promoting its Innovation Center (a project working title) as the Tech Port Center+Arena. In addition to the building, the project includes an outdoor public space that will eventually have a complex high-tech series of water features powered by atmospheric water generation technology.
Sundt has 50 years and over $3 billion of project experience in the Lone Star state, with offices in San Antonio, Dallas and El Paso. The company is currently busy in San Antonio, working on the San Pedro Creek Improvements and the Broadway Street reconstruction.
