At the core of the City's Central Business

City of San Antonio. Now on it's last leg of development, it has become a
vibrant mix of activities that promote commercial, residential and other
cultural development along Houston Street and in the surrounding area.
This TIRZ was designated in 2000 to support
redevelopment and public infrastructure improvements within the boundaries of
the following three enterprise zones: 1) Enterprise Community Enterprise Zone 2)
Eastside Enterprise Zone 3) Southside Enterprise Zone. These areas encompass
portions of the City's downtown, east and south sides. The zone is approximately
2.5 square miles and is expected to capture $16.5 million in tax increment in
its life of 14.79 years.

development of housing, commercial, retail and technology-based office space and

capture $55.4 million in tax increment throughout its life of 24.82 years.
This TIRZ was designed to leverage ongoing
area development in support of a special joint project between the U.S. Air
Force and the City of San Antonio to successfully convert and redevelop the
former Brooks Air Force Base into a business and technology park that has
already spurred significant development.

assets will aid in its development.

through fiscal year 2028. Located within or near its 458-acre boundary are some of San
Antonio's most valued places, Brackenridge Park, Pearl Brewery and the Witte

consultant team to develop a master plan for the area.

property, this TIRZ is located south of the Central Business District and north
