Innovation Corridor & San Antonio
Windcrest kicks off the Innovation Corridor between San Antonio and Austin, a sprawling 74-mile strip of the most rapidly expanding counties in the nation thanks to capital investment, population growth, low housing prices, and remarkable job creation, especially in the tech industry. As San Antonio’s doorway to these opportunities, Windcrest is strongly connected to the growth taking place here.
San Antonio is projected to add 1.1 million more residents by 2040, which will enhance Windcrest’s skilled workforce of professionals younger than the U.S. national average. Our workforce is swelled with thousands of educated graduates from 15 area colleges and universities every year. And with total retail sales per capita of $19,576, 45% higher than the U.S., Windcrest offers an unmatched pro-business environment dedicated to economic growth. Household income in Windcrest sits at $75,972, 32% higher than the national medium. Add to this a cost of living 13 points below the national average, affordable land, low taxes, and abundant power, and you can see why we’re so excited to invite you to the incredible opportunities in Windcrest.
Along with being known for its rich culture, food, art, and history, San Antonio is inseparable from its military identity. The three major military bases in San Antonio have brought premier medical facilities, leading scientific research, and a strengthened economy to the Windcrest area. Randolph Air Force base, Fort Sam Houston, and the Military Medical Center are all near Windcrest. There is also a significant retired military presence in Windcrest that brings stability. The Army Residence Community is just a few miles away from Windcrest and serves 750 retired career officers.
Because of these strong economic prospects and location benefits, Windcrest has attracted a variety of businesses big and small, including the headquarters of the world’s leading internet-hosting company, Rackspace.
