The University of Texas at San Antonio is planning to build the $124.5 million Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Careers Building on its downtown campus. Designed by Gensler and Overland Partners, the six-story, 180,000-sf facility will accommodate applied education courses in business, engineering, and the sciences. Immersive learning venues will equip students with the crucial skills required by local employers, who are actively partnering with UTSA to create job training and internship opportunities. The publicly accessible structure will also provide classrooms, teaching labs, conference rooms, meeting areas, and space for community programs.
Seamlessly connecting indoor and outdoor environments, the highly collaborative building will feature reconfigurable spaces that can easily adapt to meet changing academic requirements. Groundbreaking is slated for summer of 2023 with occupancy expected in spring of 2026. Known as San Pedro II, the project is strategically sited next to UTSA’s School of Data Science and the National Security Collaboration Center, both of which are located in San Pedro I.
