Koontz Set to Develop 35-Acre Industrial Park on the Near West Side of San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO—August 2, 2021. San Antonio-based Koontz Corporation today announced plans to develop Westport Industrial Park, a 35-acre industrial project near the corner of South Callaghan Road and Highway 151 on the Near West side of San Antonio.
“The west side of San Antonio has experienced rapid residential growth over the past decade, with limited industrial inventory available for businesses supplying and servicing this burgeoning market,” said Koontz Corporation President and CEO Bart Koontz. “The area’s manufacturing base is also poised for significant growth, and we want to be there to serve that demand.”
The future Westport Industrial Park will consist of four 90,000 square-foot industrial buildings featuring 24-foot clear heights, ESFR sprinkler system, 130-foot truck courts and trailer parking. Westport is in the design phase and additional amenities are still to be determined, as are the project consultants, all of which will be announced at a later date.
When completed, The Westport development will be able to accommodate tenants’ space needs ranging from 25,000 to 90,000 square feet.
Koontz Corporation purchased the site on July 26, 2021, from three sellers, two of whom were represented by Harry Leeper, of Leeper Commercial Real Estate Brokerage, and the other by Glen Boehm, of The Boehm Team/Keller Williams Commercial Real Estate. Koontz’s in-house broker, Loren Gulley, represented them as the buyer.
Landmark developments in the vicinity of the future Westport Industrial Park include the San Antonio Food Bank, Glazer’s Beer and Beverage, and Silver Eagle Distributors, an Amazon sortation center, and Bay Valley Foods. Bill Miller Bar-B-Q recently announced construction of its $60 million corporate headquarters and commissary on 57 acres near the intersection of Enrique Barerra Parkway and SH 151. Additionally, Toronto-based FGF Brands is moving forward with plans to build a new $129 million bakery on 100 acres at the southwest corner of Callaghan and SH 151. When complete, the bakery is expected to employ nearly 1,000 full-time workers.
Westport Industrial Park will be built in two phases, with each consisting of two buildings. Phase I construction is slated to begin during the first quarter of 2022, with completion by year’s end. Preleasing will begin soon. “We believe our Westport project will be the right product at the right time for the city’s booming Near West area,” said Koontz. “We’re excited to be a part of the area’s dynamic growth.”
