“We intentionally developed San Pedro I to sit in the heart of downtown San Antonio where it will attract unique government-university-industry strategic partnerships in the fields of data science, cybersecurity and national security. Moreover, this is at the heart of our focus on advancing workforce and economic development here in San Antonio while developing new knowledge for these essential industries. This is a big day for UTSA, our region and our state.”
