A vision as big as Texas

Brooks is a 1,308-acre mixed-use community in San Antonio, Texas, owned and managed by the Brooks Development Authority. We are governed by an 11-member board of directors that is appointed by the San Antonio City Council. We are a true public-private partnership. Brooks was created in 2001 by the United States Congress, the State of Texas and the City of San Antonio to redevelop the former Brooks Air Force Base.


A San Antonio community attracting local, national, and international investment to achieve world-class opportunities that transform the campus, surrounding neighborhoods and the region while respecting our rich and vibrant history.


Our mission is to promote and develop a vibrant, sustainable community that serves as a catalyst for progressive economic development and regional prosperity.
