The Association of Defense Communities, a national organization serving communities impacted by base closures, recognized Port San Antonio’s efforts to transform the 1,880-acre site of the former Kelly Air Force Base into a center of commerce and innovative real estate and business development, and giant economic engine for the entire region.

Port San Antonio’s real estate and business development efforts have attracted more than 70 employers to the site, resulting in direct and indirect jobs for approximately 25,000 people and generating an estimated $4.23 billion in regional economic activity each year.
