You're way confused or just ill-informed. Development is all taking place at BAMC and Fort Sam. Camp Bullis is strictly a medical and feild exercise training site, including night training that is severly impacted by surrounding development light pollution (night vision goggles go haywire). Also, the Army does have to comply with the endangered species act. And it is true, lose Camp Bullis and you lose BAMC/Fort Sam. Though maybe some of those docs and related employees could find a decent job at Bass Outdoor or Circuit City.

hey i saw someone mentioned that along with la cantera, Six Flags needed to do a little renovating in the area...dont count on it. i have a close relative who works for Fiesta Texas, and right now Six Flags is going financially bankrupt. and its not due to the economic crisis, its been going on for the past year, the only reason fiesta texas got the new coaster was that we were the closest park from New Orleans(its original home) to take it. right now Six Flags stock is below $1.00 and are making moves to try and jump start its stock again. so im just warning you now, dont expect new rides, dont expect a new entrance, lower prices, or new anything really...and to be honest, dont expect six flags to be here in 3 years. simply put, its not making money and a buisness that doesnt make money doesnt do buisness period.

Please don't accuse anyone of being "ill-informed" when your not aware of a situation yourself.

Both projects have already been bid. There is also a 31,000 sf. vehicle shop and 10,000 sf. storage building being built. All told it is close to $50 million worth of projects this year at Bullis.

Six Flags has been broke for over a decade. The company hasn't made any money since 1997.

Fiesta Texas makes money, it's Six Flags the company based in New York that owns several theme parks around the country, including Fiesta Texas, that is failing and not making money.

I was over at The Rim yesterday and noticed that a crane is up at Eilan. Can't wait to see this development, should be a beautiful setting along the hillside.

A 4-level office building (125,000 sf) is also being built and leased by UTSA. It will also include a parking garage (entrance at Seco Creek St).

UTSA also leases space at the University Heights business park at Hausman/I-10.

Brass Fund's business park (25 acre at I-10 & Heuerman) will be called Brass Gateway. It will consist of 5 buildings ranging from 80,000 to 250,000 sf. Construction will begin in 2009. It is being painted as a formal "gateway" to San Antonio from the West. The buildings will encircle a park-like public space that will include waterfalls and outdoor conference areas.
