When the realignment of Fort Sam occurs, which neighborhoods are expected to absorb the brunt of the 27,000 people moving here?

AND, when do they expect the first wave of new transplants?

According to the news and what we've seen here, they're already coming and they'll be all over the place. Where they live probably depends on their income and budget more than anything else.

You could certainly expect the areas geographically closest to Ft. Sam to be in demand - Government Hill, Tobin Hill, Mahncke Park, Terrell Hills, Terrell Heights, Northwoods, Windcrest, Converse, Universal City... then getting farther away Schertz/Cibolo (NE), Highlands (SE), or possibly out in the 151/Seaworld area probably wouldn't be too bad of a commute. Because of traffic and drive times, I think most Ft. Sam'ers will try to avoid commutes that require them to drive down from the 281/1604 area or commutes that cross the 410/I-10 area.

All these neighborhoods vary significantly in housing stock, price ranges and quality of school districts, so it may be helpful to get a breakdown from DoD as to what percent of expected arrivals will be consultants/contractors (i.e., higher personal income), what percent will be officers or highly paid professionals and what percent will be enlisted/lower-income staff. That kind of information could help you gauge which neighborhoods are likely to experience more demand from Ft. Sam relocatees.

The city is looking to rezone Government Hill to add more density.

Also, look for more residential units to be built off of Broadway.

I believe a residential tower is being built off Mulberry where the old Brack stables used to be.
