Rookie sensation Victor Wembanyama isn’t the only reason the San Antonio Spurs should be excited about the future. 

The NBA squad is gearing up for the second phase of the Rock at La Cantera, a 60,000-square-foot medical office building that will help anchor its $500 million human performance campus on the city’s Northwest Side, the San Antonio Business Journal reported

The campus already includes the Victory Capital Performance Center, a 134,000-square-foot facility that’s home to the Spurs’ basketball operations. The performance center opened in October.

Lincoln Property Company is developing the medical building, and construction is scheduled to start in the first half of 2024.

UT Health San Antonio has agreed to lease a third of the building, earmarking space for outpatient care and an elite research center. This collaboration solidifies a multiyear partnership between the Spurs and UT Health San Antonio, formed to pursue advancements in human performance research and innovation.

“Having a world-renowned academic medical center like UT Health San Antonio as its anchor sets a standard of excellence for all other tenants to follow,” Spurs Sports & Entertainment CEO R.C. Buford told the outlet.

Designed by Alta Architects, the medical building will accommodate healthcare offices and facilitate research operations and pioneering practices. Stream Realty is charged with leasing available space. 

The development aligns with UT Health San Antonio’s healthcare goals by “focusing on healthy aging, injury prevention and treatment, exercise science, cutting-edge clinical care, sports medicine and health promotion,” the school’s president, Dr. William Henrich, told the outlet.

Initiated in late 2021, Spurs officials predict that the Rock at La Cantera project will go beyond basketball and make a significant regional impact.
