Escala Project Lands A Major Entertainment Anchor
The development is anchored by a new state-of-the-art EVO Entertainment location
Foresite is excited to welcome next generation entertainment destination, EVO, to the Escala development. Located at the corner of 151 and Military Drive in Far West San Antonio, the 80,000 square foot EVO® Entertainment center will feature 10 dine-in cinema screens, 12 bowling lanes, a restaurant & bar, over 7,000 square feet of video & redemption arcades, EVO®VR Virtual Reality, an elevated ropes course, outdoor patio, private event spaces and more. All auditoriums will offer push-button dine-in service from EVO®’s scratch kitchen and bar, and feature luxurious heated recliners, laser 4K projection, plus immersive Dolby® audio. The facility will also feature two EVX® premium large format auditoriums.
Mitch Roberts, CEO of EVO Entertainment Group®, shares “EVO at Escala is going to set a new standard, not just in San Antonio, but across the entire industry.” Work on the new EVO® Entertainment facility is expected to begin in the coming weeks, with an opening scheduled for January 2021.
The Escala property, which is ideally situated at the intersection of Highway 151 and Military Drive, has unprecedented access and visibility. The two-phase site will be anchored by the EVO Entertainment space, which will encompass the entire second phase. Phase I of the project will contain 10,000 to 15,000 square feet of multi-tenant spaces, including standalone build-to-suit opportunities for qualified tenants. The spaces would be ideal locations for retail, dining and medical users. The site is located near SeaWorld, which boasts over 3,500,000 annual visitors. Combined with the heavily traveled Highway 151 along with strong population figures, this location will serve as an epicenter for retail activity within the submarket.
Zach Parra, senior associate at Foresite, and Bethany Babcock, principal of Foresite, spearheaded the efforts to bring in a major entertainment anchor to Escala. The site is being developed by N3 Real Estate, a retail developer from the DFW area.
