The overall project cost is around $27 million. Wilson said the project was not designed to compete with local developers but will be an office park with “large sites and Class A amenities.”

The vision for economic growth must be supported with strong private sector participation, according to Pedro Garza of the EDA.
Garza was a one-time migrant worker who rose to have a position with the EDA’s 5th District.

Garza said it is gratifying to be able to match local dollars and help make the hopes and dreams of communities a reality.
