The EPIcenter project includes the renovation of the existing historic Mission Road Power Plant into a clean energy innovation center with a design focused on innovative research spaces for collaborative work, clean energy building components/exhibits, and capitalizing on the existing infrastructure.
The EPIcenter project will be a visible manifestation of clean energy innovation and will act as an economic engine – transforming an undervalued, and long overlooked industrial area of San Antonio into a vibrant focal point with cutting edge opportunities and with a wealth of new visitors to the area.
Components and amenities within the facility will include a 6,200-square-foot grand lobby and exhibition space; a 15,528-square-foot indoor exhibition hall; a 4,500-square-foot, 400-person auditorium and 3,200-square-foot conference center; an 1,875-square-foot ‘Building and Technology Resource Center’; 18,545 square feet of individual offices and labs; 5,000 square feet of collaborative and open workspaces; a 500-person capacity, 19,000-square-foot outdoor event space and 5,000-square-foot outdoor exhibition space; a 2,755-square-foot café; a 2,380-square-foot fabrication laboratory/demonstration zone.
This will be a four-level facility–three stories above ground and one sublevel.
