Thousands of attendees celebrated the beginning of the holidays at the seventh annual Lights of Esperanza at Texas A&M – San Antonio. The family-focused celebration brought delicious food, games, a local makers market and entertainment to the center of campus, culminating in an unforgettable laser light show. Lights of Esperanza is the official ‘lighting’ of the A&M-San Antonio campus and VIDA community. Watch for 2023 dates for Lights of Esperanza!
First Homes Completed
Over 70 homes are now under construction, with another 30 pending construction. VIDA’s first homeowners are slated to move in at the beginning of 2023, as the community comes to life with new resident gatherings. VIDA is welcoming residents from across the city to join the vibrant community at the doorstep of one of Texas A&M’s fastest-growing campuses and the future University Health hospital and wellness campus at VIDA.

Is Now the Time to Buy a Home?
Many watch the news and hear about rising interest rates and wonder if now is a good time to buy a home. VIDA home builders understand the concern, and have created great incentives valued from $30,000–$60,000 that include mortgage rate buy-downs, closing cost credits and more to make it easy to purchase your VIDA home now. Contact any of the VIDA builders to learn about incentives that can help make this the right time for you to live VIDA.
Parks & Trails
Ana Park, the first of many parks in VIDA should be completed by the end of the year. The pavilion is complete and the playground and open play lawn will be ready for VIDA families as they begin to move into the community.
Adding to the list of things to enjoy at VIDA, plans for the clubhouse and pool are being finalized with a goal to begin construction in early 2023. VIDA’s clubhouse will include a furnished clubroom, expansive pool, game and homework rooms, catering kitchen and more.
VIDA is also adding more ways for you to get active. By the end of the year, roads and sidewalks will be paved in phase 2 of VIDA and new trails and features will be added in early 2023.
At VIDA, healthy living includes easy access to wellness, healthcare, and beyond. Planning is now underway for the University Health Division of Public Health building, doctor’s offices, and a 140-bed community hospital.
This month, University Health and Texas A&M University have announced a partnership to develop healthcare curriculums that provide additional career paths for students across area high schools and at A&M-San Antonio.
