ULI/SA INSIDER’S TOUR & MIXER: The Burns Building + Playland!
ULI San Antonio’s Young Leaders Group is hosting an exclusive Insider’s Tour of the Burns Building with AREA Real Estate, followed by a Mixer at Playland, located just across the street in The Maverick.
The historic Burns Building is undergoing a transformation into 45,000 sq. ft. of place-changing, collaborative office space. Situated between Broadway and Jefferson streets, the five-story historic building has been redeveloped into a multi-tenant office environment with a new first floor reception area, single-floored tenants and a couple of smaller spaces in the basement and mezzanine. PricewaterhouseCoopers and Cogeco Peer 1 moved into offices on the third and fourth floors. On the ground floor and basement, Dallas-based Devils River Whiskey is moving its headquarters and is opening a distillery and tasting room. Additionally, on the ground level, barber Chuck Holdridge and a to-be-announced coffee shop are moving in in the coming months.
A tiny park — or, parklet, as they’re called — is also slated to be built along the Burns Building on Jefferson Street, where there are four 2-hour metered parking spots currently. The parklet is modular, meaning pieces of it can be removed and replaced with other pieces.

Meet in the Burn’s Building lobby. Mingle in the new coffee shop area where beverages will be provided. One drink ticket per attendee.
