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.


5:30pm – 6:00pm:
Meet in the Burn’s Building lobby. Mingle in the new coffee shop area where beverages will be provided. One drink ticket per attendee.

6:00pm – 7:00pm:
David Adelman will introduce the project, talk about the history of the building and  redevelopment of the Burn’s into a mixed-use product. Then he will tour the group through the building. The tour will include stops at:

  • Traveler Barbershop
  • Devils River Whiskey distillery space
  • Second Floor spec space
  • Peer 1 Hosting office

7:00pm – 7:30pm:
The tour will end with a mixer at Playland. An area at the bar will be reserved for the ULI group. Drinks and snacks will be served. One drink ticket per attendee.
