Size: 230,000 SF
Year Built: 1928

Completed in 1928, the year before the Great Depression swept through America, the Milam Building is an impressive example of the grandeur of the roaring twenties. Rising 21 stories into the air, it was the tallest brick and concrete reinforced structure in the United States. It was also the first high-rise air-conditioned office building in the country, boasting a Carrier “Manufactured Weather” system that was a marvel of mechanical engineering. Designed by architect George Willis, who apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright before moving to San Antonio, the Milam is a classic early Twentieth-Century skyscraper in the Spanish Revival style, but with a Chicago School twist. Weston Urban acquired the building in 2016 and has commenced a total “Milam makeover” that will maintain the stunning historic features of the building while bringing the office spaces into the 21st century.
