Built in 1913 for the Wolff & Marx, Co. department store, the Rand Building has graced Houston Street with its presence for over a century. Skyscraper architects Sanguinet and Staats of Fort Worth designed the steel frame, concrete, red brick, and terra cotta structure in the Commercial or Chicago School style that was popularized in the early 20th century. Wolff & Marx shut their doors in 1965 and the Rand Building was retrofitted into an office tower. In the 1980’s, the storied structure faced demolition, but was saved by the efforts of the San Antonio Conservation Society. Weston Urban acquired the property in 2013 and commenced a complete interior and exterior renovation. The Rand is now the heart of the Houston Street tech corridor, providing a home for Geekdom, San Antonio’s #1 co-working space.
