The foundation, a local nonprofit that promotes science and technology companies, bought the historic 4.8-acre complex from a partnership affiliated with Dallas developer John Miller.

The complex, which was first built in 1909, is listed on the National Register of Historic places.

It includes eight buildings with about 120,000 sf of space at the northwest corner of Houston and Cherry streets as well as a vacant lot across the street.

The complex was valued at $1.5 million by the Bexar Appraisal District last year.
