USAA plants its flag in downtown San AntonioUSAA plants its flag in downtown San Antoniohttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=18942015-01-27T08:14:00Z2015-01-26T00:00:00Z

SAN ANTONIO - After the flight of AT&T headquarters to Dallas in 2008, downtown San Antonio commercial real estate remained stagnant. That makes it even more significant that insurance and financial giant USAA makes a strategic move into the urban core.

In 2013, USAA Real Estate Company acquired One Riverwalk Place, 700 N. St. Mary’s St. — located on the River Walk just a few blocks from the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.

Most of the building remains occupied by existing tenants, but room was made for the first wave of USAA employees to set up shop early in 2015.

Employees assigned to downtown come from an array of departments, including Enterprise Affairs, the General Counsel’s office, Member Experience, Information Technology and the Chief Administration Office.

Ultimately, about 150 employees will be working downtown by the end of March. In the near-term, USAA will occupy three floors of the 18-story building downtown.

The remaining floors are leased to law firms, investment companies, and other tenants. The 261,633-sf building is currently 100 percent leased and occupied.
