Moving Through the Years

Moving-01It’s finally moving day and we are movin’ on up! Literally! After more than 60 years in the Mirano Building, we are headed to the third floor of the newly improved 86|TEN Building located at 8610 Broadway. This building was actually Lane Mitchell’s first project in 1982!

 

Since we love a good flashback, we felt it only fitting to take a look back at our various locations throughout our 96 years. First, our founder, G.W. Mitchell, conducted business from his home office located on Stratford Court just south of downtown, where he worked building homes and apartment buildings. In 1925, as business picked up and the projects became more commercial, it made sense to move downtown to the Builder’s Exchange Building located on Pecan Street where we remained for 30 years. During that time, we completed the Atkins residence, which is now the McNay Art Museum, several projects at Trinity University, the San Antonio Airport and the cement silos at what is now the Quarry.

As downtown became more congested and San Antonio started to expand away from downtown, GWM wanted something more convenient for clients to be able to come to the office. George scoured the town for locations and found the perfect spot on St. Mary’s Street. In 1955, GWM built the ‘Mirano Building’, named after Mitchell, Randol, and Noonan who partnered together to build the building. We called Mirano home for 62 years. Over those six decades, we worked on projects ranging from the Witte Museum, the San Antonio Zoo, and the University of Texas Medical School to the Alamo Sales Museum, Clear Channel Communications Headquarters and Data Center, Alamo Heights United Methodist Church, The Maverick Apartments, and Vista Corporate Center.

We are very excited about this new chapter at our new location, but want you to know that while our location may be changing, our commitment to client satisfaction, completing projects on–time and in-budget will hold true no matter where we call home.
