Integral to the transformation of 200 Main Plaza is the architect and developer, Keller Henderson, whose vision and tireless effort over the last five years have been pivotal in bringing this historical edifice not only back to life but doing so in a manner that honors its past. With a keen eye for design rooted in art history, architecture, and fashion, Henderson has adeptly ensured that the building's rejuvenation respects its historical significance while seamlessly integrating it into the vibrant tapestry of San Antonio and the iconic Riverwalk it overlooks.

At the forefront of this monumental task is Newmark, the world-renowned global commercial real estate company where Stewart Skloss serves as the Managing Director-Global Brokerage, alongside his Newmark partner on this historical masterpiece, Eva Horton, Managing Director-Capital Markets. Newmark's involvement in the project underscores the building's significance not only as a piece of local history but also as a cornerstone in the global real estate market. With Newmark's extensive network and expertise, the leasing of 200 Main Plaza is poised to attract international attention, bringing a global perspective to San Antonio's commercial landscape.

Stewart Skloss leverages a rich blend of global experience and local knowledge within his role at Newmark. Combined with his international background, he is uniquely positioned to represent a diverse array of clients, particularly those from Mexico who are also partners in this project. Given San Antonio's proximity to Mexico—just a two-hour drive away, or "Just a conversation away," as the saying goes—Skloss's expertise and connections are invaluable in bridging cultural and geographical divides. His ability to navigate the complexities of international real estate, coupled with his deep roots in the San Antonio area, make him an ideal ambassador for both the city and its burgeoning real estate opportunities.

Bridging cultures and markets, the significance of Stewart Skloss's involvement in the leasing of 200 Main Plaza is illuminated by the remarkable history of his 9th great-grandfather, Juan Curbelo. Curbelo was not only a pivotal figure in the early community of San Antonio but also one of the designers, builders, and founders of the San Fernando Cathedral, a mere stone's throw from 200 Main Plaza. The cathedral, a cornerstone of San Antonio's cultural and spiritual life, was instrumental in shaping the city's identity, serving as a beacon of faith and determination for its early settlers.

The legacy of Juan Curbelo and the cathedral's foundational role in San Antonio's development imbue Stewart Skloss's work at 200 Main Plaza with profound historical resonance. It is a story of full-circle return, where the descendant of one of the city's early architects and visionaries now plays a pivotal role in reimagining a historic building for a new era. This connection underscores a deep-rooted bond to San Antonio, its heritage, and its future, making Skloss's involvement in the project not just a matter of professional pride but also of personal destiny.

The transformation of 200 Main Plaza stands as a cornerstone in the revitalization of San Antonio's historic heart. The refurbishment of 200 Main Plaza with the backing of Newmark and the visionary expertise of Keller Henderson, is emblematic of the broader revitalization of San Antonio's historic core, blending tradition with innovation. It represents a harmonious balance between preserving the rich history of the area and adapting to the needs of the modern city. As Skloss navigates the complexities of leasing such a historic building, he does so with the awareness that he is contributing to the ongoing story of San Antonio, a city that his ancestors helped shape.
