The Lynd Co. has broken ground on a new corporate headquarters in Shavano Park, Texas, just a few miles away from the company’s current San Antonio location. The multifamily management and development firm plans to move into its new space in the summer of 2019.

Located at 4280 N. Loop 1604 W., the three-story office building will encompass 35,000 square feet with an open floorplan and contemporary design, including a two-floor lobby and an all-glass elevator. The third-floor executive offices will wrap around a mezzanine, while the offices and conference rooms will feature butt-glazed glass.

The property will include a 1,200-square-foot military museum on the ground floor, which will display artifacts and memorabilia from the Vietnam War, where company Founder Michael Lynd Sr. served as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army. Invest in America’s Veterans Foundation will sublease the museum area, which will be open to the public. Additionally, Lynd will host periodic, free lunches for veterans on the building’s rooftop terrace.

“We’ll not only have multiple rooms tailored for impromptu brainstorming and break-out sessions, the building will have cutting-edge technology so that our real-time performance metrics at the property level are visible at all times,” CEO David Lynd said in prepared remarks.

The Bank of San Antonio provided construction financing for the project. Lynd hired RVK as architect and interior designer and selected Metro as general contractor—both San Antonio-based companies. The real estate firm has leased 20,000 square feet of office space for the past 15 years at the Forum Building located at 8000 Interstate 10 West.

San Antonio’s construction sector has been leading the way in job expansion in the past quarters. With several notable projects underway—such as Frost Bank Tower, Essex Modern City and University Village—the metro is prone to further growth.
