SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 15, 2024 / -- Situated just steps away from the Bexar County Courthouse, 200 Main serves as a strategic location for law firms and businesses poised for success in the legal realm. Backed by Newmark's expertise, the property's advantageous location and exceptional features make it a pivotal contributor in setting new standards of success in the industry. This Newmark-listed building, located in the vibrant heart of San Antonio, Texas, resonates with a rich history that seamlessly connects the city’s past with its present.

At the very heart of San Antonio’s historical narrative is 200 Main Plaza (Newmark Brochure Link). This structure represents a blend of architectural beauty, deep-rooted heritage, fateful destiny, and innovative renewal, particularly for Stewart Skloss, the man who is responsible for leasing the building.

When asked about what makes this project special to him, Stewart Skloss explains, “My 4th Great-Grandfather, John William Smith, served as a courier during the 13 day siege at the Battle of the Alamo. Once the battle was over, he became a civic leader and developer. Around 1838, he oversaw much of the legislation and development of Main Plaza that transformed it into a political hub and center for commerce. To have the same family, working on a similar goal, in the same area, nearly 200 years later, is remarkable. Understanding that it is my turn in this on-going narrative and that in 200 years, one of my descendants may be working on 200 Main…it really fills me with a sense of pride and purpose.”

This elegantly refurbished four-story building, with its sophisticated façade and robust structure, has observed the transformation of San Antonio to its present-day status as a thriving urban center. For Stewart Skloss, this project is more than a professional task; it is a personal journey that connects generations, celebrating a family tie to the very roots of San Antonio.

Integral to the transformation of 200 Main Plaza is Keller Henderson (, an architect and developer whose visionary efforts over the past five years have breathed new life into this historical landmark. With a profound understanding of art history, architecture, and fashion, Henderson has meticulously overseen the rejuvenation of the building, ensuring that its historical essence is preserved while seamlessly integrating modern elements. His dedication to honoring the past while embracing the future has been instrumental in shaping the building's restoration.

Stewart Skloss states, “When navigating the renovations of this building, we had to consider the strategic location, pay homage to the history of Main Plaza, and look toward the future for this building that will propel its tenants forward in their industries. The upper levels are designed for a legal firm or similar business to have a prime location within walking distance of the Bexar County Courthouse, and restaurant leasing the lower levels has River Walk frontage."

Leading this significant endeavor is Newmark (, the globally recognized commercial real estate titan. Stewart Skloss, who holds the position of Managing Director-Global Brokerage, and his colleague Eva Horton, Managing Director-Capital Markets, are spearheading the project. Newmark's participation highlights the importance of the building, marking it as not only a piece of local history but also a key asset in the international real estate arena. Leveraging Newmark's vast network and deep expertise, the leasing of 200 Main Plaza is set to draw international focus, adding a global dimension to San Antonio's commercial landscape.

Stewart Skloss brings a rich combination of global experience and local insight to his role at Newmark. His international background positions him ideally to serve a diverse client base, particularly those from Mexico who are involved in this project. Given San Antonio's close proximity to Mexico—merely a two-hour drive, or as the local saying puts it, "Just a conversation away"—Skloss's knowledge and network are crucial in overcoming cultural and geographical barriers. His skill in handling the complexities of international real estate, along with his strong ties to the San Antonio community, make him a perfect representative for both the city and its expanding real estate prospects.

Honoring the past while embracing the future - The significance of Stewart Skloss's involvement in the project is further underscored by his ancestral ties to San Antonio's history. As a direct descendant of Juan Curbelo, one of the early Spanish architects and visionaries of the city, Skloss's work at 200 Main Plaza takes on a deeper resonance. Curbelo's contributions to the construction of the San Fernando Cathedral, located nearby, echo through the generations, symbolizing a legacy of innovation and determination that continues to inspire.

“The revitalization and leasing of 200 Main underscores my calling to honor the legacy of my ancestors. Understanding how my family helped transform San Antonio in its early years reinforces my desire to preserve and promote our cultural heritage through meaningful development. This endeavor is not only about refurbishing a building but also about revitalizing the community, reconnecting with our roots, and ensuring that the stories of those who came before us continue to inspire and educate future generations,” explains Stewart Skloss.

The transformation of 200 Main Plaza represents more than just a restoration project; it signifies the revitalization of San Antonio's historic core. With the support of Newmark and the vision of Keller Henderson, the building serves as a beacon of resilience and renewal, blending tradition with innovation. As Stewart Skloss navigates the leasing this historic gem, he does so with a sense of pride and familial responsibility, knowing that he is contributing to the ongoing story of San Antonio—a city shaped by its past, yet poised for a dynamic future.
