In 2007, Rackspace Hosting moved into the former Windsor Park Mall in Windcrest, a suburb of San Antonio.
Rackspace set up its main headquarters in the old Mervyn’s department store.
Now the global web hosting company has expanded further into the former mall’s food court and the Rackspace culture of fun continues to permeate the new space. Rackspace has added a two-story sleek steel tubular slide, along with colorful Gondolas, repurposed from the old and now defunct skyline ride at Brackenridge Park downtown.
Graham Weston, chairman of Rackspace, says the company has nearly 3,000 employees in San Antonio now. It’s also moving its employees from its former headquarters on Datapoint Drive. The mall headquarters is dubbed “The Castle” after the Britsh monarchy’s Windsor Castle.
Eventually Rackspace plans to convert the entire 1.2 million square foot mall into “Tech Town,” a vibrant technology campus complete with a park for outdoor recreation.
