San Antonio’s RackSpace to Ditch the “Castle”, Downsize

Rackspace Technology told employees that after 14 years in the “Castle”, the company will be moving to a smaller office space in North San Antonio. They will be moving from an iconic, one million square foot building, with its own interior playground slide, to a new office with only 90,000 square feet. Rackspace’s new home will be at RidgeWood Plaza II, an office space just north of Loop 1604 and near U.S. Highway 281.

“With the changes in our global model and new ways of working,” said RackSpaces’s Casey Shilling, “we are relocating this office and investing in the customer and Racker experience in a new, modern location to best serve our business needs in the future.” A Racker is what the RackSpace employees call themselves. The new office is closer to where a lot of the employees live, and since the pandemic, a large number now work remotely. The Castle used to be the old Windsor Park Mall.
