Dan Markson, developer and WDC partner, passed on Saturday, May 11th. “The WDC mourns the loss of our partner in the Basila Frocks project, Dan Markson,” says Leonard Rodriguez. “Dan was a respected leader and a community asset in the creation of affordable housing in San Antonio.” The WDC partnership with Dan Markson expanded beyond the $3 million Basila Frocks renovation project. “Dan has been our partner and helped revitalize areas of our community that have long-been forgotten, first from the Warehouse 5 project to Basila Frocks. We appreciate the time we had to work collaboratively together,” says Leonard. “We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.”
