in San Antonio
Mike Casey is the guy in the hat and suit with a bow tie riding his bike all over King William and Southtown. He has been in King William since 1972 when the neighborhood was at the bottom. Lucky for him, because when his landlord asked if he would buy the house he was renting and Mike accepted, word got around and a number of neighbors asked if he would be interested in taking their property off their hands. Over the years, Mike accumulated several properties which he has rented primarily to artists, architects and other tenants in the creative community. He may be best remembered as the owner of the Compound at Sala Diaz.
