AUSTIN, Texas – (Oct. 13, 2015) – Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workspaces, announced today that it has signed a lease for approximately 18,000 square feet at Lamar Central, a Class-A, mixed-use development in Central Austin,  located at 38th St. and N. Lamar Blvd.

“Regus is established internationally and a welcomed addition to the professional work space at Lamar Central,” said Jeff Simmons, Acquisitions and Operations Manager at Highland Resources. “The company is a well-known and growing Austin employer that provides a critical service to local entrepreneurs and businesses seeking temporary or permanent office space.”

The Regus network includes 3,000 locations in more than 900 cities and 120 countries. Regus offers workspaces for businesses of any size – both large and small. Fully furnished offices, meeting rooms, business lounges and community spaces are available for any amount of time.  Companies turn to Regus for affordability, ease of use and as an immediate entry point to business capitals around the world.

“Opening a new business center at Lamar Central will allow us to meet the ongoing demand for flexible office space in Austin,” said Michael Berretta, Vice President, Development, Regus. “The quality of the building, the strategic location and the range of business services we provide enables us to accommodate our diverse client base, which ranges from start-ups to Fortune 500s. The location is convenient and close to housing options, desirable neighborhoods and local attractions. This spot also puts us a few minutes from downtown, as well as just south of the tech campuses and growth occurring in North Austin.”

The new office suite will overlook 38th Street and a portion of N. Lamar Blvd. and will be Regus’ 10th location in Austin.  Regus is anticipated to open its doors by spring of 2016.

“The superior office design and green building features of Lamar Central are important to us; we are responsible for delivering the very best workplace environments and top-of-the-line technology to our customers. They depend on us to stay current and on trend with the competitive landscape in Austin,” said Michael Berretta, Vice President, Development, Regus. “Plus, we are able to offer our employees amenities like garage parking, car-2-go stations, bike storage and multiple dining options, as well as an open-air courtyard with seating and green space.”

Cushman & Wakefield/Oxford Commercial negotiated the lease on behalf of Highland Resources, and John Childers and Jake Ragusa of JLL negotiated the lease on behalf of Regus.

“The expansion to Lamar Central is a smart move for Regus and further establishes its presence as a leading workspace solutions provider in a market that has increasingly become a destination for national and international employers,” said John Childers, Senior Vice President at JLL.

“The office space is exceptional at Lamar Central and the attention to detail and high-end design is an ideal match for a savvy company like Regus,” said Bob Wynn, Partner and Co-Founder at Oxford Commercial. “As the go-to provider for companies expanding locally and into the Austin market, it’s important that Regus operate from the very best office space to meet demand and attract great talent.”

Accompanying Regus at Lamar Central is Austin-based Kendra Scott Jewelry, who has secured the entire fourth floor of the building to relocate the company’s headquarters and will also open a storefront on the ground floor.

Denver-based restaurant, Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, is also moving into a ground-floor retail space. The breakfast and lunch destination boasts a fresh and innovative menu, as well as extensive cocktail offerings.

Lamar Central is nearing completion and is anticipated to open later this month. The four-story, 165,000-square-foot, mixed-use development features more than 132,000 square-feet of column-free office space with an additional 33,000 square-feet of retail and restaurant space.
