CIM Group Expands Penn Field Campus with Addition of 44,000-Square-Foot Creative Office Building

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CIM Group is expanding the creative office space available at Penn Field
campus with the start of construction of a new 44,000-square foot,
two-story building at 3601 South Congress Avenue. The contemporary
building is the first new building and the eleventh in the mixed-use
campus. The new building will be located close to the Congress Avenue
entrance and is designed to accommodate a single user or two
single-floor tenants of approximately 21,000 square feet each.

Known as Building L, following Penn Field’s building nomenclature, the
new creative office space will be fully-modern with all of the
attributes desired by today’s businesses including high ceilings,
outdoor patios and terraces, and large floorplates for flexibility of
configuration. Building L’s exterior design takes cues from the historic
warehouses and industrial character of Penn Field. A soaring double
height lobby accessed from a shaded entry court will infuse the building
with natural light as will the dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows

Penn Field is a 183,855-square-foot, 16-acre, mixed-use property located
at 3601 South Congress Avenue in Austin’s “SoCo” Business District. It
was originally developed in 1918 as an air base for the U.S. Army. The
industrial buildings of post-World War I design have been transformed
over time into what is today a creative campus with a mix of office,
restaurant, and warehouse space in a landscaped setting that is home to
a variety of businesses.

Penn Field is well-located with easy access to major thoroughfares
including I-35, Hwy. 71 and Hwy. 290 and the Bergstrom International
Airport and proximate to numerous residential communities.

Completion of Building L is anticipated in early 2020.
