​​AUSTIN - Yeti, the fast-growing premium cooler and drinkware company, will be moving its headquarters to a new, larger Southwest Austin campus next year. ​

The company has signed a deal to build a 175,000-sf complex at Lantana Ridge, which is about two miles from Yeti's current headquarters. The building will be 100 percent leased by Yeti.

The new campus will be at 7601 Southwest Pkwy. and will consist of two 87,500-sf buildings. ​​

The company said site work has already begun for the new campus, and construction is slated to start this summer, with the project expected to be completed by first quarter 2017.

The finished project plans call for amenities in line with the company's outdoor lifestyle brand, such as an archery range, sports courts, barbecue pits, a rooftop terrace and a jogging trail.​

Yeti, which had 120 workers in 2014, said the buildings will accommodate its current workforce "with room planned for future headcount growth." ​​

The company declined to say how many workers the new complex could house, but did say the new campus would include 807 parking spaces.​

Yeti is also heavily involved in two other real estate projects in Southwest Austin—one for new offices and another for a research and development facility.

The Yeti Product Development Lab is planned for 20,000 sf at 4635 Boston Lane, according to documents filed at the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

The project, which was submitted Feb. 1, is valued at $1.75 million. The development lab is being designed by Lauckgroup.

Yeti has also ​remodeled 4,580 sf for offices at 5301 Southwest Parkway. 

That project was valued at $61,350, according to records. The remodel passed its final building inspection Feb. 5.

Founded in 2006 by brothers Roy and Ryan Seiders, Yeti has gained a huge following of fans for its nearly indestructible "grizzly proof" coolers.
