AUSTIN - Two companies new to Austin have signed leases in the Colorado Tower currently under construction at 303 Colorado St. in downtown Austin’s warehouse district.
Parsley Energy is moving its headquarters from Midland and has secured 73,843 sf in the building. About 50 employees will move from Midland and dozens more will be recruited in Austin immediately, according to Parsley Energy.
Australia-based Atlassian Software Systems Pty Ltd. has also signed for 24,411 sf and could bring as many as 300 jobs to the area.
Hendricks said Colorado Tower now is about 51 percent preleased with about 180,000 sf still available. The first tenants will move into the 30-story building in December, while most of the currently signed tenants will move in by next summer.
