Industrious, a New York-based co-working developer, opened its first Austin location Thursday at 201 W. Fifth St. in the new downtown office tower built by Lincoln Property Co.
The entire 11th floor is occupied by Industrious, which operates in 11 major U.S. markets.
“Austin was an easy choice for us,” said Leah Alexander, Industrious national launcher. “It is a hub of innovation and so it was a shoe-in.”
Lincoln Property Co.’s new 5th+Colorado tower presented the optimal opportunity.
“It’s a beautiful building and the location is perfect,” Alexander said. “It’s all about floor-to-ceiling windows and parking.”
Industrious places a premium on cool design, employing an in-house design team that carries out common themes across the U.S. but also embraces style idiosyncrasies that define different cities.
The Austin facility, covering just more than 19,000 square feet, includes elements of an urban residential loft with more conventional office characteristics. Click on the photo with this story to see a slideshow of the property.
