Clarion Partners Adds to its Austin Portfolio with Office and Retail Acquisitions
NEW YORK, NY– Clarion Partners, a leading real estate investment manager, today
announced the expansion of its portfolio in Austin, TX with the purchase of a twobuilding, 171,872 square foot office portfolio and a 59,546 square foot single tenant
retail building. The two-building portfolio is comprised of Mira Vista and The Overlook
and is currently 98.2% leased across a variety of professional service industries. The
retail property, Whole Foods at the Domain, is 100% leased to the specialty and
organic foods grocer. HFF represented the seller for both transactions.
Clarion Partners has made significant investment in the Austin submarket and
surrounding areas in recent months and continues to pursue other opportunities in the
market. Earlier this year, Clarion purchased Las Cimas IV, a 138,008 square foot
institutional quality office building in Austin’s Southwest submarket.
Mira Vista and The Overlook were developed in 2002 and 1999, respectively, and are
occupied with a strong tenant roster across varied industries including finance, real
estate, legal, education and technology. Both buildings are strategically located in
Southwest Austin and provide easy access to some of the most heavily traveled
thoroughfares. Both properties are also highly accessible to the city’s CBD, a number
of retail amenities and high-end residential neighborhoods.
Whole Foods at the Domain, which was completed in late 2013 and opened on March
5, 2014, is located within The Domain mixed-use project, which consists of 1.3 million
square feet of retail space occupied by several high-end retail tenants and
restaurants. The Domain is Austin’s premier lifestyle center and live, work, play
destination outside of downtown Austin.
“We’re excited to expand our portfolio in Austin,” said Brian Watkins, a Managing
Director at Clarion Partners. “This is one of the strongest major metropolitan markets
in the country and we believe the strong location and proximity to amenities make
these assets an excellent addition to our portfolio.”
