2 Austin office buildings get major upgrades


Work is under way to upgrade two Austin office buildings.

Both properties – Capitol Tower, at 206 E. Ninth St., and the five-building Bridgepoint Square development, at 6300 Bridgepoint Pkwy. – are owned by Equity Commonwealth and are being marketed by JLL.

Capitol Tower has a new lobby, while upgrades at Bridgepoint Square include renovated entryways, lobbies, restrooms, light fixtures and more.

A fitness center has also been added at Bridgepoint Square and a new café is on the way.

“We’ve seen increased demand for quality office space across Austin from both established companies experiencing organic growth and new firms entering the market,” JLL senior vice president Kevin Kimbrough said. “Equity Commonwealth has done a superb job repositioning these assets to meet that demand and now have only a few availabilities remaining. These additions and upgrades have created great offerings and position the buildings for long-term success as best-in-class properties.”

Kimbrough is working with JLL vice president Brent Powdrill to market remaining space at both properties.
