Texas-based James Avery Artisan Jewelry opened The Artisan at James Avery Plaza in September. The development houses a regional office for the company, a James Avery retail store and additional space for other office tenants.

The 9-acre office development totals 38,595 square feet, including the 22,000-square-foot regional office and 16,000 square feet for commercial tenants, according to a Dec. 20 company release. The building was designed in "homage to the craft of jewelry-making." The company sells women’s and men’s jewelry designed in Kerrville, Texas.

The building is surrounded by live oak trees, green spaces and pedestrian trails "to emulate the retreat-like experience found in their Hill Country headquarters."

“Although our corporate offices will remain in Kerrville, as they have for over 65 years, we’re excited to expand our facilities in Cedar Park,” CEO John McCullough said in the release. “Our teams have worked very hard on the impressive building and beautiful workspace.”

About 50 associates work out of the Cedar Park office and remote associates can work from the building as well, according to the company.

The company also moved its Cedar Park retail store into The Artisan at James Avery Plaza in August. It was previously in the 1890 Ranch shopping center.

Cedar Park City Council approved an economic development agreement in 2019 with the Texas-based company for incentives totaling $507,500. City Council also approved a 380 economic development agreement with James Avery, in which the city is agreeing to pay the company the rollback tax revenue it receives from the project.

James Avery Artisan Jewelry's regional office is located off Scottsdale Drive at 6300 183A Toll Road, Ste. 150, Cedar Park. www.jamesavery.com
