The new headquarters will encompass 175,000 square feet in two buildings with a 177-space underground parking garage, Johnston said. YETI will be the only tenant in the project that broke ground Feb. 1, he said. The site may include amenities such as a rooftop deck, jogging trail and archery range, he said.
“[YETI] is an outdoor-themed company,” Johnston said. “They are already in the area and their employees live here. The outdoors encapsulates everything they’re about. Similarly, they liked the feel of [Lantana Ridge] in Southwest Austin—outside of the city.”
YETI, founded in 2006, is currently headquartered at 5301 Southwest Parkway, Austin.
“We’re extremely happy to have a company of YETI’s caliber—built and founded in Austin—[at Lantana Ridge],” Johnston said. “We love working with Austin companies and this is a great success story.”
