The Southwest Crossing development, located at the northwest corner of Hwy. 290 and MoPac in Southwest Austin at 5100 W. Hwy. 290, is up and running with about six tenants currently operating out of it and plenty of room for more.

The nearly 30,000-square-foot, four-story building can accommodate various types of businesses; however, the developer, Development 2000, is gearing most of its tenant recruitment toward medical companies.

Construction on the building began in November 2016, Development 2000 Principal John Bundy said. The building was cleared for move-in in mid-November.

The first floor is already to completely leased to five businesses: Performance Therapy Group, a sports medicine therapy company; POREspective, a dermatology and acne control clinic; Austex Pediatrics; Chasen Fitness; and Forte Personal Fitness, Bundy said.

Development 2000, which moved in Nov. 28, occupies about 3,000 square feet on the second floor leaving about 4,700 square feet still available.

The third and fourth floors are also still vacant leaving about 7,651-square-feet open on the third floor and 4,302-square-feet on the fourth floor.

“This has been a long process for us but we’re happy to be here,” Bundy said. “Our employees are excited because it has cut down their travel time to and from work.”

The budiling also includes free parking and a gym as well as access to major retail stores and restaurants and to highly trafficked roads such as Hwy. 71, I-35, Ben White Boulevard and Southwest Parkway.

For information about leasing contact Bundy at 512-306-0100.
