CIM Group Completes 44,000-Square-Foot Creative Office Building at Penn Field Office Campus


AUSTIN, Texas--CIM Group announced today that it has completed the construction of a 44,000-square-foot, two-story building at 3601 South Congress Avenue, expanding the creative office space available at the Penn Field office campus. The contemporary building is the first new building constructed, and the eleventh building in the mixed-use campus.

Located close to the Congress Avenue entrance, the new creative office building is known as the new Building E. Building E has attributes desired by a range of businesses including the large floorplates allowing for flexibility of configuration, high ceilings, natural light from the dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows, and outdoor patios and terraces, features especially preferred in today’s office environment. The new building is designed to accommodate a single user, full floor tenants, or multiple users. The exterior design reflects the industrial character and historic warehouses of Penn Field.

Penn Field is a 183,855-square-foot, 16-acre, mixed-use property located at 3601 South Congress Avenue in Austin’s “SoCo” Business District. It was originally developed in 1918 as an air base for the U.S. Army. The industrial buildings of post-World War I design have been transformed over time into what is today, a lushly landscaped campus with meandering pathways shaded by mature trees -- an ideal setting for variety of businesses, which can enjoy the outdoor environment for employee breaks or for conducting open air meetings.

Penn Field is well-located with easy access to major thoroughfares including I-35, Hwy. 71 and Hwy. 290 and the Bergstrom International Airport and proximate to numerous residential communities.
