Austin, TX —

A ceremonial groundbreaking was held on November 13th, 2019 for Eastlake at Tillery located at 3212 East Cesar Chavez Street in Austin, Texas. The developer, investors, construction, design and leasing teams gathered to celebrate the kickoff of the construction.

“East Austin is one of the most dynamic office submarkets in the country, and CREA is pleased to have begun construction on Eastlake at Tillery. We believe that our innovative lobby design, extensive outdoor areas, and highly functional office plates will be the perfect fit for any tenant looking to grow in East Austin,” said Victor Young, Principal with Cypress Real Estate Advisors (“CREA”).

The 172,000-sf office development will be comprised of two, three-story buildings served by an adjacent parking structure. Located at the northeast corner of East Cesar Chavez Street and Tillery Street, the project sits just behind the popular East Austin restaurant Grizzelda’s. The site is at the center of the highly desirable and authentically “Austin” East Cesar Chavez district and is surrounded by the likes of Jacoby’s, Tillery Kitchen & Bar, Sawyer & Co., Lustre Pearl East, Kerumi Tatsu-Ya, Pitchfork Pretty, and more.

Available office space will feature abundant natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows and offer private tenant patios. Additionally, property amenities will include a prep kitchen and flexible gathering spaces, bike storage and rentals, fitness facility with showers, plentiful outdoor spaces, and rotating art installations.

“We memorialized a great milestone today. If there was any doubt, our market can now witness – in no uncertain terms – that we are open for business. We’ve observed great excitement around the concept, and we’re eager to see that energy materialize in the form of some new leases.” said Ben Tolson, Principal with AQUILA Commercial.

The project is being developed by CREA. East Austin architecture firm Delineate Studio designed the building, and Blacksmith Collaborative is the landscape architect. Harvey Cleary will serve as general contractor, and Epic Project Management Group is the project manager. AQUILA Commercial has the leasing assignment for the property.

“We are excited to be a part of this local team helping to thoughtfully grow our community through creative planning, design, and construction that will inspire collaboration and creativity,” said James McCurley, Director with Harvey Cleary.

Eastlake at Tillery will be ready for tenant improvement in December 2020. For more information on the project, please visit To schedule interviews with stakeholders, contact Lauren Little at 512.684.3833.
