North Forest Office Space Begins Work on Central Texas Project

First building expected to be ready for occupancy in early summer

Williamsville-based North Forest Office Space has taken another step toward bringing its vision to Central Texas.

The company has commenced development of its first Texas project, located in the City of Pflugerville, northeast of the capital city of Austin. According to Brendan Jordan, North Forest’s area manager in Central Texas, the project, which will ultimately feature 34,000 square feet of professional, medical and dental space, is being developed in four phases. Construction is underway of the initial phase of 9,000 square feet of space, which Jordan expects to be ready for occupancy by early summer.

Jordan said that North Forest is excited about the opportunities it sees in Central Texas, particularly as it relates to filling a need the small-to-medium sized professional, medical and dental business segments in which the company specializes.

“Central Texas has seen significant growth over the past ten years, and with that growth comes a need for businesses to locate in the area,” he said. “What we focus on is providing flexible small business solutions. We try to take as much off of the business owner’s plate as possible, so they can concentrate on running their business or medical or dental practice instead of getting overwhelmed by the process of developing an office location. That is what ultimately makes us unique – we do our work so our customers can concentrate on theirs.”

According to US Census Bureau statistics, Pflugerville’s population rose from 16,335 in 2000 to 46,936 in 2010. Located just 15 miles north of downtown Austin, it is location that will be well-served by the addition of professional office space.

“This project adds to our evolving commercial developments by providing much needed professional office space for our growing community's needs,” said Patricia Gervan-Brown, President & CEO of the Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce.

Building on its success in New York and Colorado, North Forest Office Space made the decision to move into Central Texas after studying the market for two and a half years. The company currently operates professional office parks in suburban Buffalo, Rochester and Denver. Jordan sees many similarities between Pflugerville and the company’s other markets.

“One thing that we have learned as we expanded into new markets is that our business model works because the office needs and concerns of business owners are largely the same,” he explained. “Our customers want a presence that is comfortable, convenient and built with their needs in mind. Addressing those needs and concerns in a transparent and cost-efficient way has been the foundation of our success and growth.”

As part of the company’s approach to working with customers, North Forest offers leases for as little as one year at costs starting at $12.50/square foot for new space.

“As business owners, we understand the need for flexibility and the desire for long-term stability when selecting an office location,” Jordan said. “Our process combines the two so our customers can have a location that meets their needs now and grows with them.”

Known for the recognizable peaked roofs of their office complexes, the North Forest team helps tenants analyze their space needs from as small as 130 square feet of executive space up to an entire 13,000-square-foot building, allowing for an office that can grow with the customer’s business. North Forest manages the maintenance of each of its properties, offers straightforward terms and simple-to-read leases, all with the goal of providing customers an efficient and easy experience. The company has active projects in each market it serves, which allows customers multiple space choices and fast occupancy of new or existing space.
