imgres-4HomeAway, the online marketplace for vacation rentals, has signed an 11-year lease to expand to a fourth office in Austin.
The five-story, 114,665 square-foot office at 11800 Domain Blvd. in the Domain shopping complex can accommodate up to 750 employees. HomeAway expects to move in after July of 2014.
The office will be designed for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification and will have “fun, family vacation-themed design elements that reflect the company’s culture and mission,” according to the company.
“Our employees voiced their desire to have an office in North Austin,” Brian Sharples, co-founder and CEO, said in a news release. “With easy access to a new Whole Foods, shopping and other tech companies, The Domain provided the best answer for our growing and geographically disperse HomeAway family.”
Endeavor Real Estate Group, Kent Consulting Engineers, Lauck Group, Shorenstein Properties and Southwest Strategies Group assisted HomeAway in finding the space.
HomeAway’s 200 employees working at a temporary office at 12301 Research Blvd. will move to the new office when it opens.
HomeAway, founded in 2005 in Austin with six employees, now has more than 1,300 employees worldwide.
