As workers return to offices, employers increasingly are seeking buildings with plenty of amenities to help lure them back, said Neville Rhone Jr., managing partner of Arc Capital Partners.

“Westview is an incredible boutique property that adds to our Austin portfolio in an increasingly vibrant and walkable location,” Rhone said. “With its Class A amenities and dramatic roof deck, Westview is exactly the kind of creative space that pulls employees back to the office.’’

According to the publication, Westview is currently about 93% leased.

Westview is located at 316 W. 12th St. at the intersection of Guadalupe and 12th streets. The Prescott Group bought Westview in 2016 and quickly renovated it into LEED Gold creative office space with the help of local contractor The Burt Group and architects at Andersson Wise.

The property boasts a live-work-play location with more than 2.9 million square feet of retail nearby and more than 3,000 multifamily units and is only blocks away from the University of Texas at Austin.

The JLL Capital Markets debt team representing Arc Capital Partners was led by Senior Managing Director Jeff Sause, Managing Director Casey Wenzel, and analyst Matthew Ctvrtlik; and the JLL Capital Markets sales team representing Prescott Group was led by Senior Managing Directors Andrew Levy and Todd Savage and Managing Directors Kelsey Shebay and Jeff Coddington.
