Accesso Gets Green Light for MXU Expansion of Austin’s 7700 Parmer Campus

The Austin City Council has approved Accesso Partners’ plan to expand the 911,574-square-foot 7700 Parmer office campus in Austin into a mixed-use lifestyle complex. Accesso plan to add 1,800 multifamily units, 80,000 square feet of retail, 800,000 square feet of office and a 340-key hotel.
Situated adjacent to Apple’s future $1-billion campus, the 129-acre 7700 Parmer site is currently home to a wide range of tech companies. Aquila Commercial principal David E. Putman, who serves as 7700 Parmer’s office leasing agent, said, “As the city continues to grow, adding multifamily, retail and hotel services around office nodes makes sense.

“With more than 900,000 square feet of office on the ground and 800,000 square feet planned, expanding 7700 Parmer to provide housing and services for over 12,000 employees between the 7700 Parmer and Apple office campuses will reduce commute times and allow people to live closer to where they work,” he continued.
