Computer Solutions Leases 20,540 Square Feet in New Construction Business Park in San Antonio’s North Central Submarket
SAN ANTONIO—November 9, 2020. Worth & Associates, San Antonio’s premier commercial real estate developer, today announced it has signed a 20,540 square-foot lease with Computer Solutions, which will become the first tenant in Walker Ranch Business Park, Worth’s 135,000-square-foot office and flex development in the city’s high-demand north central submarket.
“We are pleased that a long-time San Antonio company like Computer Solutions will be our first tenant in Walker Ranch Business Park,” said Worth & Associates Senior Vice President of Leasing and Acquisitions Shawn Gulley. “Like Worth, Computer Solutions has made San Antonio its home for decades, they know the city well and are highly regarded by the local business community. Without a doubt, their presence will attract more high-caliber tenants to our Walker Ranch project, and we look forward to a long-term, mutually rewarding relationship.”
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in San Antonio, Computer Solutions is a leading provider of complex technology consulting, outsourced IT services and product procurement for businesses throughout Central and South Texas. The space in Walker Ranch Business Park Building II, which will serve as the company’s new headquarters and house some 90 employees, consists mainly of offices, with some warehouse space. Construction of Building II started last June and is progressing on schedule, with a projected move-in date of April 1, 2021.
“Culture is critically important to us and despite the fact that we have proven we CAN work remote, we feel strongly that an in-person environment greatly improves our ability to create stronger bonds with both our team members and our customers,” said Carolyn Labatt, Computer Solutions CEO. “We chose Walker Ranch Business Park because the location, amenities and ability to influence the design from the ground up will allow us to not only plan our space around our highly-used ping pong table, but also showcase our onsite technology lab where we can collaborate and demo solutions using the latest and greatest tools and technologies.”
Russell T. Noll, CCIM of Transwestern, represented Computer Solutions in lease negotiations. Russell stated “in working with Carolyn Labatt and Computer Solutions for over 25 years I had a deep understanding of what their priorities were – employee and customer beneficial location, quality building, ability to build out the space to meet their current and future needs, competitive economic lease package and most importantly, a landlord who would be responsive and provide exceptional service levels. Walker Ranch Business Park certainly met the facility requirements. I knew that Worth & Associates would provide tremendous service based on my experience with them over the past 30+ years.”
Located on 10.8 acres at the corner of Wurzbach Parkway and West Avenue in San Antonio’s burgeoning north central submarket, Walker Ranch Business Park will consist of two Class A office buildings with separate gated, controlled-access entrances off West Avenue and Wurzbach Parkway.
Walker Ranch Business Park will provide high visibility, excellent access to major thoroughfares and close proximity to San Antonio International Airport. The park will be situated in the midst of abundant green space and parkland, with direct access to the hike-and-bike trail, and only a short walk from the 30-plus-acre Walker Ranch Historic Landmark Park. The development is conveniently located near a myriad of retail, restaurant and hospitality amenities, and provides quick drive times to Stone Oak, Alamo Heights and downtown San Antonio.
Building I will be a 58,000 square foot, two-story office building with Class A finishes, featuring suites ranging in size from 1,500 square feet to 3,500 square feet, 10-foot ceilings and a 4/1,000 parking ratio, with covered parking available. General amenities will include a fully equipped break room, two state-of-the-art conference rooms, a common area Wi-Fi access, multiple outdoor break areas and an exterior courtyard along the banks of Salado Creek hike and bike trail.
Building II will be a 78,000 square-foot Class A flex office building with 26-foot clear height and the ability to add up to 37,000 square feet of mezzanine space for a total of 115,000 square feet. Class A amenities will include a 5/1,000 parking ratio, roof skylights, outdoor break areas and porches.
“We designed Walker Ranch to be the ideal choice for tenants interested in a new North Central office location on the Salado Creek Greenway,” said Worth & Associates Vice President of Development Charlie Fulton. “We have arranged our suites and common areas in Building I around a creek side courtyard so tenants can enjoy the natural environment throughout their workday. Additionally, we have the ability to add creative mezzanine or warehouse space to any office in Building II.”
