With construction of the shell and core underway, AFS will soon open the Creative Media Center at Austin Studios. The adapted former Armory building will feature 15,000sf of leasable office space situated around a central lobby and shared meeting, screening, and break room amenities; Stage 7 includes 23,500sf of production space.  Fronting Tilley Street, the building is framed by native grass lawns, courtyards, and a paseo. The project is a result of a partnership with the City of Austin, who provided $5.4MM in 2012 Bond Funds for design and initial construction.

For pre-leasing information, please contact Austin Studios Manager Chris Engberg.



We’ve been watching this project for years: when will the CMC finally open?

Everyone knows how development goes in Austin!  The initial phase of construction, which deploys the 2012 Bond Funds toward a LEED-certified shell and core, was completed in the Fall of 2019. From there, we’ll be finishing out the tenant spaces and amenities in phases.

Do you have any tenants signed on yet?  When will you be pre-leasing?

We’re not ready to announce anything yet or pre-lease the building, but stay tuned for more details.

What kinds of tenants do you want?

Austin Studios has the best tenants and we want to add to our powerhouse roster!  The CMC is designed as creative office dedicated to filmmakers, production companies, writers, editors, artists, and vendors who wish to participate in our active film/television/digital media community.

What size spaces do you have available?

The CMC will accommodate companies who need anywhere from 100sf – 7,000sf of space.

Was the CMC designed with any environmentally-friendly features?  
Yes! The CMC is pursuing LEED Silver Certification through the USGBC and incorporates many energy-saving, water-saving, and air-quality features. All tenants will benefit from these improvements: read more about the features here.
