The ARK Group is proud to announce that 100% of the planned 100,000 SF office tower at The Irving Music Factory at Las Colinas has been leased to the Irving-based Ethos Group. The Irving Music Factory at Las Colinas has officially started construction and Ethos Group plans to take occupancy in late 2017. Ethos Group representative stated, “We chose The Irving Music Factory at Las Colinas because it provides a unique opportunity to have our own space in an environment that provides great access to amenities for our associates, clients and visitors. Our primary motivation for leasing was to be in an environment that would allow our associates, clients, and visitors to walk to entertainment venues. In addition, our associates include a demographic that enjoys live music, movies, nighttime entertainment, and dining.”
JLL Senior Vice President Andy Leatherman and Managing Director Brad Selner brokered the property lease.
Leatherman said, “JLL is dedicated to meeting the needs of our clients. The Irving Music Factory allows Ethos Group an exciting opportunity to grow in a dynamic location with incredible amenities while remaining centralized in Irving.”
Ethos Group is a privately held training and consulting company and The Irving Music Factory property will serve as its new headquarters. Ethos Group believes that the unique placement of its new headquarters will help attract and retain top talent.
Noah Lazes, President of the ARK Group, said, “Ethos Group is a fantastic addition to The Irving Music Factory at Las Colinas complex. Their many associates will certainly enhance and support The Irving Music Factory entertainment center by attending concerts and movies and frequenting our many restaurants and entertainment venues. We are honored to have Ethos Group on board, and proud to announce that our office space is now 100% sold out.”
