Newmark is pleased to announce that it has successfully represented Ride Right in leasing 24,000 square feet at 817 W. Howard Lane in Austin, Texas. Ride Right signed the long-term lease following Newmark’s strategic analyses and negotiation of suitable, local options for the growing firm.
Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Ride Right is a transportation firm offering solutions for paratransit, non-emergency, fixed route, shuttle, special needs transportation and mobility management. Ride Right provides more than one million trips per year in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas. The firm selected Newmark to assist in finding an additional location in Austin due to a recent expansion. Newmark Associate Jacob Hernandez led the brokerage team representing Ride Right in cooperation with Senior Managing Director Corey Chase. The team provided site selection services for Ride Right, along with lease negotiations and financial analyses, ultimately securing the long-term lease at 817 W. Howard Lane based on its strategic location and large parking lot for Ride Right’s vehicles. The firm is taking occupancy of the new space this month.
“I have had the pleasure in representing Ride Right, an Newmark national client, on multiple transactions over the years,” said Chase. “We are pleased to assist this client yet again, this time in re-assessing Ride Right’s strategy and expanding its footprint in Austin, Texas.”
“Ride Right was in need of an additional, well-located space to support the company’s overall long-term business plan,” said Hernandez. “817 W. Howard Lane used to be an airport hangar, so the clear span warehouse space and abundance of parking was a perfect fit for our client.”
The selected property features 24,000 square feet of warehouse/flex/office space, clear span warehouse, grade level loading, outside storage and heavy parking. Situated amongst the 220-acre Tech Ridge Business Park, 817 W. Howard Lane offers easy access to IH-35, TX-Loop1, TX-45, TX-130 and is located approximately eight miles from Austin’s Central Business District.
