AUSTIN, TX --(Marketwired - February 03, 2016) - ​As Austin continues to grow and more modern buildings arise, these newly built spaces can become the perfect setting for a very unique event. Introducing itself as an event venue available during SXSW is the eastside's newest arrival, HANDSOME's flagship headquarters.

HANDSOME, a human-­centered design and technology company, recently finished construction on their future headquarters and saw great opportunity in making it available for rental. "The Austin community is where we started and supporting the community is very important to us; our headquarters was designed with the community in mind. Beyond SXSW we plan on co-­hosting events with our client partners and on a grassroots level ranging from hands on workshops to industry­wide panel discussions and talks," says HANDSOME's Chief Strategy Officer Valerie Vacante.

This stand-alone building boasts a solid 7500 sq ft of open space and is the definition of prime location, 1000 East 6th Street. With 120 feet of floor­-to-­ceiling windows along 6th Street, raw features and empty space, the HANDSOME building is a great blank canvas for creative activations such as an art gallery, lounge, pop-­up or other events. To take it up a notch, there is also a large, attached, gated parking lot -- perfect for an outdoor concert.

Because it is the future home of HANDSOME, care has been put into each detail including a copper top bar, unique shelving, and a great breakdown of space. There are five to seven individual rooms that are perfect to host panels, discussions, vendor booths or exhibits. With six bathrooms, AC and electricity, it is sure to be a haven from the sun.

It is the first space of its kind to become available for SXSW, and has great potential to be an exclusive locale during the festival. ​Handsome sits perfectly located in­-between the Spotify House, the Fader Fort, Fair Market and half­-a-­dozen of some restaurant and bars.

This space is currently available to rent from March 11th-­20th. For more details and booking inquiry about the space and parking lot, please contact Alexis Neal at 512­-626-­6191 or ​alexis@atxeventspace.com.
