Favor finds a favorite spot for new Austin HQ

Favor, the delivery app, recently moved into its new corporate headquarters at 1705 Guadalupe St.

The 12,000-square-foot space houses 120 employees, who came up with the design for the 1970s aesthetic. The Favor app is operated by Austin company NeighborFavor Inc.

“It was incredibly important for us to have our employees heavily involved in the planning and design of our new space,” said Jag Bath, CEO and president of NeighborFavor, in a statement.

The Burt Group handled the tenant improvement, which makes perfect sense. The company has an interesting history that I wrote about previously.

The lease for the space was handled by Brian Liverman and Zack Jamail of Peloton Commercial Real Estate, as representatives of the landlord, and Cortland Lowe of HPI Real Estate & Investments, as representative for NeighborFavor.

NeighborFavor previously was located in 4,000 square feet at 1611 W. Sixth St. The new digs allow for ample expansion. A company spokeswoman said signing the lease and completing the build-out were accomplished in record time — about three weeks.
