Ridge, the industrial arm of Transwestern Development Co., has completed construction on a speculative industrial project in Southpark Commerce Center, a newly developed industrial park in Austin. Transwestern’s Luke Wheeler and Nash Frisbie are leasing the three buildings, while Ben Newell, senior vice president of Ridge led the development team.

“The project has received strong interest from a variety of businesses, and we are currently in negotiation with five potential tenants,” said Wheeler, in a prepared statement. “We look forward to continuing to work with Ridge on filling the remaining space.”
