AUSTIN-HBF Group Inc. has renewed its lease for 13,003-sf at 800 Brazos in Austin’s Central Business District and it may take more. Brigham Black, the leasing director of building owner Shidler Group, tells the Austin-based company has taken right of first refusal for the floor plate below its ninth-floor location.

HBF Group, which designs, develops and implements enhanced 911 emergency telecommunications systems, has been in the building about five years.

The 164,741-sf, 14-story 800 Brazos building is one of four Austin buildings totaling 585,000-sf that Shidler bought earlier this year. Jones Lang LaSalle manages and leases the properties. The CDB building is in the midst of a renovation inside and out.

Michael Quint of Jackson & Cooksey has represented HBF and Vic Russo of Jones Lang LaSalle has represented the Shidler Group.

Founded in 1983, HBF Group does business in the United States and around the world. Enhanced 911 systems automatically provide dispatchers with the caller’s location and other crucial information.
