The 5,000-square-foot former offices of Bottle Rocket Apps could hardly contain the virtual and literal explosion of this mobile app developer’s business. Enter Newmark’s Jeff Eiting and Clay Vaughn, who located a space three times as big to house one of the most innovative and fastest growing tech companies in the area.
Bottle Rocket Apps has signed on for a new long-term, 15,000-square-foot lease at Wellington Centre at 14643 Dallas Parkway. The cutting-edge firm is known for many of its own apps found in Apple’s App Store along with award-winning work with NPR, PBS, Disney, ESPN, Discovery Channel, American Express, AARP, TBS, TNT, National Geographic, Bravo, SPIN Magazine, BET and Starwood among others. Bottle Rocket Apps has won many distinguished industry accolades including several App of the Week awards by Apple, Best App Ever by 148Apps and the Vanguard Media Award. Recently, three of Bottle Rocket’s apps were inducted in Apple’s iPad Hall of Fame, a first for the industry.
“Jeff and Clay understood the kind of creative atmosphere we needed and the flexibility needed to accommodate our explosive growth,” says Bottle Rocket’s founder and president Calvin Carter. “Being at the forefront of mobile technology means our company has to move fast, be nimble and respond to the ever-changing landscape of our industry. Jeff and Clay got that.”
“Bottle Rocket is truly a leader in its field, which is expanding at lightning speed. Just look at all the people who are walking around with their smartphones,” says Newmark’s Eiting. “We knew that we needed to plan for Bottle Rocket’s future, as well as the present situation of having to house immediate growth. The result was finding the ideal space that also gives them an opportunity to create an identity through office design and monument signage that is visible from the Tollway. The landlord was able to react quickly and meet our needs.”
Wellington Centre is a 10-story, 210,000-square-foot, Class A building featuring a perched sky lobby with granite floors and skylighted atriums, near the North Dallas Tollway and Parkway. A DART station is located in front of the building.
