Local jewelry maven Kendra Scott announced she's relocating her company's South Congress Avenue headquarters for a new space in Central Austin. Kendra Scott Design, Inc. will anchor Lamar Central, a soon-to-open mixed-used development near 38th Street and Lamar Boulevard, with both the company's corporate offices and a new retail store. 

"It was critical that we found a location that truly represents our brand, our creativity, and our teamwork, and Lamar Central is the perfect fit," said Scott in a press release. The company, which signed a 10-year lease, will take over the entire fourth floor of Lamar Central and operate a Kendra Scott storefront on the ground level. 

“This development has been in the works for a long time because we’ve wanted to do it the right way," said David Bodenman, vice president of Lamar Central's developer Highland Resources. "It’s incredibly rewarding to see that effort and attention to detail recognized by someone like Kendra Scott.” 

Construction of Lamar Central is slated to be completed in third quarter 2015. Kendra Scott Design is expected to make the move to Lamar Central by the end of the year.
