That it does. It may cost more to build underground, but it's well worth it at the end.

Google this: Tech giant takes huge portion of Green Water Treatment redevelopment project



Quote:
Jan Buchholz/ Staff Writer-Austin Business Journal
Mar. 13. 2015

After months of speculation, Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG) confirmed Friday that it is taking a major portion of the new office building under construction at the Green Water Treatment Plant — some 200,000 square feet.

A memorandum of lease was sent to Travis County officials, based on information provided to Austin Business Journal by Google's local public relations firm, Elizabeth Christian Public Relations.

Man, if only they could do something about that electrical transformer yard.

I guess its just too complicated to re-route wires and not worth trying to redevelop it?

I wonder if it would be possible to build an indoor power substation, perhaps stacked vertically so it takes up only a small corner of the block. Then a building could go up around it?

That would be a great idea to take out that substation.

Austin region population passes two million

Quote:
The five-county area (Williamson, Travis, Hays, Caldwell and Bastrop) gains about 60,000 new residents a year. In the metropolitan region, the population is 2,020,452

The traffic may not be much fun in 15 years either, when another one million people are expected to live here. The total estimated population for the five-county area in 2030 is three million people.

The city demographer estimates the Austin region passed the two million mark in July or August.

Nah. Leave it. It adds character to the area. Makes it that much more unique and...dare I say it...weird.

Two new hotels to add 1,000 rooms to Austin market

Quote:
White Lodging Services Corp. plans to add almost 1,000 hotel rooms in two planned projects, one in downtown Austin and the other near the University of Texas, the company told the Austin American-Statesman.

Near the UT campus, White Lodging said it will build an 11-story, 347-room hotel that will be the first dual-branded hotel in Austin to feature the Autograph Collection and AC by Marriott brands. Construction is to start next summer on the project at 1901 San Antonio St., with an opening date in early 2019. Each hotel brand in the project will have its own lobby and entrance, but will share some services, such as housekeeping.

White Lodging, a hotel investment, development and management company based in Merrillville, Ind., also released new details on a previously announced hotel project planned near the Austin Convention Center downtown.

That hotel will be a full-service Marriott with 615 rooms and will rise 30 stories at Cesar Chavez and Trinity Streets, White Lodging said. It is due to break ground in May 2017, with a targeted summer 2019 opening.
