AUSTIN | Google Tower - 500 W. 2nd St. | 122m | 400ft | 28 fl | U/C

Green Water Treatment Redevelopment Block 23



Quote:
Downtown Development Digest:
Green Water Treatment Redevelopment
12/6/13

The Seaholm Redevelopment is destined to have some fun neighbors to the East! In 2008 the city decommissioned the Green Water Treatment Plant and since then plans have been put together to redevelop the equivalent of 4 city blocks. According to austintexas.gov, the former Thomas C. Green Water Treatment Plant was Austin’s first water treatment facility, built in 1925. The planning has been a slow process, but visual progress is finally on the horizon!

According to commercial broker CBRE’s marketing, Block 1 of the Green Water site is confirmed as a mixed-use 38 Story building, including 436 high-end apartments, 30,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, along with 28,000 square feet of creative office space. The building will be situated on the South East corner, bordered by Lady Bird Lake to the South, San Antonio St to the East, Nueces St to the West, and the planned 2nd St extension to the North. The city has chosen developer, Trammell Crow to take on the massive redevelopment, and they have hired the award-winning architecture and design firm, Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB).

The apartment building is just one of the four buildings slated for the Green Water redevelopment. The other 3 blocks planned at the site include a hotel on the North West corner, another residential building on the South West corner, and an office building on the North East corner. We speculate that once CBRE preleases a significant amount of the office building they will announce a construction schedule. Trammell Crow is actively speaking with different hotel groups to find the right partner for the development of the hotel block.

Dirt is about to turn for another downtown Austin high-rise

Quote:
Construction will begin immediately on another office tower in downtown Austin. Trammell Crow Co., in association with Principal Real Estate Investors, formally purchased a parcel at the former Green Water Treatment Plant downtown from the city of Austin in the last few days and is proceeding with a speculative office tower.

The office tower at the northwest corner of Cesar Chavez and San Antonio streets will complement a 440-unit apartment tower that is already going vertical at the so-called Green Water site. See a rendering of that tower here.

"We are pleased to officially kick off the second phase of the Green Water Treatment Plant redevelopment with our partner Principal Real Estate Investors and the city of Austin," said Adam Nims, principal with Trammell Crow Austin, in a statement released to the Austin Business Journal Wednesday.

Beck Commercial Construction is the general contractor on the 29-story, 500,436-square-foot speculative office building at 500 W. Second St. that will be completed by the first quarter of 2017. Gensler is the architect.
