Project

Imagine a place to live, work, play, shop, eat and sleep. Then imagine that special place on the shore of Lady Bird Lake, connected with a major intermodal transportation network and designed around a historic art-deco structure. This vision will become a reality with the transformation of the former Seaholm Power Plant site.

This re-development fulfills the vision of the Seaholm District Master Plan and accomplishes several major City Council goals:

Rehabilitate the historic Seaholm building

Create a vibrant mixed-use development that anchors downtown

Plan for multi-modal transportation including pedestrian, bicycle and rail

Create a return on public investment in the form of new tax base from the project

Complete the downtown street grid consistent with the master plan

Once complete, the 7.8-acre site will feature a mix of office space, local retail shops, restaurants, contemporary condos, Traders Joe's (your neighborhood grocery store) and an outdoor terrace that overlooks Town Lake. Such a transformation is also expected to create more than 200 jobs and produce $2 million a year in tax revenue.

The Seaholm Redevelopment Team aims to cater to downtown Austin's thriving cultural and business needs while paying homage to the site's unique history. This urban oasis nestled in the Southwest quadrant of downtown is mere blocks away from:

Austin Music Hall & Austin City Limits Studio

Working & entertaining activities in Austin's West End
