The new Plaza Saltillo District has broken ground, CultureMap Austin reports.
The 10 acre lot sits between I-35, Comal Street, East 4th Street, and East 5th Street and will be transformed into a huge mixed-use development that aims to become the hub of east Austin. It will feature 800 residential units (140 of them affordable), 140,000 square feet of office space in an 8 story building, 110,000 square feet of retail, and 1.4 acres dedicated to green space. Over 1,700 people are forecast to use the space for living or working once it is complete.
The district will be centered around the Plaza Saltillo Capital Metro Station that currently has the Red Line Commuter train and eventually will have more Austin B-cycles, an extension of the Lance Armstrong Bikeway, car2go access, and parking that will be below the development.
The stakeholders in the project are excited to see their vision address two of the biggest problems in Austin: mobility and affordability, after 20 years of planning.
