BACKGROUND

The site is one of the last owned by the City of Austin downtown that is designated for redevelopment.  It consists of two parcels – 1215 Red River Street and 606 East 12th Street – summing to 1.73 acres of land near Interstate Highway 35, the State Capitol, and the University of Texas at Austin.  The northeast district of downtown Austin blends iconic live music clubs, world-class parks and open spaces, and respected healthcare institutions. 

Background

The publicly owned land at 6909 Ryan Drive is a 5.5-acre property adjacent to Capital Metro’s Crestview Station. Austin Energy purchased the site in 1997 for their operations but will relocate these functions in the near future as it is currently being used for storage.
