Located at the convergence of Guadalupe Street, West 5th Street, San Antonio Street and West 4th Street, adjacent to the new Federal Courthouse, Republic Square is one of three remaining Downtown Historical Squares. The City of Austin’s Parks and Recreation Department (PARD), the Downtown Austin Alliance, the Austin Parks Foundation and a team of consultants led by Design Workshop are planning for the future of this important public space.
The project phases include the following:
- Master Plan Update - The team will engage stakeholders and the public to assess and update the existing Republic Square Vision Plan.
- Phase II Design and Construction - Subsequent to the completion of the Master Plan, the team will prepare construction documents and technical specifications and oversee construction of the Phase II improvements.
- Public-Private Partnership Report - Team will create a strategy for sustainable public-private partnerships for the park’s on-going enhancement, operations, and maintenance.
