North Lamar Development Thread
 
A good place to start is this recent Towers article, pointing out some of the recent parcels we've been discussing.

Does the picture imply they're deleting the yield-right-turn?

Got a notice of an application for approval of a site plan in the mail today. The project is called 'TSSF Office Complex Part B' located at 7620 Guadalupe street. The proposal is for "an office building, parking garage, and offsite parking, with all associated improvements".

This is for that weird block between Lamar, Anderson/183, Guadalupe and Morrow.

A parking garage suggests this may be a significant upgrade. I was wondering when this block was going to start seeing redevelopment, and it looks like the time is now.

Fencing set up around the old Honda dealership along Koenig for a new multi-family mid-rise.

Lamar Station is single story retail? Seems like a waste.

That's a pretty grand name for such a low-effort building. Semi-interesting side note: Lord's Gym (listed on the last page of the plan) is the boxing gym currently standing where the new Crestview Highline mixed use will go. Doesn't seem like the type of business that would do well in a newer building with presumably higher rent. Maybe he's the owner?

This is the first I've heard of "Crestview Skyline"...which appears to be located in Brentwood, btw. :)

This is less than 1/2 mile from my house. Am I reading it correctly? Five stories high? I think it's great, since improvement to that stretch of Lamar is long overdue in my opinion. But I'm really surprised that I've heard no complaints from my neighbors. Not even gossip! Thanks for posting.

Regarding my previous post (directly above), I really do wonder whether I'm reading the document correctly.

Does this mean that a five-story building was approved on Lamar, at the current site of Richard Lord's Boxing Gym? I thought that section of Lamar was limited to 3-4 stories. Like, whatever the height of Crestview Station is.

I'm not complaining at all. I've been living in that area for 12 years and I welcome every improvement to that stretch of Lamar.

The Lamar/Justin TOD document lists a maximum height of 60 ft for that area, though there may be allowances for bonuses.

In a previous incarnation of that same apartment project (originally called "Lamar Highline"), there was an article in the Statesman about cooperation between the neighbors directly behind the apartments and the developer. I can't seem to find it anymore but the tone of the article seemed to indicate a good level of positive engagement between the neighbors and developer. Given that the location is currently 100% paved and really ugly, I think the neighbors generally are ok with this project.

The project hasn't been approved yet, the filing was rejected then went inactive but is now actively under review again. The developer, Urban Genesis, has at least 3 projects going on in other parts of Austin, so this one might not have been a priority.

Good info! Thank you.

That's directly behind my house. I am so disappointed.

Does anyone have a render for the Koenig Honda apartment project??

The zoning in our TODs is desperate for an update. With all of the limitations we have on development the last they they look to do is enhance transit...

The Crestview Station Phase VI apartment was approved.

https://abc.austintexas.gov/web/perm...rtyRSN=5216512

5 stories, 226 units, no retail. The garage has 60+ bike parking spaces, which sounds unique for an otherwise ordinary apartment building. Couldn't find any images, but it's safe to assume it will look very similar to the Phase V building that's already been completed.

Too bad on no retail on the ground floor. Oh well.
