Anyone know what's going up by the Travis County tax buildings on N. Lamar?

Lamar Station

This is located in the same portfolio as Crestview Highline. Despite looking nearly identical to the black and white modern farmhouses that are popping up all over Crestview and Brentwood, this is actually going to be fronting Lamar Blvd at Banyon St. The boxing gym that will be displaced by Crestview Highline is slated to go here.

It's like they took one of their on-the-shelf house designs and stuck some signage on it. I'm not complaining about the look but its a really odd choice (and a lost opportunity) for that location. What I will complain about however is that when this is built, there will be two places called Lamar Station, neither of which is deserving of a name like that.

Thanks for pointing out where these'll be. Nice to see some more infill along Lamar in that area. At this point I'm waiting for it to jump the street and start rehabbing the east side of Lamar, too.

The approved site plan for this is up:

99 units plus ground floor retail. Elevations on pgs 28-29.

10 years into the Justin Lane TOD regulating plan, only the second project to actually be mixed use as far as I can tell. The first, Midtown Commons, hardly counts because the commercial/retail part is so small scale and they're in separate buildings from the multi family. I'll grant that there is a small number of live/work units in the original Midtown Commons.

Just noticed this though it might be old

TRG N Lamar (5 story mixed use at Lamar and Koenig) site plan approved and released:

Also of some note, the site plan for Lamar Station (1 story retail) was approved and released as well. This is only notable b/c it's from the same developer as Crestview Highline (5 story mixed use) and the boxing gym that currently occupies the Highline space is supposed to go to Lamar Station. Maybe that will determine how they time construction.

The other project of note on lamar is the Lamar at North Loop VMU. No idea why it's taking so long but they seem to be crawling towards eventual approval.

This must be the Whale, yes? The one where the curve at Koenig hits Lamar, on the southeast corner?
