Broadmoor/IBM Campus Redevelopment

Here's our catchall Broadmoor thread, since the Domain/Northside thread is so stuffed to the gills.

+++++++++++

Broadmoor comes up before the Planning Commission on March 9.

Subdivision approvals are statutory, in other words, they have to go to PC, but approvals are typically profroma and pass on consent. There has to be a glaring technical error for them not to be approved, by statute. If they meet the standards, they must be approved. However, there is a shot clock involved, so the first time they appear at PC, they are usually listed as Statutory Disapproval. This gives staff time to review them carefully within the statutory time limit. When they reappear at PC after the review, they are typically listed as Approval Recommended, and they pass on consent.

In this case, the submission date was June 2019, and staff is recommending approval.

We used to have a different thread for Broadmoor and it was merged with the Domain thread after a community vote. My vote remains that I would rather keep Broadmoor updates in the Domain thread and change the name of that thread to reflect it.

It would be quite difficult to separate the posts of Doman and Broadmoor from the other thread. That's really the reason it hasn't happened. To do it, we'd pretty much have to go through post by post moving out any post that pertains to Broadmoor to a Broadmoor thread and then any replies to those. It's not that the request has been ignored, it's just very tedious and time consuming.

To be honest, I don't want to move all the old Broadmoor posts over, but do think we need to keep sorting the larger projects (Domain, McKalla, etc) for a touch of clarity. And as Broadmoor really gets moving, I expect we'll start to see the pic count take off as well.

Let's just rename that thread North Austin, make a brand new Domain thread, and start it off linking to the North Austin thread saying historical Domain posts can be found there.

After being expired and without activity for months, the Block L site plan has come back to life. There are multiple new attachments with drawings dated 04/01. The height of the two 300'+ office towers remains as originally planned.

I vaguely remember that but don't recall what happened there. All I know is I haven't heard anyone refer to it as "Uptown ATX" in a long time.

Maybe we'll finally start seeing some new construction soon. Finish out permits were filed for the 12-story Block A apartment building today. The site plan was approved a while back. The Block A 14-story office building didn't seem to get approved as part of the approved Block A site plan. But a plan review for the office building was included with the finish out permits filed today.
