The developer for the proposed high-intensity, mixed-use redevelopment of IBM’s Broadmoor Campus in North Austin has released an initial rendering of the project.
Community Impact Newspaper received the rendering from Michelle Gonzalez at Hahn Public Communications, a representative for project developer Brandywine Realty LLC.
The proposed large-scale redevelopment of the 66-acre lot at 11501 Burnet Road in North Austin—just east of The Domain—includes at least 2,000 housing units, building heights of 360 feet and a new Capital Metro Rail Station.
The project received initial support from Austin City Council on April 12, which gave preliminary approval of a zoning change necessary to the project. Final approval of the zoning change is expected sometime in May.
The project also received full support from the nearby Gracywoods Neighborhood Association. The project represents a major addition to the North Burnet-Gateway Neighborhood Plan. City officials have touted the plan as the city’s future “second downtown.”
Back in January, a representative from Brandywine Realty said if Amazon chose Austin to host its second headquarters, the Broadmoor Campus area could be front-runner location.
