Shoal Creek Walk Moves Through Planning Commission

Rendering of Shoal Creek Walk

Schlosser Development’s Shoal Creek Walk concept, to be located where a large surface level parking lot currently exists, has agreed to include an affordable housing component (in addition to $2.3MM in green-scaping concessions) in order to receive the Planning Commission’s recommendation for a height variance to 350 ft.  The building is intended primarily as an office tower, but has included 90 residential units at the top.  Schlosser may pay a $3 per foot (for all area greater than 687,000 ft) fee in lieu of actually building the affordable dwellings.

  1. And I suppose if they had instead decided to build a squat two-story drive-through bank with a huge surface parking lot and no green-scaping, they wouldn’t have had to concede anything. Such is what is fundamentally flawed about the density bonus component of the Downtown Austin Plan.

  2. This is an interesting building, I think it will be the only office/condo tower in Austin. I wonder who the anchor tenant will be.

    I also wonder what the price range of the units will be and what amenities they will offer. They aren’t going to get the same synergy of use that a hotel/condo building gets, so it will be interesting to see how the separate out the condo portion from the office portion.
