Bremond – A New Downtown Apartment Building Is Proposed

Bremond – A New Downtown Apartment Building Is Proposed

Bremond site

A new site plan has been submitted to the city by developers Mike McGinnis and Rick Hardin for a new 70 unit downtown Austin apartment building.  Called the “Bremond,” the name is clear a nod to its unique proximity to the Bremond Block Historic District.  The 0.41 acre site, if built, would use the address 807 Nueces St.  The written application calls for 12 stories, four to be used for parking.  There is no retail component, which is not surprising given the area.

The site is currently an asphalt parking lot.

UPDATE 12-6-2010:

Check out the rendering.  Note, none of the buildings along 8th will be razed.  The development will not need any variances or public hearings.

    I’m liking this

  2. I’m all about replacing surface parking, but here’s hoping that cute house on the corner (http://goo.gl/maps/q5Nr) doesn’t get torn down for it.

  3. Boo the no retail portion, nice on the rest.
