Leave no stone unturned. Check out how Austin Energy wants to use a sliver of downtown land, next to Gables Park Tower, for a new chilling station.
The site dimensions make the site pretty much unusable for intense development, so it is great to see a municipal use. AE has engaged Cotera Reed to handle the design. The project is being presented to the City of Austin Design Commission on the 25th.
Many downtown buildings are connected to the the City’s “chilled water loop”. One of the existing chilling stations is at 5th & Sabine (that blue tile “box” connected to the ACVB parking garage).
