Downtown Development Digest: Seaholm Residences

Downtown Development Digest
Introducing The Seaholm Neighborhood: New Center for Downtown Living  

On the north shore of Lady Bird Lake sits one of Austin’s most iconic structures, the Seaholm Power Plant. In the early 1950’s when this art-deco structure was originally constructed, the city of Austin was a much different place. Throughout the decades this quiet capital city of 132,000 people has transformed into a bustling metropolis of nearly two million. Yet, through the midst of all the development and change, this stoic structure has remained relatively untouched by Austin’s progression. The time has finally come to make use of this historic beauty. The past is re-envisioned to preserve a key piece of Austin’s beloved culture and history

Why: Sprechen Sie German? Neither do the folks at Bangers, but that won’t stop them from going all out for Oktoberfest 2013. The only German you need under your belt is “beer,” “brats,” and “more beer, bitte!” (An occasional “danke” to the fellow filling your stein probably wouldn’t hurt either!)

Austin Bike Share Program

Austin Bike Share

Attention all urban core dwellers, your lives are about to have an amazing transformation! This year the bike share program is coming to Austin. This means the city is providing a new, efficient and highly time effective way of commuting within downtown Austin.

Austin’s urban core is a dense community spanning approximately 3 miles by 3 miles... a completely bikable range. Rather than having to sit in traffic for 40 minutes to commute to a meeting that is just a mile away, plus spend another 20 minutes trying to find parking, now you can jump on one of these new urban bikes and spend a fraction of the time.

Here’s how it works- pick up a bike in one location, ride to your destination,

Magic and mayhem will spark up the night when the lights go up and the entertainment begins. We’re beginning to wonder if this event wasn’t the inspiration behind Lorde’s song “Royals”?

Downtown Development Digest 9/5/13
Boardwalk Trail at Lady Bird Lake

The Ann and Roy Butler Trail around Lady Bird Lake has been in existence since the 1970s and remains one of the most famous of the many downtown attractions that make Austin so unique and desirable. Nationally known and recognized, our beloved 10-mile trail can be said to be perfect in every aspect, except one — a pesky little 1.2-mile gap along Riverside Drive and I-35. Austinites currently have no choice but to detour onto a narrow sidewalk and cross under I-35, braving six lanes of access roads to reach the other side of the trail! Who knew walking/running could be such a dangerous sport?! Fortunately, we have a solution.  The Parks and Recreation Department, the Public
