In a little over two years, an office furniture warehouse in South Austin will become the city’s first large-scale mixed-use market.
GroundFloor Development and Prescott Group joined forces to create the $120 million project, dubbed Saint Elmo Public Market. Plans call for an indoor-outdoor market, entertainment venue, offices, condominiums, and a boutique hotel.
The project will be situated on a 12-acre site near St. Elmo Road and South Congress Avenue. The development will feature 225,000 square feet of office space, a 40,000-square foot indoor-outdoor market, as well as a new home for the Saxon Pub. Construction is slated to begin in mid-2016 and completed in early 2018.
Andersson-Wise Architects is the lead architect, Chad Kimbell of KBGE Engineering is the civil engineer, and David Hocker of Hocker Design is the landscape engineer. Heather Wagner of Juice Consulting will oversee public relations and marketing, while Helms Workshop is the strategic brand design studio.
