New Development: Austin Proper Hotel & Residences

The Trammel Crow Company is working with hotel developer The Kor Group to build a 243-room hotel and 100-unit condominium complex on Block 188 in the Green Waer development, south of the Austin Music Hall.
The downtown area is quickly changing its city scape, with old properties being redeveloped into towering skyscapers that, in turn, serve as a testament to the fast-paced progress enjoyed by Austin.

Proposed New Mexic Arte Museum in Downtown Austin

Mexic-Arte Museum, the official Mexican and Mexican American Museum of Texas, is developing plans for a new 7-story (two underground) building to replace the current structure located at the southeast corner of Congress Avenue and E. 5th Street.

The renowned architect of Soumaya Museum in Mexico City came up with the design for the new project. Architect Fernando Romero is committed to build a striking structure that would "contribute to the quality of life for citizens of Austin and for generations to come".

The iconic design of the building is meant to be "a magnet for learning about the past, participating in the present and fostering a collective pride for the future." To learn more about this project you can visit the official website of Mexic-Arte museum or drop them an email at


Redevelopment of Music Hall Set to Begin this September 2016

It was repored in 2015 that the Austin Music Hall will be demolished to make way for a 30-story office tower with ground floor retail area and onsite parking. After nearly a year of silence, Cielo Property Group broke the news that permits for site demolition were filed in March this year. The new construction at Third + Shoal is expected to begin this September 2016 with a projected completion date on September 2019.
