The primary purpose of Emerging Projects is to aid in regional planning efforts by documenting the various prominent development projects in and around Austin. The data includes information about the geographical location, the extent and the general use of various major development projects in and around Austin. With a few exceptions, only projects that are more than 10 acres and/ or will include 20 or more residential units have been included . Some of the exceptions include smaller sites in the urban core which will be more densely developed or larger sites with fewer units that cover large land areas. This report is a compilation of data from various sources like newspapers, websites, blogs, and the City of Austin’s permit recording database AMANDA. The information is a snapshot in time and might not depict the actual current status of the project, and is usually updated every quarter.
