The Redevelopment Division implements Council policy that enlivens commercial districts, strengthens the local economy and promotes community identity through place-making in the public realm.  Projects such as Seaholm District, 2nd Street District, MUELLER Redevelopment, Colony Park, and Souly Austin embody this mission.

Leveraging socially beneficial development through wise public investment results in community benefits: provision of affordable housing, space for local businesses, accessible employment opportunities and new tax revenue to sustain Austin’s vibrancy.
