The GreenWater development is part of the Seaholm District in Downtown Austin. Formerly the Thomas C. Green Water Treatment Plant, the site is bounded by Shoal Creek to the west, the 2nd Street alley to the north, San Antonio Street to the east, and Cesar Chavez to the south. Nueces Street and 2nd Street are being extended through the site as part of the project. Through a competitive bidding process, the City of Austin selected the Trammell Crow Company as the Master Developer and entered into a Master Development Agreement for the sale and redevelopment of the former water treatment plant. Trammell Crow and partners will develop 1.7 million square feet of mixed-uses including residential, office, hotel and retail. The ground-floor retail will provide opportunities for local business, and the project will make significant contributions to sustainability, open space, affordability, public art and music. The development team is taking down the property in phases under the terms of the Master Development Agreement starting in January 2014, with Block 1. The Economic Development Department’s Redevelopment Division leads this project on behalf of the city.
