Couple of interesting adaptive reuse projects approved today. I'm particularly interested to see how the first one goes. If it succeeds, it could be a good model for other conversions of parking garages into more active uses.

EDIT: sorry for double post on the first one - should have refreshed first! The Sears adaptive reuse is also interesting.
Tweet: Plan Commission approves 3115 Properties' plan to redo a parking garage at 3115 N. Broadway in Lake View as 72 residential units with ground-floor retail space. The project will add two stories to the building and retain 60 parking spaces. Seven units will be affordable.
Plan Commission OKs a 161-unit adaptive reuse plan for the former Sears store at North and Harlem in Austin. The $84 million Seritage SRC Finance project includes four affordable units and a $627,000 AHOF payment. Ground-floor grocer and health club will support 200+ jobs.

Tweet: Plan Commission also approves Seritage SRC Finance's 152-unit plan for 7141 W. Wabansia Ave., adjacent to the former Sears store in Austin. The four-building rental project will include four affordable units, a $574,000 AHOF payment and parking for 177 cars.
