I think the design is only for those parts set aside as parks. The overall plan includes areas for towers and businesses.

There's a short article in the recent Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center magazine about Waller. It says that they will be starting on the Lattice and Palm Park areas soon. Doesn't get into any details but it's at least something as far as updates.

Real estate magnate Nate Paul, founder and CEO of World Class Capital Group LLC, and tech investor Brian Sheth, co-founder and president of Vista Equity Partners LLC, made the donation, the Austin American-Statesman reports. And the two men are calling on others to step up and give.
