Austin council delays move of historic home for UT student high-rise

Quote:
The Austin City Council pumped the brakes Thursday on a plan to move a historic home in the West Campus neighborhood to make way for high-rise student housing.

The Dabney-Horne house, which was zoned historic in 1992, is protected by a restrictive covenant preventing its owner from moving it from its location at 507 W. 23rd St. next to the University Co-op parking garage — something developers have wanted to do for more than 25 years because of its proximity to the University of Texas campus.

Johnson Trube & Associates plans to build a 175-foot tower on an adjacent site with nearly 700 rooms for students to rent. It is working with the owner of the Dabney-Horne site to see if the historic home can be moved to provide more space for the residential tower.

But the council delayed the vote until next week to get clearer answers about its legal options with the restrictive covenant.

Updated rendering, and the press has picked it up, too.

This says 22 floors, but it's 18 floors over 4 underground parking levels.

Student housing project planned for historic site near UT
Apr 14, 2016, 2:10pm CDT

A glitzy new student housing project will be constructed at West 23rd and Nueces streets in the West Campus area near the University of Texas.

Johnson Trube & Associates is building Skyloft, a luxury 22-story tower on the site of the historic Dabney-Horne house — home to one of UT’s first professors, Robert Dabney.

The project is scheduled to break ground in August and be completed before the fall 2018 semester. A percentage of units will be earmarked as affordable for students who qualify.
