Prime downtown Austin site to be transformed into 5-story office building

By Jan Buchholz – Senior Staff Writer, Austin Business Journal

Take the case of a small stand-alone office building at 1108 Nueces St. in downtown Austin.

The 2,725-square-foot building, circa 1957, on about one-fourth of an acre will be torn down to make way for a 22,000-square-foot, five-story office building.

The entitlements were secured June 8 in an ordinance signed by Mayor Steve Adler. It doesn't appear there are any Capitol view corridor issues that would hinder the 60-foot maximum height.

Site plan for 1108 Nueces - this is a 5-story office building. It's 2 floors of office and 3 floors of parking.

Elevations show it to be 64 feet 10 inches on the east elevation.

Here's the site - midblock on the west side of Nueces Street between 11th & 12th Streets.

Generic pooooo with no street interaction or appeal. This is not what that area needs.
It truly is the great frontier for mixed use neighborhood vibe to happen.

I know. That is hilariously bad. I wonder if cars will actually outnumber people in that building.

Looks like part facing the street has two spaces - the lobby for the building and then a space called "lease" - maybe retail space?

I was thinking the same thing. It's not huge, but enough for a small coffee shop or cafe.

I mean, let's be real, how else will people get to work at the 2 office floors?
