In Austin, Texas, the seven-building East Riverside Gateway mixed-use development will provide a mixed-use community next to the city’s planned Blue Line light rail, which will connect the Austin Bergstrom International Airport with downtown Austin.

Planned and designed by Steinberg Hart, the development will include over 2 million sf of office, retail, and residential space, as well as amenities, such as a large park, that are intended to draw tech workers and young families. Currently home to a storage facility and a former mobile home park, the 22.5-acre triangular site is located at the terminus of the Riverside corridor. 

The three office buildings will be placed around a central plaza. The four multifamily buildings will provide 1,100 residential units at a range of prices, from high-end condos to larger residences, in addition to more compact, attainable units and affordable housing. All seven buildings will be connected through a ground-floor retail corridor. The project also will have 4,000 parking spaces. 

The master plan for the mixed-use development emphasizes the pedestrian experience, creating a walkable neighborhood and retaining the site’s numerous trees. The 3.5-acre urban park, which straddles the new development and its existing neighborhood, includes an area dedicated to the restoration of the area’s native Blackland Prairie habitat. Aiming to draw in pedestrians, the park’s programming will seek to inspire outdoor activities with a trailhead, bike path, playground, dog runs, and an outdoor pavilion area that can house events and performances. 

The buildings will feature solar shading to minimize heat gain, double-height porches, and balconies. And landscaping at the podium level and throughout the neighborhood should provide a cooling reprieve from the Texas heat.

East Riverside Gateway is currently in the entitlement phase.
