Springdale Green, a new office campus comprising two six-story office buildings totaling 872,500 rentable sf, has been granted approval in East Austin.

The Gensler-designed project will include extensive outdoor amenities and state-of-the-art infrastructure to create a work setting focused on sustainability and wellness. The campus offers a new way of working with multiple outdoor areas, an 18,000-sf flex/conference space with a dedicated outdoor patio, and a 23,000-sf fitness and wellness center that is exclusive to campus employees. An onsite parking garage will support multiple modes of transportation including indoor storage for 308 bikes and 46 electric vehicle charging stations, with the ability to expand to a total of 345 charging stations.

The office buildings will combine to feature 36,000 sf of signature terraces that create a garden-like extension of the interior. The fitness center will offer classes and personal training such as yoga, bootcamp, basketball, and volleyball. It will also directly connect to outdoor amenities such as nearly a mile of boardwalk, a jogging loop, and nature trails.

A little of two-thirds of the 30-acre campus will be preserved and restored with native meadows, woodland and plantings, and an urban creek tributary. A 600,000-gallon underground cistern will capture and store rainwater, as well as harvest air conditioning condensate that will then be used to irrigate the landscape. The site’s stormwater will be treated and cleaned using rain gardens and a bio-retention basin that will help prevent downstream flooding.

The project is targeting LEED Gold and Austin Energy Green Building 3-Star.
