Several departments in the city of Austin could relocate to a new property near Austin Community College’s Highland campus near Interstate 35 and U.S. 183. The departments of development services, human resources, planning and zoning, public works and watershed protection are bursting out of their current location at One Texas Center, a five-acre, city-owned property on Barton Springs Road.
Greg Canally, with the city finance department, proposed moving some departments at One Texas Center, as well as other departments in other leased buildings into the yet-to-be-built space. Developer RedLeaf Properties owns the property, and already has designs. If the agreement goes through, the building could be completed in approximately two years. The Austin City Council voted to spend $650,000 in earnest money as a security deposit.
