Putting Teeth in Austin’s South Central Waterfront Redevelopment Plan

Towers, Adolfo Pesquera, May 11, 2018.
“CMG Landscape Architecture will design the permanent plaza, envisioned to be a shady green oasis with rain gardens. Commissioner Evan Taniguchi found much promise in the Regulating Plan and said if it’s adopted the city could learn a lot about density. He compared the South Central Waterfront to the Mission Bay district in San Francisco as it was 20 years ago. He was able to observe the planning stages for its redevelopment. “I thought it went amazingly fast. Before I knew it, I was out there and I saw the thing built. I’m hoping something like that can happen here, just to show people what it’s like to live in a dense urban core that really works well,” Taniguchi said.”
