Crestview Station

Recommended Posts

Crestview Station is a mixed-use project being formed on a 73 acre tract of land that was occupied by Huntsman Corp. (chemical manufacturer). The southern end of the site will house a stop on the Downtown/Northwest Commuter Rail Line. This $100M project will be one of the largest TOD's in Austin so far.

Plans for Crestview Station call for a high-density, mixed-use project that will include:

-150,000 square feet of retail and office space.

-Roughly 500 single-family lots.

-Up to 600 multifamily units.

-Upgrades to existing ball fields.

-Environmental cleanup with a price tag exceeding $3 million.

It will take 12 - 18 months for environmental clean-up of the site and about 5 years for it to be completely built out.

Trammell Crow and Stratus properties have officially closed the deal on their purchase of the former Huntsman Chemical site in North Austin. Environmental remediation costing $3 million will begin right away and last 12-18 months, followed by construction of "Crestview Station," a $100 million development featuring 1,100 homes and 150,000 square feet of commercial development centered around the Capital Metro rail station planned just off the intersection of Airport and Lamar.

Work is progressing on Crestview Station, all of the buildings on the former Huntsman Chemical site have been demolished and environmental cleanup is underway. Construction on Crestview Station is expected to begin in April 2007.

Dallas-based Trammell Crow Company and Austin's Stratus Properties took the bait first, buying the 73-acre site of the former Huntsman Chemical research facility adjacent to the planned Airport and Lamar stop of MetroRail (as the transit agency has styled the commuter train). Consistent with the TOD's intent, the "Crestview Station" project will have about 64,000 square feet of retail and office space, integrated with about 800 apartments and condominiums nearest the train platform and about 400 single-family homes

I live on Morrow. I hope it doesn't create too much traffic.

But on the plus side, I will have two ways to get down town. Route 5 on the cap metro and then with this station(although the station happens to be at the farthest location on the lot from me.
