25 years ago, community advocates, city planners and developers had a dream. The dream was to manage growth while reinvigorating the heart of Austin through smart planning. The city leaders and residents wanted a mixed-use community that kept tax revenue in the city and avoided the suburban sprawl that has plagued cities like Houston and Los Angeles. They wanted to help the people who live here to live well. The idea was to give the community places to live, shop, work, eat and spend quality time together.
This dream is being realized on East 12th Street. With the additional build for One Two East, Austin's ever-vibrant Eastside community will be adding a wide range of services while making sure the neighborhood stays a neighborhood.
It's an opportunity to add value and it's the right thing to do. All that is needed is an additional 35 feet.
We are committed to preserving Austin's history. To assist in this effort we'll solicit input from community organizations and Huston-Tillotson College to commission an artistic sculpture that commemorates African American history on the site. We plan on contributing $15,000 towards this endeavor and will showcase this notable piece, in a public plaza, at the intersection of 12th and Branch Streets.
