Zoning change for 4302 South Congress. This is for the vacant lot on the west side of Congress two lots south of the Salvation Army store.

No idea if this is new or not, but it's in Community Impact, so here you go.

Massing of new apartments at South Congress and Mockingbird:

That's a mile and a half from me. Those lots have been low use for a long time. There were a couple of a car lots there before they were bulldozed a year or so ago.

Super-South Congress is such a wild place . . . lots of nodes of stuff, but also lots of open space. If I was an apartment builder/speculator, I'd for sure focus on that corridor.

Congress between St. Elmo and William Cannon is gonna pop off in the next 15 years. The area has been one of the longest to stay under-developed in Austin for reasons that make some sense.

Lots of scrap yards and industrial sites to the North, and once you start getting near Dove Springs/William Cannon area it historically had crime issues.

But that's obviously going to change. Its one of the weird final hold-outs of near-downtown that just hasn't redeveloped despite being surrounded by higher-end development on 3 sides and I35 on the 4th.

It's weird because those apartments went in over at Penn Field like 15 years ago and then basically nothing else at all on Congress South of Oltorf. I guess Crux is pretty nice and there are a few other things. If the St. Elmos market and accompanying condos happen it could be a big catalyst for the area to become a destination.

Saint Elmo's is a thing. They have the sign up and everything, but still no opening date. This area is about to grow like crazy.

There is already a lot of apartment construction on Congress near it.

You can fill out a survey for the Bergstrem Spur trail that'll run from the railroad to the airport in South Austin.

Ive heard some mixed stuff about the developer being all hat and no cattle but we'll see. I think his plan is to open the st. elmos market, have it become a massive draw and then have all the undeveloped land around it that he owns become super valuable to secure financing or flip it.

It's not a terrible plan and will likely work out great as Austin is short on these sorts of food hall concepts which are basically proven money-makers all over Europe and where they do exist in the US.

(I know we've got one downtown, but that is a bit more high-end mall food court vibe)
