On June 13, the state Department of Transportation, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the City of Austin announced a bid for the construction of a $25-million, 200,000-square-foot, five-story, three-story-and-a-half-acre, mixed-use development for a former Baker Construction site at 2600 West Main Street.
The project, which was developed by a consortium led by Texas-based developer Austin-based RMI Development, will include a large public plaza and pedestrian-oriented development, including a new park that will connect with the existing Baker Street pedestrian plaza and existing pedestrian amenities.
This site is approximately 20 minutes west of downtown Austin and will provide approximately 40 parking spaces and an outdoor plaza.
The City of San Antonio is also developing the project for the City and the State.
The new Baker Construction project is located in the City’s Westside, adjacent to the existing, privately owned Baker Street and existing, publicly owned Baker Plaza.
The Baker Construction contract will be awarded to RMI on June 21, 2019.
The winning bid will be evaluated by the Department of Administration for approval and construction will begin in the first quarter of 2020.
A formal groundbreaking will be held in October 2020.
Construction on the Baker Construction Site will be under a state permit and subject to a construction permit process, subject to approval by the City Council.
The Department of Construction and Inspections will be responsible for the enforcement of the project permit and for the issuance of a building permit for the project.
Construction of the Baker construction project will be overseen by the Division of Public and Environmental Engineering.
A construction permit will be required for any public or private use of this project site.
The cost of the construction project is estimated at $15 million, and the full cost of construction will be determined by the city and the state.
In addition to Baker Construction, RMI is developing a mixed-used, public-private redevelopment of a former T-Mobile facility located at 5500 West Main St., in the Austin-area.
The site is located approximately 20 miles west of the existing T-mobile site and is currently operated by a public agency.
The development is being financed with private funds and is being overseen by a private entity.
The design and engineering of this mixed- use, mixed uses project is being done by RMI’s Austin-Austin and New Braunfels-New Braunfells divisions.
The total cost of this design and development will be approximately $18 million.
The developer has completed a site assessment report and will present its proposal to the City at the City-Public-Private Development Commission’s June 21 public meeting.
For more information on Baker Construction or for more information about the Baker redevelopment, contact the city’s Department of Planning and Development at 713-731-5550.
