Seaholm Power Plant Is for Sale, but the Seller Is a Mystery

Redeveloped property goes on market

The former Seaholm Power Plant and some of the adjacent properties are on the market, the Austin Business Journal reported today.

The property, originally owned by the city and recently redeveloped after a long design and proposal process, includes office, retail, and common space. The Journal obtained a marketing brochure for the sale and confirmed through CBRE Group, one of the brokerages involved, that property at three addresses is for sale: 800 W. Cesar Chavez St., 211 Walter Seaholm Drive and 222 West Ave.

ABJ's Jan Bucholz was not able to determine who is selling the plant, but she did obtain a statement from the city. According to that statement, writes Bucholz, the development may market the property, but the city must approve any sales transactions. A spokeswoman also said the city has not received official notice of an upcoming sale.

The news comes shortly after the city's announcement that it is seeking input on redevelopment of the Seaholm Intake Facility, across the street from the former power plant.
