Mixed-use development proposed for second East Austin rail station

Four-acre complex proposed for Capital Metro stop on MLK

On the heels of general approval of a plan for developing the area around Saltillo Plaza, the Capital Metro rail station on East Fourth Street, a plan to build a mixed-used complex around the station on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard has surfaced.

Austin Business Journal reported Tuesday that Cityline Companies has purchased a four-acre plot at East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Alexander Avenue through an affiliate. Cityline recently submitted plans for a three-story complex containing 134,000 square feet of office space, 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and 22 townhomes for city site-plan review, according to ABJ.

The article also notes that Cityline Companies principal Frank Gordon has been based in Washington, D.C. but moved to Austin a couple of years ago.
