The Moore Group has recently been retained to do land planning and prepare a Site Development Permit Application for a new office development off Research Boulevard in northwest Austin.
The project is in the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone, so a Water Pollution Abatement Plan has also been prepared and submitted to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). An innovative Water Quality Pond has been designed to take advantage of the terrain surrounding the proposed building.
This is an “infill” project in an area that is mostly already developed, so there were challenges regarding the means of handling the offsite drainage coming from the existing developed properties. We were able to design a combination of diversion structures and detention that meets all requirements.
We certainly are excited about the resurgence of the Austin Real Estate Market. Onward, into 2013!
