Demolition crews are out tearing down buildings at 2717 South Lamar where the old Austin Auto Machine Shop was located. The bright blue building seen in this photo is no longer there.
Here’s what’s going on today. Most buildings are now gone.
Here’s what’s planned for the site. 327 rental apartments and 30 townhomes with first floor retail. My buddy Kent Collins and Centro Development are the developers.
It’s great to watch these new projects come up out of the ground. If you haven’t driven South Lamar lately you are missing out on a lot of construction and development activity.
The downtown Apartment Projects seem to be moving to the South.
