You may have noticed some demolition at the old Paisano Motors site across from Buck Moore Feed and Supply. Soon ground-breaking will begin on another VMU structure that will cover the land to the south and to the west of Taco Cabana.
Big Red Dog Engineering and Consulting has filed a site plan with the City of Austin for review. The structure, when finished, will include 209 apartments, and well over 5,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor.
Big Red Dog has a track record of building large VMU projects in Austin, including Lamar Union on South Lamar (once and future home of Alamo Drafthouse Theater). No specific details or images for this North Loop and Lamar project have been posted on their blog yet (http://www.bigreddog.com/), but we’ll keep an eye on it for updates.
