Another McKalla Place proposal submitted to Austin and no, it's not for a MLS soccer stadium
The proposed “livable, walkable transit-oriented community” uses innovative structure that will generate nearly $200 million for affordable housing, according to the organizations that submitted the proposal.
AUSTIN — An alternative proposal for the land at McKalla Place was submitted to the City of Austin on Saturday.
“We love soccer, we think it’s a great sport, but we felt that a new type of proposal for a new city center would benefit more Austinites,” said Scott Ginder, founder of Forge Craft Architecture + Design.
The proposal recommends a modern, mixed-use development that would serve as a model for community-based urban development, officials said. This comes after Precourt Sports Ventures has already made its proposal to the city to use the land for a Major League Soccer stadium, which has been a polarizing topic among Austinites.
