PROJECT DETAILS: The 302-unit apartment structure is made of reinforced concrete with post tension slabs, and it sits atop 525 parking spaces in four levels of sub-surface parking. This project received a LEED Silver status and some of the sustainability features built into the project include a cistern for rainwater collection at the bottom of the parking structure and a water biofiltration system designed by TES. TES coordinated with City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department for a recreation easement for a hike & bike trail. TES also coordinated with the Watershed Protection Department for a drainage culvert. TES designed an off-site water line with a 1/2 mile length and dealt with the abandonment of an existing waste water structure.
