[CALL TO ORDER AND ROLL CALL]

[00:00:08]

CHEESE, UH, AS IN REMEMBER ALL THIS AND THAT TO ME, I DON'T HAVE I'D WANT HIM TO IS DISCUSSING IN THAT CRASH IF I MADE SURE IT NEEDED TO DO CITIZENS COMMUNICATION, EXCUSE ME, PUBLIC INFORMATION.

I THINK BUDDY, THAT WANTS TO SPEAK, UH, I HAVE

[1.a. Discussion and possible action to evaluate and make recommendations regarding whether the Goodnight Ranch Fire/EMS, located 9400 Capitol View Dr., complies with the City Design and Sustainability Standards, for the City of Austin. Applicant(s): Burton Jones, Westley Burger]

A ONE 800 JUMPER.

WE HAVE SOMEBODY READY TO SPEAK BEFORE WE CAN READ THE ITEM INTO THE RECORD, INTO THE RECORD, JUST A NEGATIVITY, ALL THE WORDS ON FASHION AND POSSIBLE ACTION TO EVALUATE AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING WHETHER THE GOOD MANAGER MATCH VIA AN ADDRESS LOCATED AT 9,400 CAPITOL VIEW.

DRIVE APPLIES WITH THE DESIGN WITH THE CITY DESIGN AND SUSTAINABILITY STATUS AT THE CITY OF AUSTIN.

UH, JOHNS.

AND WENSLEYDALE OVER HERE.

IT'S WHERE DO WE GO? THAT'S GREAT.

SLIDES.

I WON'T ASK YOU TO SPEAK UP.

THANKS FOR THE MICROPHONE.

OKAY.

AND WE DO A REAL QUICK THUMB.

BURKE JONES IS ON THE LINE.

YOU SAID CITY OF AUSTIN, UH, PROJECT MANAGEMENT.

UM, UH, WE'VE GOT, UH, TWO FIRE REPRESENTATIVES WITH SIMON PRESSLEY.

THE QUESTION AND ANSWER MYSELF.

I'M CHRIS ROOT BUSH WITH PTL WITH DON'T WORKER.

WHAT'S THE BURGER.

UM, AND LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU'RE WITH YOU.

OKAY.

UM, WHAT WE'RE SHOWING TONIGHT IS HAVE A GOOD NIGHT BRANCH FIRE STATION CONTEXT, CAUSE THE FOURTH FIRE STATION OF A BUCKET OF FIVE DESIGN-BUILD FIRE STATIONS, UH, BEING DONE FOR, UH, FIRE AND EMS. THE THREE ON THE SCREEN, THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT SHOWS.

IT'S NOT COMMISSION IN THE PAST.

I JUST WROTE THE FIRST THREE.

UH, BOTTOM LEFT WAS DEL VALLEY, UH, DONE TWO SUMMERS AGO, UH, OPEN TWO SUMMERS AGO, AND THEN TRAVIS COUNTY COUNTRY, OUR STATIONS OPENED LAST SUMMER AND THEN DAVENPORT RANCH, WHICH IS BOTTOM RIGHT, IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION NOW.

AND SO WE'LL REPRESENT YOU.

THIS IS THE FOUR, WHICH IS, UH, CALLED GOODNIGHT RANCH.

AND I'M GOING TO RENUMBER WESLEY TO WALK THROUGH THE SITE.

WE DO HAVE A LANDSCAPE PORTION AND THE DEAL, SOME, UH, OUR LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS TO AUSTIN ENERGY COULD HIT DOORS AND FIN ROUTE.

SO I'LL BE WATCHING THAT DOOR FOR HER TO COME.

I TEXTED HER HOW TO COME IN THAT DOOR.

SO WAS HE ABLE TO DO DESIGN A LITTLE LANDSCAPE, TALK OF THE SUSTAINABLE? ALL RIGHT.

SO I'M SURE EVERYONE'S PROBABLY FAMILIAR WITH THE GOODNIGHT RANCH DEVELOPMENT, UH, BUT IT'S IN SOUTHEAST AUSTIN OR SEE THAT LITTLE RIGHT AT THE DOT SCREEN, 800 ACRE DEVELOPMENT I NEEDED DEVELOPMENT.

UM, THE PROGRAM FOR THIS FIRE STATION IS SIMILAR TO THE PROGRAM FOR THE OTHER THREE THAT ALREADY DIED, UM, SPELLING 15,000 SQUARE FEET, LOTS OF TRAININGS THERE, OR PULL THROUGH APPARATUS BASED HAVE STAFF PARKING, UM, THE SOLUTION FOR THIS TWO-STORY SOLUTION PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF SITE CONDITIONS AND PRODUCING THEIR RESPONSE CLASSROOM STATION.

UH, THE REST OF THE PROGRAM IS A FREE STAY ROOM, KITCHEN, GYM GEAR, STORAGE IN DORMS. I SLIDE, UM, GOING RIGHT THERE.

WE SEE THE MASTER PLAN FOR GOOD BANK BRANCH IN OUR SITE IS DOWN ON THE, ON THE MIDDLE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SPRAIN.

UM, WE'RE ACTUALLY RIGHT ON THE CORE GROUPS, AUSTIN CITY LIMITS.

UH, YOU CAN SEE THERE THAT'S, THAT'S THE GRADING THAT'S PROPOSED BY THE DEVELOPERS.

SO THAT'S ALL SLOPING INTO THE LEFT, WHICH IS GONNA TAKE ALL THE SURFACE WATER TO A POND THAT SMALL SIDE THERE, UM, IN THE ELEMENT.

[00:05:01]

UM, SO OTHER ITEMS HAVE NOTICED THERE'S NO PUBLIC TRANSPORT WITHIN A QUARTER MILE, WHICH THEN AFFECTS OUR LEAD RATINGS, UM, IN OUR, WITH, WITH THE CITY ELEMENTS.

UH, PART OF THE REASON WE'RE HERE TO BE PERMITTING THROUGH, STAY BOSTON AND COMPLY WITH SUCH CATEGORY.

UM, A DEVELOPER IS DOING THE ROUGH GRADING AS YOU SEE, AND I DON'T UTILITIES INSECT.

EXCELLENT.

IT'S JUST A IMAGE OF WHAT THE CYBER, MAYBE SIX MONTHS AGO, WE'D DO A LITTLE BIT GRAFTED.

THEY'RE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF PAIRING ALL THAT LAND, INSTALLING THOSE TWO ROADS, SEE CAPITOL VIEW VIGOR, WHICH IS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SITE REALLY EXTENDS OUT TO ABOUT, UH, MAYBE A COUPLE OF HUNDRED YARDS FROM SLAUGHTER.

AND THIS DEVELOPMENT WILL BE TO EXTEND CAPITAL UP TO SLAUGHTER, AND THEY ARE SILVER ON THE CORNER OF A NEW ROAD, WHICH DOESN'T EXIST YET AND ALL STOCK MEN AND COWS EAT, WHICH DOES EXIST, BUT IT DOESN'T TOUCH STAFFING.

THAT'S FINE.

IT'S JUST THE WORK GOING ON TODAY.

SEE THAT THE SPECI CAPITOL VIEW OF THIS LONGER THEY'RE WORKING ON SLIDE AND NEXT TO THAT, UM, THE DISTANCE, THEIR STOCK WILL RUN PARALLEL TO THAT SLOT.

EXCELLENT.

SO AS YOU SAW EARLIER, IF THAT IMAGE IS A THREE-STAGE, WE'VE ALREADY COMPLETED IT EACH STAGE, IT HAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT AESTHETIC AND WE TRY TO TIE THEM INTO THE NEIGHBORHOODS COMMUNITIES THAT THEY'RE PART OF HERE.

PETE VISITED THE SITE.

I NOTICED, UM, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT STANDS OUT IS THE STUDENTS THAT THEY'RE BUILDING ON THE SITE.

AND WHILE THESE ARE PRETTY, UM, YOU KNOW, TYPICAL, UH, ASKED DEVELOPMENT OF HOUSING, UM, WE THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING THAT THEY USE THESE SURFACES BLIND COLOR TO JUST CREATE A MODEL THAT WOULD BE CATHARTIC, UM, RIGHT IN COLORFUL POS GREAT BACKGROUND.

SO WE TOOK A LITTLE BIT OF INSPIRATION FOR THAT SPACE SETTING THE STAGE, NEXT SLIDE.

SO IF YOU CAN SEE WE'RE ON A CORNER SITE, UM, SO THIS DIAGRAM JUST KIND OF SHOWS HOW WE WENT ABOUT WITH THE MASSEY ON THE STATION, THE FIREFIGHTERS, EMS WORKERS, A LOT OF PULL THROUGH STATION, UM, JUST AIDS IN RESPONSE TYPES.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TWO BAYS.

UM, THOSE ARE THE TWO MATTER FOUR BAYS.

THOSE ARE THE TWO MASSES ON TOP.

THE MIDDLE MASS IS OFFSET TO THE RIGHT SLIGHTLY BECAUSE WE HAVE A POLICE STATION TO THE LEFT.

SO THAT JUST AIDS IN, UM, THE FUEL STATION, NOT CONFLICTING ACCESS INTO THOSE MIDDLE BASED THEN BE A TWO-STORY STATION.

IS THAT MASK ON THE SOUTH SIDE, THEN DIAGRAM ON THE RIGHT AND JUST SHOWING HOW WE TAPERED THE FACADES TOWARDS THE PUBLIC STREETS, UM, JUST TO GET TO THE BUILDING A LITTLE MORE FRIENDLY PRESENCE TO THE PUBLIC, UH, BASED IN PUBLIC SLIDE.

ALRIGHT, SO THIS IS OUR SITE PLAN.

YOU CAN SEE HERE.

UM, WE HAVE, EXCUSE ME, MASSES THAT ARE WRAPPED AROUND A SPACE AND THE STATE SHOULD BE FINE TO, UM, A LOT OF LANDSCAPE, A NICE CHUNK OF OPEN SPACE ON A SITE WITH CREATIVE AND CONVERT AND THE TRAINING AREAS FOR FIRE EMS ADS FOR RECREATIONAL AREAS FOR THEM.

UM, WE HAVE SECURE PARKING AND THERE ON THE LEFT SIDE AND DOWN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER, WE HAVE ONE, UM, ACCESSIBLE PARALLEL PARKING SPOT BECAUSE THERE'S THE REST OF THE STREETS WILL HAVE PARALLEL PARKING ALL ALONG THEN.

SO THERE'LL BE PLENTY OF OTHER SPOTS FOR ONE DEDICATED, ACCESSIBLE SPOT.

THAT WAS WHAT WE TOUCHING ON THE LANDSCAPING DESIGN POPUP.

THEY COULD, THAT'S FINE.

RIGHT? THE FLOOR PLAN, LIKE I SAID BEFORE, A SIMILAR PROGRAM PROVIDING FOR THE CLEAR STATIONS, THE PROMPT THAT YOU PROCEEDED QUIETER IN EMS IS THE VARIETY CAN BE IN THE LIVING SPACE, FIREFIGHTERS AND EMS RESPONDERS.

SO WE HAVE A BIG KITCHEN AND DATA ROOM AND DINING ROOM THERE ON THE BOTTOM SIDE, WHICH BLEEDS OUT INTO A PATIO.

IT'S KIND OF A ISSUE TO THAT GROUP.

UM, EXTERIOR GRID GM ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE, THE TRADING ROOM BE ABLE TO DETACH AND STARE.

UM, IT'S, UH, TRAVIS COUNTRY PUBLISHES THE SECOND, THE STATION THAT LIGHTS THE FIRE AND EMS CAN TRAIN FOR LADDERS.

UH, AND THEN SHE CAN SEE THEM FOR PULL THROUGHOUT AROUND.

I WAS AMAZED.

THESE ARE DESIGNED IN A WAY THAT, UM, URGENCY VEHICLES RESPOND ACTUALLY FROM GRINDR.

THEY'RE NOT ACTUALLY SLIDE YOU SEE ON THE SECOND FLOOR HERE, WE HAVE A SUPER EFFICIENT, DOUBLE LOADED CORRIDOR ON SECOND FLOOR, UM, TAKE IN, UH, ACTUAL, THEY LIKE TO ALREADY THE DORMS, THE LEFT SIDE IS PRIMARILY FIRE AND AFRICA IS BURIED IN THE CENTER AND

[00:10:01]

PROVIDING ALSO ADDITIONAL TRAINING, DEVELOPING THEIR X OUT APPARATUS PACE.

NEXT SLIDE.

ALL RIGHT.

SO THIS IS THE EXTERIOR OF THE BUILDING.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING THROUGH THAT CORNER OF STOCK AND CAPITOL VIEW, UM, THAT'S, WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO IS LAY A LITTLE BIT THOSE IMAGES THAT WE SHOWED EARLIER, THE, UH, RESIDENTIAL AREAS TO BECOME INGRAINED VIRUS, MEN OPS ST.

GEAR IS A MUCH MORE COMMERCIAL, UM, LONG-LASTING FIBROUS MINT OR ITS PRODUCTS, THE GRAY, AND THEN USING COLORS FROM FIRE ENERGY MASKS, WHICH ARE THE BLUE AND RED TO KIND OF ACCENT THE BAYS, BUT ARE BEAUTIFUL, SMOKY PAST, BUT THEN USING NATURAL, UH, TEXAS SAND STONE COLOR TO ACCENT PORTION, BUILDING THE PRIORITY.

AND THEN IN ADDITION TO THAT, BREAKING DOWN THE MAPS OF THE GREAT WALL OF A GEOMETRIC PATTERN, UM, JUST TO PROVIDE SOME MORE VISUAL INTEREST TO THE PUBLIC, UM, ON THE STREETS BROC THERE ON IN FRONT OF THE STUFF, THAT'S ALL GOING TO BE HIGH.

IT DOESN'T BUILD THE GLASS TO GO OUT IN PUBLIC TO SEE, AND TO THE APPARATUSES, UM, AND ALL THAT SIGNAGE WILL FACE THE CORNER.

WELL, NEXT SLIDE.

SO THIS IS A VIEW FROM THAT ACCESSIBLE PARKING SPOT TOWARDS THE LOBBY.

THIS IS AUDIO SUBJECT THREE, THIS IS OUR PRIME FACADE.

SO ALL OF THOSE DOORS WILL BE, I WAS BUILDING GLAZING.

UM, THEN HE GOT THE GLAZING GOING INTO THE PAINT STRUCTURE AS WELL, THAT WE ARE FINDING MORE REFLECTIVE GLASS, JUST TRYING TO SEE FOR THE RESPONDERS THAT STARING IN KIND OF GUN BUTTON, BUT JUST LOOK US OUT OR WE'RE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE THE HIGH VISIBILITY PLACING, BUT WE'RE ALSO PROVIDING .

SO THIS IS JUST TO ALLOW USED INTO THAT TO THE APPARATUS SPACE, SPACE X PART OF THE APPEAL OF THE SIGNAGE THAT WE FACE, THE STREET PATTERN THAT WE'RE APPLYING.

SO THIS WOULD BE ON STOCK AND HEADING TOWARDS CAPITAL.

HE WAS KIND OF LEADING INTO GOODNIGHT BRANCH DEVELOPMENT.

UM, HERE YOU CAN SEE THE EXTERIOR TRAINING STAIR.

SO WHAT WE'VE GOT HERE IS TYPICALLY THESE TRAIN STAIRS ARE VERY HEAVY CMU, JUST REAL MASSES.

UH, WE WANTED TO BREAK THAT UP AND MAKE IT SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE APPEALING TO THE PUBLIC ON SUCH AS ACCESS PRODUCT AND DISPLAY.

AND IT CAN BE A LITTLE BIT LIGHTER.

SO THIS IS GOING TO BE A STEEL STROKE STEEL SKELETON, WHICH HAS BEEN FLAGGED AND GALVANIZED STEEL BRAIDING.

UM, SO IT'S STILL WHAT'S DAMPENING ABUSE LADDERS THROWN UP AGAINST IT.

UH, JUST GETS THE STRUCTURAL LITTLE BIT OF LIGHTNESS SAYS NEXT SLIDE.

AND THIS IS A VIEW FROM THE BACKYARD LANDSCAPE.

WE'LL HAVE SOME DIFFICULT RENDERINGS SHOWING HOW THIS WILL BE USED, BUT YOU JUST SEE HOW THE, UM, THAT, UH, PATIO OF TIES AND THE KITCHEN AND DINING AREA, THEY ARE REALLY ALL WORKS TOGETHER TO CREATE A REALLY NICE SPACE PRIOR TO THE PASSENGERS MONITORS, WHERE THEY CAN WORK OUT ON THE GYM, LEADS OUT THERE TO WORKOUT AND HE CAN TRAIN, THEY CAN COOK, UH, SPIRITUALLY, UH, REALLY THREE MORE SUPPORT SLOT, UM, OR ASSETS THAT ARE BE CAREFUL PORTION.

AND THEN WE'LL SIT AND TAKE CARE OF QUIT SOME LANDSCAPE DISCUSSION.

YEP.

SO, UM, LET'S SEE.

SO THIS PARTICULAR FIRE STATION, UH, ENDED UP WITH HAVE PRETTY GENEROUS BACKYARD IF YOU WILL.

AND SO THERE'S A GOOD BIT OF PROGRAM THAT WAS ALLOWED ON THE SITE.

UM, WE HAVE A WORKOUT AREA, UM, THAT WE HAVE THE SHAPE SALES STRUCTURE SYNDICATED THERE, BLUE, UM, TO GIVE USEFULNESS TO.

SO IT'S ALL, ALL NEW TRACY.

UM, THERE'S AN OUTDOOR DINING AREA ADJACENT TO THAT BARBECUE AREA THAT, UH, SURGERY, AND THERE IS AN AREA, UH, SORT OF BOTTOM LEFT CORNER FOR TRADING OR FOR THAT SPACE YOU'RE DEALING WITH YOU.

UH, AND THEN, UH, THERE IS A, AN ENCLOSED, UH, PARKING AREA FOR, UH, FIRST RESPONDERS THAT HAS A GATE AT THE TOP PARTNER.

UH, WE HAVE A PRETTY GENEROUS PLANTED AREA OF BUFFER AROUND THAT.

AND THEN FOR THE FRONT YARD, IF YOU WILL, UH, THAT LITTLE TRIANGLE, UH, WE HAVE A MIX OF DATA CANTEENS, UH, THERE TO BE REALLY EXCELLENT.

[00:15:01]

THAT'S SO RENDERING LOOKING, UH, IN THAT AREA THAT I JUST MENTIONED, AND THAT IS THE EXERCISE PERIOD TRADING NEXT.

UH, AND YEAH.

UM, AND THEN THIS IS SORT OF ANOTHER GATHERING AREA.

THEY, THIS STATION IS BEING LOOKED AT AS, YOU KNOW, IF THEY NEEDED TO HAVE LARGER DREAMS, THIS SPACE WOULD ALLOW FOR SUCH THINGS TO GO SO FAR AS PATIENTS COME TOGETHER.

THE LAST ONE I BELIEVE WAS THE DINING AREA.

YES THAT'S.

YEAH.

I'LL JUST TOUCH BRIEFLY ON THE SUSTAINABILITY BILL, THE ASPECTS.

SO OUR MANDATE IS TO, UM, TO ACHIEVE BOTH LEAD SILVER AND AGB THREE-STAR.

UM, SO CAN'T REALLY SEE HERE, BUT OUR FIRST CHUNK OF THE LEAD MATRIX UP THERE IS RELATED TO SITE.

UM, AND WE ESSENTIALLY TO GET THE WHOLE THING TO THE 16 POINTS, JUST BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION, LACK OF LACK OF DENSITY, LACK OF ACCESS TO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, AND JUST LITERALLY NOTHING WE CAN DO TO ACHIEVE TWO OF THOSE POINTS, WHICH IS MUCH LESS THAN WE'D BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE IN THAT SECTION FOR EVERY OTHER STATION.

UM, SO WE'RE CURRENTLY, UH, WE HAVE 50 POINTS FOR LATE SILVER.

WE HAVE 48 POINTS THAT WE'RE CONFIDENT THAT WE'RE ACHIEVING, AND WE HAVE 10 MORE THAT ARE HIGH BABIES, WHICH WE'LL CONTINUE TO PURSUE THROUGH CONSTRUCTION.

SO CONFIDENT WILL BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THESE TWO MORE OF THOSE.

AND THEN WITH AGB, WE'RE ALREADY CONFIDENT THAT WE HAVE, I THINK IT'S 40 POINTS THAT WE NEED TO GET THE THREE-STAR, WE'RE ALREADY HAVE 40 POINTS THAT ARE, UM, SAFELY IN THE ESCOBAR TAKEN WITH DEL VALLEY.

UM, I CAN'T MESS IT UP AS THE OTHER STATION WE TRIED OR IF THAT'D BE INJECTED AND EGD ON, WE ACTUALLY GOT FOUR STARS OF YOUR OWN, TRYING TO GET A GRADE.

SO PRETTY CONFIDENT THAT WE'LL, UH, EASILY ABLE TO GET THE AGV THREE-STAR HERE AS WELL.

OKAY.

UM, YEAH.

UM, QUESTIONS, UM, HE, THE SPOT, SOMEONE THAT YOU ABLE TO STILL MAKE IT TO PRECISE, THAT'S NOT A SMALL FEAT GIVEN THAT YOU DON'T HAVE THE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS.

AND WE SAW THAT YOU'RE DOING BOTH THE INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT AND THE GREEN CROSS KEEPING.

UM, SINCE THOSE ARE BOTH STILL HEAVILY INVOLVED WITH, UM, YOU KNOW, UH, INDOOR CONDITIONS, IT SEEMS LIKE YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY TO GETTING A GREENFIELD CERTIFICATION.

DON'T RECALL.

THAT'S SOMETHING WE'LL NEED TO DISCUSS WITH, WE'D GONE THROUGH WITH HER, UH, THE CONSULTANT WHO'S NOT HERE TONIGHT.

UM, SHE'S BROKEN IT DOWN FOR US.

I CAN WEAVE ALL OF THAT.

UM, WELL I THINK YOU ALREADY ARE MENTALITY.

SO IT'S REALLY ABOUT KIND OF USING CHEMICAL FREE AND PARTICIPATION FREE IF YOU'RE DOING THE INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT AND THE IT'S LIKE , SO IT'S JUST AN ADDITIONAL BENEFIT.

WE GET A STICKER NUMBER WITH NO.

UM, BUT OTHER THAN THAT, YEAH.

HOW DO I HEAR SOMETHING? I DON'T RECALL SEEING ON SOME OF THE OTHER POWER STATIONS AND ON DID THAT, DOES THAT HAPPEN? AND IT WAS OUR STATION, SO STRENGTHS.

SO WE PROVIDED AT THE FIRST TWO STATIONS AT DEL VALLEY EXTRACT AS PUNCH RATE.

UM, BOTH OF THOSE WERE 6,000 COUNT ON PROGRAM TANKS.

YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO DO IT AT WORK FROM THE OTHER CONSTRUCTION BECAUSE OF SITE CONSTRAINTS.

AND HERE WE'LL BE PROVIDING A 10,000 POUNDS BANK ESSENTIALLY.

UM, THERE'LL BE ABLE TO BE USED PRIMARILY BY FIRE AND GAS, BUT ALSO ANY OTHER CITY VEHICLES CAN HAVE ACCESS TO IT.

UM, AND IT'S NOT GETTING ITEMS SECURE DATA RIGHT.

OF THINGS.

SO THEY CAN JUST PULL IT TO THE APPARATUS BAY AND, UM, AND FILL UP, UM, AS FAR AS COLOR CREAMS RATES, IT'S ALL ABOVE GROUND.

SO WE DON'T NEED EIGHT SORT OF BEARING ATTAINED SUB GRADE, UM, A LITTLE BIT OF CLEARANCES.

WE HAVE TO KEEP AROUND 18 INCHES.

UM, AND THERE'S A PATH WITH THIS RIGHT HERE, A FEW BREAK.

WE HAVE TWO GOLD, THAT'S ABOUT FIVE FOOT RADIUS WHERE WE CAN HAVE KIND OF, WOW.

IS THERE ANYTHING, UM, IN THAT PAPER, UM, PAPER AREA, BUT THAT'S A PAIN

[00:20:03]

AS FAR AS ANY IT'S LIKE THAT IT'S YES.

SO THAT'S NOT SHOWN IN THE RENDERINGS, BUT WE DO HAVE THIS SIMILAR, UM, RE FIBER CEMENT WORK AND PROVIDING THE BUILDING IN THAT.

WE'LL BE GLAD IN THIS, UM, ANCHOR ON THREESOMES.

SO THE ONLY ASIDE FEED THE BACKSIDE SPACING, LIKE, UH, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE THE CHARGING STATIONS FOR THE FIREFIGHTERS VEHICLES.

YES.

THAT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU'VE BEEN IN PROVIDING A TOOL.

EVIE CHARGING STATION INVOLVE THE STATION SO FAR THAT GOES WITHIN THE SECURE PARKING.

UM, AND THAT'S A, IT'S AN EASY THING PRESSED AGAINST.

SO WE JUST DO THAT.

I ALSO NEGLECTED TO MENTION THAT WE ARE ALSO GETTING POTABLE TANKS ON THIS PROJECT.

SO THAT'S HELPING US MAKE UP SOME VET DEFICIT THAT PEOPLE IN OUR, UM, OUR SITE SECTION MATRIX, UH, I HAVE QUESTIONS, WELL, FIRST I THINK THE MASS THING, AND THAT'S, REALLY THE TA PATH AND, AND THE TRAINING, UM, THE OF THE SENSE THAT YOU'VE DESCRIBED.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT TWO OPTIONS.

ONE IS A, UH, STEP SANSOM MOTIVATOR.

UM, AND IF THE OTHER ONE WOULD BE A BURNISHING BLOCK, WHICH IS SIMILAR, BUT YEAH, THAT'S WHAT THAT WAS.

THAT WAS MY PITCH TO, BECAUSE EVERYTHING ELSE HAS GOT THIS REALLY NICE TEXTURE SOUNDS GOOD.

THE IDEA IS THAT ON, ON THE APPARATUS PHASE, THERE REALLY WON'T BE TOO MUCH OF LIKE A HUMAN WALKING RIGHT NEXT TO THE BUILDING OF PEAK, MOSTLY VEHICLES.

BUT ON THAT TWO-STORY STRUCTURE, THAT'S WHERE PEOPLE ARE ENTERING AND MAKING OUT.

SO THE PROTECTORS WILL FEEL GREAT TO FIRST BLOCK TO BE THERE LEVEL.

AWESOME.

UM, AND THEN THE OUTDOOR AREA, I NOTICED THAT IT'S GOING TO BE FACE AND VOICE, AND YOU'VE GOT SOME OLD TREES, UM, PLANTING TREES.

SO JUST WANDERING AND MAKING SURE THAT THE SPECIES DIVERSITY START TO SEND OUT THAT IT'S SOMETHING GOOD DAY ONE.

WELL, THAT'S ACTUALLY GOOD.

A LITTLE SPACE, OR MAYBE NOT THE POINT OF SHARING.

IT'S STRICTLY, JUST LIKE I SAID, THAT'S A GOOD NUMBER OF CHEESE THERE.

UM, I'LL SHARE.

YEAH.

I'D SAY IT'S KIND OF A MULTI-TIERED APPROACH BECAUSE, UM, DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE DAY, THE BUILDING, THE OVERHEAD PROVIDES STRUCTURE AND THEN AS PRETTY AS THE SUN GETS LOWER AND OFF THE TREES, EVEN THOUGH THERE'S NOT MASSIVE AMOUNT OF THEM, THAT'S REASONABLE CAST, LONG SHADOWS.

SO DEPENDING ON TIME OF YEAR, THERE MAY BE AN HOUR OR TWO IN THERE WHERE IT'S LIKE MORE COMFORTABLE, BUT THERE'S ALSO WIDE VARIETY OF SEATING LOCATIONS.

SO YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE ABLE TO FIND SOMEPLACE TO SAY IT LIKE IT'S STILL MIGHT HAVE TO NOT.

YEAH.

AND I DON'T KNOW HOW PEOPLE ACTUALLY USE THAT AND WHAT TIME OF DAY THEY SLEEP IN THE MORNING, IT'S GOING TO BE JADED.

ANYTHING ELSE? THE COMMISSION IT'S JUST, THANKS GUYS.

APPRECIATE IT.

UM, HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT ENTRANCES FROM THIS.

ARE THEY UNDER TWO ENTRANCES COMING IN OR IS THIS ONE, THIS ONE ON THE, I GUESS ON THE LEFT SIDE, UPPER LEFT, THE MORE SIDE, LIKE A SECONDARY ENTRANCE.

JUST NOT, NOT FOR THE PUBLIC.

YEAH.

SO I FEEL BAD.

I'M GOING TO GO BACK AND GO TO THE PORT.

MAYBE I WAS LOOKING AT THE, I GUESS THE LANDSCAPE SITE PLAN.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

YEAH.

THEY WOULD GO UP TO THE, UH, DOWN A COUPLE OF THEM PULL THAT ONE.

YEAH.

SO, UH, RIGHT-HAND SIDE THERE THAT'S THE LOBBY.

THAT WOULD BE THE PUBLIC ENTRANCE.

YEAH.

SO THE FIRE AND EMS RESPONDERS HAVE, UM, TWO MAIN ENTRANCES INTO THE BUILDING.

ONE WOULD BE THE DOUBLE DOORS ONTO THE PATIO THAT WILL PROBABLY BASED ON THE WAY THEY'RE USING THE EXISTING STATIONS.

SO THAT'S PROBABLY WHAT THEY'LL ACTUALLY USE.

AND THERE'S ALSO INTEREST THOUGH.

THERE MIGHT BE TRADING STAIRWAYS CAN GO EITHER INTO THE AMARANTH SPACE, INTO THE STATION.

OKAY.

[00:25:02]

OKAY.

WOULD ANYBODY LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION ABOUT WHERE THE PFIZER FACILITY DESIRE TO SAVE A LITTLE, THE SADNESS? WAS THE THEM CORRECT? BUT WHAT ELSE AM I SUPPOSED TO SAY? UM, THAT GOODNIGHT RANCH DOES SUBSTANTIALLY COMPLY WITH THE CITY DESIGN.

AND ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU WANT A SECOND.

EXCELLENT.

LET'S SAY I ASKED YOU THAT YESTERDAY, ANYTHING VERY MUCH.

SO I

[1.b. Discussion and possible action to evaluate and make recommendations regarding whether the Dougherty Arts Center, located 200 S Lamar Blvd., complies with the City Design and Sustainability Standards, for the City of Austin. Applicant(s): Kevin Johnson]

DON'T WANT TO BE DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION TO EVALUATE, I THINK, RECOMMENDATIONS.

WHAT ABOUT THE DIRTY ART SECTOR, BUT PAINTED ON 200, 300, UH, SOMEONE COME OUT A LITTLE BIT COMPLIES WITH THE CITY WAS I HAD SUSTAINABILITY SADNESS OF CITY OF AUSTIN.

I LINE EVERYBODY.

CAN YOU SEE ME? YES, WE CAN SEE AND HEAR YOU ALL RIGHT.

GOOD TO SEE SOME FAMILIAR FACES, BUT YOU'RE FAR AWAY ON MY SCREEN.

UM, AND SEE, I'M JOINED BY ROBERT BURNS TODAY.

GUN, ARE YOU ABLE TO MOVE HIM OVER AS WELL? WHO WAS THAT? ROBERT BURNS.

OH YEAH.

AND THEN HE'LL JUST NEED TO MANUALLY TURN OFF VIDEO AND AUDIO.

PERFECT.

THERE HE IS.

ALL RIGHT, WELL, I'LL GO AHEAD AND KICK THINGS OFF BEFORE I HAND IT OVER TO ROBERT, BUT, UM, GOOD EVENING TO THE COMMISSION ON KEVIN JOHNSON.

I WORK WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT AS A PROJECT MANAGEMENT SUPERVISOR.

AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN ON THE COMMISSION FOR A WHILE, YOU MAY HAVE SEEN US PRESENT THIS PROJECT ONCE OR MAYBE TWICE.

UM, OUR DEPARTMENT HAS LONG BEEN SEEKING A REPLACEMENT FACILITY FOR THE DOOR TO THE ART CENTER, AND WE'RE EXCITED TO BE IN THIS POSITION TO MOVE EVER CLOSER, UM, FORWARD TO MAKING THIS FACILITY A REALITY.

WE'VE JUST, UM, APPROACHED THE END OF THE DD PHASE, AWAITING OUR NEXT ROUND OF PRICING AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SHARING THIS IMAGERY WITH YOU.

UH, SO IF WE JUMP TO THE NEXT SLIDE, I'LL PROVIDE JUST A LITTLE BIT OF CONTEXT HERE TO GET US STARTED.

KEVIN, I BELIEVE YOU CAN SHARE YOUR SCREEN OR DID YOU WANT ME TO HOST YOUR, YOUR SPOTS? UH, EITHER WAY I'VE GOT IT PULLED UP TOO.

I WILL SHARE IF THAT'S EASIER.

LET'S SEE.

ALL RIGHT.

IS THAT LOADED? YES.

ALRIGHT.

SO AGAIN, THIS MIGHT BE A, WHOOPS, THIS MIGHT BE A REFRESHER FOR SOME OF YOU WHO HAVE SEEN IT BEFORE, BUT THE CURRENT DOHERTY ARTS CENTER IS LOCATED IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT SIDE OF THE SLIDE AT THE PURPLE ASTERISK CORNER OF BARTON SPRINGS ROAD AND DAWSON.

UH, WE CONDUCTED A PLANNING PROCESS THAT CONCLUDED IN 2019, AND WE WENT TO COUNCIL SEEKING APPROVAL TO MOVE IT TO THE LOCATION OF THE YELLOW ASTERISK AT THE BUTLER SHORES PARK, THE SIDE OF THESE TWO SOFTBALL FIELDS THAT ARE ORIENTED TO THE NORTHEAST, UM, ON THIS SLIDE AND RECEIVED COUNCIL APPROVAL TO DO THAT, UM, THAT APPROVAL CAME WITH SOME CONDITIONS THAT WE LOOK AT MULTIPLE SCENARIOS FOR REDEVELOPMENT ON THIS SITE.

SO WE THEN WENT INTO A PRELIMINARY DESIGN PROCESS, UM, LOOKING AT THESE MULTIPLE SCENARIOS.

WE BROUGHT THOSE BACK TO THE DESIGN COMMISSION, UH, EARLY IN 2021.

SO THIS LOOKS FAMILIAR.

THAT WAS WHEN WE WERE LAST VISITING WITH YOU ALL.

UM, AND WE ENDED UP, UM, ON THIS NEXT SLIDE TAKING THIS SCHEME, WHICH WAS THE PREFERENCE, UM, BOTH OF THE DESIGN COMMISSION AND CITY COUNCIL BEFORE SEEKING THEIR APPROVAL TO MOVE FULLY INTO, UH, DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION WITH THE SCHEME YOU'RE SEEING HERE ON THE SCREEN.

SO, UM, THE NEW DOOR TO YARD CENTER, BUILDING MASSING SITTING RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF THE SITE, IT'S DIRECTLY SOUTH OF THE PARD MAIN OFFICE.

I'M SORRY, THE LABELS ARE TURNED OFF ON THIS IMAGE, BUT RIVERSIDE DRIVE IS ON THE TOP OF YOUR SCREEN, LAMAR BOULEVARD RUNNING ALONG THE RIGHT SIDE, AND TWO ME ROAD ON THE SOUTH.

UM, AND AGAIN, OUR SITE ENCOMPASSES THE AREA, JUST THAT THOSE TWO SOFTBALL FIELDS IT'S TUCKED DIRECTLY ADJACENT TO THE ZACK THEATER.

UM, AND THAT LEASE BOUNDARY IS SHOWN BY THIS BLUE DASHED LINE, UM, JUST TO THE

[00:30:01]

EAST OF OUR SITE.

SO SOME OF THE INTENTIONS BEHIND THIS DESIGN SCHEME WERE TO MAXIMIZE THE AMOUNT OF OPEN PARK SPACE ON THE SITE AND TO CREATE WHAT COULD BE CONSIDERED AN ARTS PLAZA CONNECTING THE ZACK THEATER AND THE NEW DOOR, THE ARTS CENTER ALONG THIS AXIS HERE, UH, THIS SCHEME ALSO PRIORITIZES VEHICULAR ENTRANCE FROM RIVERSIDE DRIVE.

AND THERE IS ACTUALLY, UM, ACCESS TO AN UNDERGROUND GARAGE, WHICH SITS UNDERNEATH THE BUILDING FOOTPRINT, UM, ACCESS ONLY FROM RIVERSIDE, THERE'S A DROP-OFF ON, IT'S GOING TO BE ROADSIDE, UM, JUST AT SURFACE LEVEL, BUT THAT GARAGE ACCESS IS STRICTLY FROM RIVERSIDE.

UM, AND OUR TEAM HAS WORKED WITH A TRANSPORTATION CONSULTANT TO DEVELOP A TRAFFIC DEMAND MANAGEMENT STUDY TO RIGHT-SIZE THIS PARKING BASED ON ALL OF THE SURROUNDING, UM, USES IN THE DISTRICT.

AND SO CURRENTLY OUR PARKING GARAGE IS SITTING AT TWO LEVELS, TOTALLING ABOUT 130 SPACES, AND I'LL QUICKLY HIT THESE NEXT TWO SLIDES THERE, A BRIEF DISTILLATION OF OUR MOST RECENT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROCESS.

UH, THIS TOOK PLACE EARLIER IN THAT DESIGN PHASE THAT I SPOKE HAVE HELD SEVERAL PUBLIC MEETINGS AND 10 SMALL GROUP MEETINGS THAT TARGETED SPECIFIC USER GROUPS OF THE DECK.

UM, I DON'T WANT TO HIT EVERY ASPECT OF THE SLIDE, BUT YOU'LL SEE SOME COMMON THEMES AND DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS HERE, INCLUDING THE SENTIMENT THAT THE NEW DECK BUILDING SHOULD BE THE BACKDROP TO THE ARTWORK.

EXCUSE ME, JUST ONE SEC.

OKAY.

I THINK THAT'S A CONCEPT THAT YOU'LL SEE AS WE GET FURTHER INTO THE DESIGN IMAGERY OF THIS PRESENTATION.

AND AS I JUMPED TO THE NEXT SLIDE, YOU'LL SEE THAT THERE'S A SENSE THAT, UH, THAT THERE'S A DESIRE FOR A SENSE OF ARRIVAL DISCOVERY AND INSPIRATION AT THE NEW CENTER, BUT THAT THE ARCHITECTURE DID NOT NEED TO BE LOUD, UM, RATHER TO OPEN UP AND INTEGRATE TO THE PARK SITE.

SO AGAIN, AS I HAND THINGS OFF TO ROBERT, HE'LL BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO THAT.

UM, THAT PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT PROCESS REALLY DROVE THE CREATION OF THIS MISSION STATEMENT FOR OUR DESIGN TEAM.

DID WANT TO POINT OUT THAT, EXCUSE ME, JUST ONE SECOND.

ALL RIGHT.

I DID WANT TO POINT OUT THAT THE DECK ENDEAVORS TO BE AUSTIN'S CULTURAL LIVING ROOM AND A HUB OF CREATIVITY.

UM, I ALSO WANT TO POINT OUT HERE THAT IT SEEMS TO BE A SUSTAINABLE MODEL OF PARKS FACILITIES AND, UH, IN, UH, AUSTIN'S PARK NETWORK, THIS IS A PROJECT THAT IS PURSUING BOTH LEAD CERTIFICATION.

WE'RE ON TRACK FOR GOLD CERTIFICATION.

WE'RE ALSO PURSUING A WELL CERTIFICATION.

AND IF SUCCESSFUL, THIS WOULD BE THE FIRST HARD FACILITY TO HAVE THAT DESIGNATION AND I'LL QUICKLY HIT SOME OF THE SITE CONSTRAINTS, UH, OF WHICH THERE ARE MANY, I THINK THIS SLIDE ILLUSTRATES PRETTY WELL.

WHAT WE WERE GRAPPLING WITH IN THE PRELIMINARY DESIGN PHASE.

UM, THE SITE'S PRETTY HEMMED IN BY UTILITY EASEMENTS.

UM, THE ZACH SCOTT LEASE BOUNDARY AGAIN IN THAT BLUE DASH LINE AND SOME PRETTY IMPRESSIVE HERITAGE TREES ON SITE.

SO YOU SEE THE BUILDING MASSING REALLY THREADING THE NEEDLE BETWEEN THOSE ELEMENTS OF THE SITE.

UM, WE FEEL THAT THE BUILDING PLACEMENT REALLY CAPITALIZES ON IT WAS ESTABLISHED OAKS AND COTTONWOOD TREES CREATING SOME VERY WELCOMING COURTYARD IN PLAZA SPACES.

SO WITH THAT, LET ME TURN IT OVER TO ROBERT.

I'LL LET HIM SPEAK TO THE LANDSCAPE DESIGN A LITTLE BIT MORE FULLY HERE.

THANK YOU, KEVIN, AND GOOD EVENING, EVERYBODY.

SO, UH, AS KEVIN POINTED OUT, WE'VE CITED THE BUILDING, UH, AS YOU SEE IN THE GRAY BLOCK, UH, WITHIN THE SIDE, YOU CAN SEE THAT THERE IS A LARGE PARK AREA THAT'S BEEN DEVELOPED, UM, TO THE EAST OF OUR BUILDING, UH, WITH THE MAIN ENTRY POINT AND DROP OFF, UH, FOR THE BUILDING TO THE NORTH OFF RIVERSIDE DRIVE.

UM, AND, UH, AGAIN, A, A DROP-OFF POINT, UH, FOR THE YOUTH PROGRAMS PRIMARILY ON THE SOUTH SIDE OFF OF TEENY ROAD, UH, CONNECTIVITY TO THE EXTERIOR WAS REALLY IMPORTANT WITH THIS PROJECT AS IS MAINTAINING AND TAKING FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE HERITAGE TREES THAT, UH, POPULATE THIS SITE.

UH, NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

SO THE SORORITY ARTS CENTER IS COMPOSED OF PRIMARILY FIVE LARGE PROGRAMMATIC ELEMENTS.

UH, THERE'S THE YOUTH PROGRAM OR THE SCHOOL, THERE'S THE STUDIOS, THERE'S

[00:35:01]

THE THEATERS AND GALLERY.

UM, THERE'S THE ADMINISTRATIVE PORTION OF IT AND THERE'S PUBLIC PORTION OF IT.

SO IN DEVELOPING THIS PROJECT, THERE ARE SOME ELEMENTS THAT, UM, EXIST CURRENTLY AT THE NEW DECK THAT WILL BE IMPROVED WITH THIS NEW PROJECT.

UH, THE SCHOOL DROP OFF AND PICKUP WILL BE GREATLY IMPROVED, UH, WITH ACCESS OFF OF TINNY ROAD.

UH, THE NEW FACILITY WILL HAVE A TRUE PERCENT LIAM THEATER, WHICH HAD CURRENTLY DOES NOT HAVE, AND, UM, ACCESSIBILITY, THIS, THIS FACILITY WILL BE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL.

UM, THERE ARE SOME ELEMENTS THAT ARE EXPANDING AND IMPROVING AT THE DECK.

SO THE OUTDOOR PLAYGROUND, WHICH IS DIRECTLY OFF OF THE, UM, YOUTH PROGRAM WILL BE A NEW SECURED, UM, OUTDOOR PLAY AREA WITH NATURE PLAY.

UM, THERE WILL BE A REHEARSAL SPACE WITHIN THIS FACILITY, WHICH THE DECK CURRENTLY DOES NOT HAVE.

THIS IS ALSO COULD BE A MULTI-PURPOSE SPACE THAT CAN BE UTILIZED FOR COMMUNITY MEETINGS AND SO FORTH, UM, AND, UH, OPPORTUNITY FOR DISPLAYS OF ART THROUGHOUT THE FACILITY AND THE GROUNDS.

UH, WHAT'S NEW AT THE DECK WILL BE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUTDOOR LEARNING SPACES WITH ITS ADJACENCY TO THE NEW PARK.

UM, THIS NEW FACILITY WILL HAVE ARTISTS AND RESIDENTS STUDIOS AS WELL AS AN ARTIST RESOURCE CENTER WITHIN THE BUILDING.

UM, IT WILL ALSO HAVE A NEW BLACK BOX THEATER, WHICH IT CURRENTLY DOES NOT HAVE.

AND THEN FOR PUBLIC SPACES, THERE WILL BE A ROOFTOP TERRACE, UM, AND ALSO, UH, PRIVATE AND PUBLIC COURTYARDS THAT ARE PROGRAMMABLE.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO AGAIN, I TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE PROGRAM, SO ORGANIZATIONALLY, THIS IS, UH, HOW THE PROGRAM LAYS OUT, UH, WITHIN THE PLANS.

AND WE'LL GO INTO A LITTLE MORE DETAIL IN A MINUTE, UH, BUT SHE CAN SEE THAT, UM, THE FIVE PROGRAM ELEMENTS ON THE GROUND FLOOR, THERE IS AN ADMINISTRATIVE WING TO THE NORTH, UM, IN THE PINK AREA, UH, TO THE SOUTH OF THAT IN THE GREEN AREA IS THE, UH, YOUTH PROGRAM, UH, TO THE WEST OF THAT.

THERE'S A LARGE BLOCK, WHICH IS THE THEATER AND GALLERY PROGRAM ON THE SECOND FLOOR LEVEL.

WE HAVE THE ADULT STUDIOS, UH, AND THEN, UM, UH, TO THE WEST AGAIN, ON THE SECOND FLOOR LEVEL, WE HAVE A GALLERY WHICH WILL BE DESIGNED TO SMITHSONIAN STANDARDS.

SO LOOKING AT HOW THE PLAN SITS ON THE SIDE, IT WAS IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN CONNECTIVITY, TO GET SURROUNDINGS TO THE NEW PARK, TO THE SOUTH DROP OFF TO THE NORTH DROP OFF, AND AS WELL AS TO THE WEST TOWARDS THE ZACH SCOTT THEATER.

SO WE HAVE ENTRY POINTS ON ALL FOUR LOCATIONS, UH, THAT, THAT ARE INTERCONNECTED BY PUBLIC SPACES.

UM, THE CENTER AREA WE'RE CALLING THE HIGH, BUT IT'S A TWO-STORY LOBBY SPACE.

THAT IS THE HUB OF ACTIVITY FOR THIS FACILITY.

AND IT ESSENTIALLY ORGANIZES ALL OF THE MASSING AROUND THIS ELEMENT.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

OKAY.

AGAIN, PLAN, UM, YOU CAN SEE THE OFFICE WING IN THE PINK, UH, ON THE NORTH END, UH, THESE SCHOOL, UH, YOUTH PROGRAMS ON THE SOUTH END ZONE, THE PRIMARY ENTRY WILL BE OFF OF THE SOUTH COURTYARD, UM, FROM THE SOUTH SIDE.

AND THEN, UH, YOU CAN SEE A SCHOOL LOBBY THERE THAT WILL HAVE DIRECT CONNECTION THROUGH, TO AN OUTDOOR PLAYGROUND AGAIN, WHICH IS CURED TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PURPLE BLOCK HOUSES.

THE PERCENT OF THEM THEATER, THE BLACK BOX THEATER AND THE SUPPORT SPACE IS NEEDED TO SUPPORT THE THEATER ACTIVITIES.

NEXT SLIDE, THE SECOND FLOOR LEVEL, UH, WE PLACED THE ADULT STUDIOS.

UH, AGAIN, THERE'S A PUBLIC SPACE THAT INTERCONNECTS ON THE SECOND FLOOR LEVEL.

THERE'S A SKY BRIDGE THAT CONNECTS TO WHAT WE'RE CALLING THE ARTISTS CONNECT SPACE.

THIS IS A COLLABORATIVE AREA, UH, THAT'S ESSENTIALLY UTILIZED BY ARTISTS AND THE PUBLIC, UH, AND THEN TO THE RIGHT SIDE, UH, IS ACCESS TO THE MAIN GALLERY SPACE.

UM, THE, UM, REHEARSAL SPACE IS, UM, JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THE SKYBRIDGE, UH, THAT OVERLOOKS, UM, THE TWO-STORY LOBBY SPACE AND HELPS TO ACTIVATE THAT SPACE SLIME.

[00:40:01]

WELL, THE TOP LEVEL, WE'RE PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR A ROOF TERRACE.

AGAIN, THIS IS A SPACE THAT CAN BE PROGRAMMED AND UTILIZED FOR A NUMBER OF FUNCTIONS, UM, AND SHOULD HAVE GREAT VIEWS, UH, TO THE BEAUTIFUL OAK TREES TO THE NORTH, AS WELL AS THE SKYLINE.

SO CONCEPTUALLY THINKING ABOUT HOW WE PUT THIS BUILDING TOGETHER, WE STARTED LOOKING AT HOW THE SITE IS SITTING CURRENTLY, UM, WITH PARDON MAINE AND WITH THESE FABULOUS OAK TREES THAT SIT ON THE SITE.

SO IN ESSENCE, THERE IS AN UNDERSTORY, UH, WHICH IS PEDESTRIAN LEVEL.

UM, YOU KNOW, THE ORIGINAL PART BUILDING IS A SINGLE STORY BUILDING, UH, THAT KIND OF FITS WITHIN THIS ZONE, THE UPPER ZONE, WE'RE CALLING THE CANOPY ZONE SECOND FLOOR LEVEL.

THIS IS UP IN THE TREES ESSENTIALLY.

AND THEN ABOVE THAT, OF COURSE IS THE SKY ZONE.

SO LOOKING AT HOW THE BUILDING MASSES TOGETHER, UM, YOU CAN SEE THAT, UH, AGAIN, WE'VE GOT THE, UH, UNDER STORIES ZONE, WHICH HOUSES, SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION, AND THE MAIN ENTRIES TO THE BUILDING, THE ORIGINAL PART MAIN SETS IN THIS ZONE, THE, UH, CANOPY AREA.

SO PART MAIN HAS A TWO-STORY ADDITION THAT BEGINS TO HAVE A TALLER MASS TO IT.

AND THEN OF COURSE OUR BUILDING, THE ADULT STUDIOS, THE GALLERY, AND THE THEATERS EXTEND INTO THIS MASS.

AND FINALLY THE ROOF TERRACE IS, UM, MORE AKIN TO THE SKY.

AND AGAIN, VIEWS, UH, BEYOND THE TREES TO DOWNTOWN TYING ALL THAT TOGETHER.

UH, WE HAVE A RIBBON ELEMENT WHICH YOU'LL SEE IN A FEW OTHER RENDERINGS, UM, THIS, UH, PERSPECTIVE, YOU GIVES YOU A SENSE OF HOW THE BUILDING SITS IN THE SIDE AND SITS IN THE CONTEXT OF THE CITY.

AND YOU SEE THAT ZACH SCOTT SITS TO THE WEST AND PART MAIN SETTINGS TO THE NORTH OR TO THE EAST, AND I'LL WALK THROUGH SOME EXTERIOR PERSPECTIVE VIEWS, AND WE'LL KIND OF UNPACK EACH ONE OF THESE.

SO THIS IS THE PEDESTRIAN EXPERIENCE COMING FROM THE NORTH, THE DROP-OFF AREA, COMING INTO THIS COURTYARD WITH THESE FABULOUS OF TREES, UM, THAT MAYBE GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO WITHIN HERE, THERE'S SOME THEMES THAT ARE INCURRED THROUGHOUT THIS WHOLE, UH, IDEA, AND THAT IS ART IS EVERYWHERE.

UH, THERE ARE GREAT OPPORTUNITIES, UM, FOR OUTDOOR SCULPTURE AND ART, UM, SITTING, UH, IN THE FOREFRONT IN THIS BEAUTIFUL, UH, COURTYARD AREA, UH, THE WAY THE BUILDING IS SET UP, THE MAIN, UH, EAST-WEST ACCESS OF THE BUILDING ON THE NORTH SIDE IS GLAZED ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE INTENTION.

THERE AGAIN IS OPPORTUNITY FOR ART TO BE DISPLAYED IN THERE.

THAT'S NOT ONLY VISIBLE, VISIBLE FROM INSIDE THE BUILDING, BUT ALSO FROM OUTSIDE THE BUILDING.

UM, WE'RE LOOKING AT THE BOTTOM BASE OF THE BUILDING BEING BRICK OF THE SAME CHARACTER THAT IS CURRENTLY USED, UH, ON PARDON MAIN AND IS A BIT OF A NOD TO, UH, THE AND BUTLER BRICK BRICK PLANT THAT USED TO INHABIT THIS SITE.

AND THEN THE UPPER LEVEL, AGAIN, THINKING OF THE CANOPY AND THINKING OF SOMETHING THAT'S CRAFTED ON THE SITE, WE HAVE A METAL PERFORATED SCREEN, UH, THAT WRAPS A PORTION OF THE BUILDING.

THAT AGAIN, HELPS TIE IT TOGETHER, RELATES TO A MORE LEAFY, UH, ENVIRONMENT AND ALSO HELPS CONTROL SOLAR GAIN ON THE BUILDING.

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS A VIEW FROM THE WEST PARK, LOOKING BACK TOWARDS THE BUILDING.

AGAIN, WE HAVE AN ENTRY POINT ON THIS SIDE OF THE BUILDING AND, UH, I HAD TO GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO AGAIN, UM, YOU CAN SEE THERE A NUMBER ONE, THAT'S THE STUDIO CONNECTS BAY.

SO AGAIN, AN ARTIST HANGOUT SPACE THAT LOOKS OUT OVER THE PARK AND CONNECTS BACK TO THE PARK, UM, YOU KNOW, GOT OPPORTUNITIES AGAIN FOR ART EVERYWHERE.

WHAT'S SHOWN THERE AT NUMBER THREE IS A DIAGRAM.

UH, WE THINK THAT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR A PIECE OF OUTDOOR SCULPTURE, UH, THAT COULD HAPPEN THERE.

UM, THE SITE ALSO HAS A NUMBER OF, UM, RAIN GARDENS, UH, AND THIS IS ONE OF THEM YOU SEE IN THE FOREGROUND.

UH, AGAIN, IT'S AN ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR EDUCATION AND CONNECTION TO NATURE ON THIS SITE.

[00:45:02]

NEXT SLIDE.

THIS IS THE SOUTH ENTRY POINT.

UM, AGAIN, SIMILAR CHARACTER.

WHAT YOU'RE SEEING IS, UH, AGAIN, A RAIN GARDEN IN THE FOREFRONT, UH, BEYOND THAT IS THE SOUTH COURTYARD, WHICH AGAIN, CAN BE A PROGRAM SPACE FOR MANY PURPOSES AND ALSO PROVIDES AND FREE WAY TO THE YOUTH PROGRAMS. UH, THE SCREEN ELEMENT CARRIES ACROSS HERE, MAYBE GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

WE'LL KIND OF INTO A FEW OF THESE ELEMENTS.

UM, SO AS I SAID, THE SCHOOL DROP OFF HAPPENS ON THIS SIDE, UH, UP ON WHERE NUMBER TWO IS, UH, THAT IT'S OUR CERAMIC STUDIO.

SO WE WILL HAVE A KILLING YARD THAT SITS UP ON THAT UPPER DECK.

THAT'S SCREENED.

UH, AGAIN, THERE'S AN OPPORTUNITY TO KIND OF SEE ART BEING CREATED FROM THE EXTERIOR, UM, AND, UH, ITEM SEVEN, YOU SEE, THERE IS, UM, WHERE THE, UH, ROOF TERRORISTS WOULD BEGIN UP ON THAT UPPER LEVEL, UM, OPPORTUNITIES FOR INTEGRATED SIGNAGE IN THE BUILDING, UH, WHETHER IT'S, UH, ON THIS, UH, CONCRETE, LOW CONCRETE SCREEN SCREEN WALL, UM, OR, UH, OTHER OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN HERE, AGAIN, CONNECTION TO OUTDOOR SPACES WITH COURTYARDS, UH, REALLY TRYING TO CAPITALIZE ON ITS PLACEMENT, UH, IN THE PARK AND IN THE CITY, AND FINALLY A VIEW FROM THE WEST.

SO THIS IS, UM, AGAIN, CONNECTION BACK TOWARDS THE ZACH SCOTT THEATER, UM, GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO AGAIN, HERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES FOR POSTERS AND BANNERS, UM, AND, UH, NUMBER ONE, UM, POTENTIAL FOR A MURAL OR OTHER ART ELEMENTS ON THE BUILDING.

WE'VE GOT A LARGE BLOCK THAT IS THE THEATER BLOCK, UH, WHICH WILL NOT HAVE WINDOWS INHERENTLY.

SO THERE'S GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR, UH, ART HAPPENING THERE.

UM, ITEM FOUR, WE'VE GOT THE GALLERY ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

SO AT THE WEST END OF THE GALLERY, WE HAVE AN OUTDOOR SCULPTURE GALLERY, UH, THAT, UH, IS BEHIND THAT SCREEN ELEMENT THAT WILL BE VISIBLE, UH, FROM VISITORS AT THIS LOCATION.

UH, AND AGAIN, THE, OF ART EVERYWHERE.

SO AN OPPORTUNITIES FOR HEART AND THE GROUNDS EVERYWHERE YOU WALK AROUND THIS BUILDING, YOU EXPERIENCE ART.

THIS IS A VIEW FROM INSIDE THE HIVE, WHICH IS THE TWO STORY LOBBY SPACE.

SO MAYBE GO TO THE NEXT TIME.

SO IT IS INTENDED TO BE A VERY ACTIVE SOCIAL SPACE, AGAIN, THE CULTURAL LIVING ROOM OF AUSTIN.

UM, WE'RE CONTEMPLATING THAT THERE WILL BE A ACTIVE MAKER-SPACE WITHIN THIS LOBBY.

UM, CHILDREN OR ADULTS CAN COME IN HERE AND MAKE ART IN THE LOBBY.

UM, WE'VE GOT A THEATER, WHICH, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A LOT OF DRAMA INVOLVED IN JUST GOING TO THE THEATER AND WE WANT TO REALLY CELEBRATE THAT WITHIN THE LOBBY.

UH, THE, UH, AREA NOTED AS A FIVE UP ABOVE IS THIS REHEARSAL SPACE.

AGAIN, THE INTENTION THERE IS IT'S GOT SOME LEVEL OF TRANSPARENCY TO WHERE YOU CAN SEE ACTIVITY HAPPENING THERE, UM, BUT NOT COMPLETELY VISIBLE.

SO AGAIN, IT'S ACTIVE BY ACTIVATING THE, UM, THE LOBBY AREA.

UH, ITEM SEVEN IS THE SKYBRIDGE OF THE CUTS ACROSS THERE.

UH, AND AGAIN, OPPORTUNITY FOR ARTS, UH, EVERYWHERE WITHIN THIS FACILITY, UH, AS WELL AS OPPORTUNITIES FOR DONOR RECOGNITION, UM, EITHER, YOU KNOW, ON THE WALL TO THE LEFT.

NOW, DID IT THREE OR PERHAPS, UM, AT THE THEATER ENTRY ITSELF, THIS IS A VIEW DOWN THE EAST WEST AXIS OF THE BUILDING.

SO A LOT OF NORTH FACING GLASS, A LOT OF GREAT VIEW TOWARDS THE NORTH COURTYARD AND CONNECTION TO THE OUTDOOR SPACES AND BEYOND, UH, THAT'S THAT GALLERY SPACE THAT I WAS REFERRING TO THAT IS NOT ONLY VISIBLE FROM INSIDE, BUT OUTSIDE ON THE NORTH COURTYARD.

SO, UH, PEOPLE COMING UP TO THE BUILDING HAVE A VIEW IN WHETHER THEY COME IN OR NOT, THEY'RE EXPERIENCING ART.

UM, THEN THE NEXT SLIDE.

SO AGAIN, THAT'S KIND OF A COMMON THEME, ART EVERYWHERE.

UM, INDOOR OUTDOOR CONNECTION IS VERY IMPORTANT AND A CRAFTED SENSE TO THIS BUILDING.

IT ISN'T A BUILDING FOR THE

[00:50:01]

ARTS.

UM, SO ELEMENTS WITHIN HERE, YOU KNOW, WE WOULD LIKE VERY MUCH TO HAVE A HANDCRAFTED FEEL TO THEM, UH, AS OPPOSED TO, YOU KNOW, IF IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S FABRICATED OFF THE SHELF.

IT'S FINE.

I THINK WITH THAT, WE CAN OPEN IT UP TO QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR A BEAUTIFUL PRESENTATION.

UM, WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU LIKE TO GO FIRST? UH, YEAH.

I'D LIKE TO ASK ABOUT THE ALTERNATIVE EQUIVALENT COMPLIANCE ITEMS THAT YOU HAVE AND THEN HOW Y'ALL ADDRESS THOSE AND, YOU KNOW, A EQUALLY EFFECTIVE WAY, A DIFFERENT WAY, AND KIND OF WITHIN THAT, YOU KNOW, A DISCUSSION OF A PEDESTRIAN FOR YOU AND, OR BICYCLE SOMEONE THAT MAYBE IS RIGHT THE BUS ON LAMAR, KIND OF WHAT IS THERE, WHAT KIND OF PATH OPTIONS DO THEY HAVE THE BUILDING HAVE A SET APPROACH? SURE.

SO OBVIOUSLY THIS SITE HAS GOT SOME CHALLENGES TO IT IN TERMS OF, UM, COMPLYING WITH, UM, SUB CHAPTER YOUR REQUIREMENTS, UM, YOU KNOW, LOOKING AT HOW THIS LAYS OUT AGAIN, WE'RE, WE'RE CONCEIVING THAT THE PRIMARY ENTRANCE TO THE FACILITY IS OFF THE NORTH OFF OF RIVERSIDE.

UM, AGAIN, WE'RE CONSTRAINED BY THE UTILITIES AND BY THE HERITAGE TREES, WE DO WANT THIS FACILITY TO HAVE AS MUCH PEDESTRIAN VISIBILITY IN AND OUT AS POSSIBLE.

UH, WHICH AGAIN, WE'RE TRYING TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THE POTENTIAL FOR THESE BEAUTIFUL COURTYARDS WITH TREES AND, YOU KNOW, AS MUCH GLAZING AS POSSIBLE, PARTICULARLY ON THE NORTH SIDE, UM, TO HELP, UM, YOU KNOW, ACTIVATE THE SPACE AND ENHANCE THE PEDESTRIAN EXPERIENCE TO THE SOUTH, THE SOUTH COURTYARD, UH, AGAIN CAN BE A VERY ACTIVE ZONE, UM, VERY PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY.

UM, AND I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES THAT OCCUR WITH THAT, UH, AS WELL, UM, YOU KNOW, ACCESS FROM LAMAR.

UM, YOU KNOW, I THINK THERE ARE, THERE WILL BE ENHANCED SIDEWALKS, UM, THAT COME DOWN TO ME ROAD AND ALLOW OPPORTUNITY FOR ENTRANCE FROM THE SOUTH.

UH, WE HAVE ENTRANCE FROM THE WEST, UH, CUTTING THROUGH ZACH SCOTT, OBVIOUSLY FROM THE NORTH, UM, AND ALSO FROM THE WEST, UH, PEOPLE UTILIZING THE TRAIL SYSTEM, YOU KNOW, HAVE AN EASY ACCESS INTO THE FACILITY.

WE HAVE PROVIDED, UM, UH, BICYCLE LOCKERS AND SHOWERS, UH, WITHIN THE FACILITY.

AND THESE ARE PRIMARILY FOR EMPLOYEES, UM, AND THERE WILL BE OBVIOUSLY, UH, BICYCLE PARKING AND AROUND THE EXTERIOR OF THE BUILDING FOR VISITORS SEEMS LIKE RIVERSIDE DRIVE WOULD BE KIND OF THE OBVIOUS, YOU KNOW, ENTRANCE FOR ANYBODY RIDING THE BUS OR BICYCLE.

AND I'M WONDERING ABOUT EXISTING SIDEWALKS THAT MIGHT BE, THERE ARE FIVE PATH, OR IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT Y'ALL ARE DOING TO MODIFY OR ENHANCE THAT EXPERIENCE WHILE WE'RE SIDE DROUGHT EFFICIENT COME IN.

I THINK THE FOCUS OF OUR IMPROVEMENTS, ESPECIALLY ON THAT SIDE OF THE SITE IS RELATED TO THE HIKE AND BIKE TRAIL.

BUT I WILL SAY JUST OFF THE CORNER OF THIS SCREEN WHERE THE, UH, OLD SCHLOTZKY'S IS, THERE'S A PUD DEVELOPMENT THAT'S GOING UP.

AND, UM, I KNOW THAT THEY ARE COMPLETING SOME SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENTS ALONG THE TUMI FRONTAGE, AND THERE IS A CAP METRO BUS STOP RIGHT AT THAT, UM, SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THAT INTERSECTION.

SO THERE IS ALSO A DIRECT PEDESTRIAN ACCESS TO OUR SITE, YOU KNOW, ACROSS THE ZACK THEATER SITE.

I I'D LIKE TO CLEAN UP THOSE .

UM, SO I'LL JUST SAY THAT I REALLY APPRECIATE THE 20, 21, I THINK THE DIFFERENT SCENARIOS THAT YOU PRESENTED.

UM, I I'VE HEARD WITH THE LEG THAT THIS WAS THE ONE AND, UM, I APPRECIATE THE DIRECTION IT'S GONE IN, AND I THINK IT REALLY DOES THE BEST TO GIVE BACK TO THE OPEN SPACE AND CURRENT EXPERIENCE THAT, UM, AUSTINITES HAVE OF THE TRAIL IN THAT SPACE YET.

SO I THINK THAT I'M REALLY PLEASED TO SEE THAT THIS IS THE DIRECTION THAT AFFECTED.

UM, AND I'M REALLY LIKE THE, THE ARCHITECTURE OF LIKE DESIGN IT'S, IT'S REALLY BEAUTIFUL THAT ASIDE THE LAYERS, THE TEXTURES IT'S GOING TO BE, I THINK, A REALLY BEAUTIFUL BUILDING.

[00:55:01]

UM, AND THE WAY I THINK THAT THE, THE AXES THAT BROKE THROUGH THE BUILDING KIND OF DRAW PEOPLE IN, UM, WILL BE REALLY EXCITING.

BUT MY QUESTION MAYBE IS RELATED TO WHAT, WELL, IT MIGHT BE GOOD AGAIN, IS THAT FROM THE NORTH AND SOUTH, IT FEELS VERY MUCH LIKE THE APPROACH IS, UH, DESIGNED AROUND, UH, SOMEONE ARRIVING BY CAR.

UM, AND THEN THE WEST FEELS LIKE SOMEONE ARRIVE IN FRONT OF THE HIKING BIKE TRAIL IN SPACE.

AND SO I WAS JUST WONDERING IF THERE MIGHT BE SOME WAY TO INTEGRATE, UM, MORE OF A PEDESTRIAN OR CYCLIST EXPERIENCE THAT'S COMING FROM THE EAST MORE TO MEET, UM, THROUGH THOSE NORTH AND SOUTH CONNECTIONS, SOME KIND OF PATHWAY.

THAT'S MORE LIKE AT THE MOMENT, IT FEELS LIKE THE DROP-OFF IS VERY, IT'S GOING TO HAVE THAT SCALE, BUT IT FEELS LIKE IT'S LIKE A THREE LANE, THREE LANE ROAD RUNNING AROUND IN A CIRCLE FOR A DROP-OFF.

AND I DIDN'T DO THE STUDY ON THAT, BUT I JUST WANT WHERE IT MIGHT BE OVERSIZED OR IT MIGHT BENEFIT FROM A TITLE PROFILE.

UM, SO THAT YOU COULD MAYBE GIVE SOME MORE SPACE TO A BIT MORE OF LIKE MORE OF LIKE A PEDESTRIAN ENTRANCE, UM, SOME HERBICIDE DRIVES, UH, OR HOW DOES THAT, WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE SOLD.

YES.

YEAH.

OKAY.

YEAH.

UM, AND THEN, YEAH, NO, THAT'S REALLY, REALLY TRIES TO BE ACCENTURE.

EVERYTHING'S VERY BEAUTIFUL, BUT THE GENERAL APPROACH OFTEN SOUTHFIELDS ARE SHAVED AND CAR.

AND SO IF THERE MIGHT BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO CONDENSE THAT DOWN, GET A LITTLE BIT MORE BACK TO, LIKE, I THINK SO MANY PEOPLE FULLY ACCESSING THE SITE ON FOOT OR BY BIKE, JUST BECAUSE OF ITS OVER LOCATION.

SO, UH, MARBLE CELEBRATES THE SPACES, THAT APPROACH.

THAT'S ALL I GOT.

SO LET ME JUST COMMENT ONE THING ABOUT THAT.

I APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENT.

UM, SO AGAIN, WE'RE TRYING TO WORK AROUND A LOT OF LARGE EXISTING TREES, ONSIDE AND MINIMIZE IMPACTS TO THOSE, UH, WHICH IS GENERATING A LOT OF THE LAYOUT AND THE DROP-OFF AREAS.

I DID WANT TO POINT OUT, AND IT'S NOT INHERENTLY APPARENT ON THIS DIAGRAM, BUT JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THIS DIAGRAM, UM, THERE WAS A TRAIL YOU CAN SEE THAT IT WAS AROUND THE WEST EDGE OF THAT DROP-OFF.

SO THAT TRAIL ACTUALLY COMES ACROSS TIMMY ROAD AND CONNECTS ALL THE WAY DOWN, UH, TO BARTON SPRINGS ROAD.

UM, AGAIN, THERE'S A TRAIL SYSTEM THAT IS, IS ALREADY THERE THAT WE ARE CONNECTING TO AND TRYING TO MAINTAIN THAT CONNECTION WITH.

UM, I DID PICK UP ON THAT AND I APPRECIATE THAT.

UM, AND I APPRECIATE THE WAY YOU ARE WORKING AROUND SOME FAIRLY DIFFICULT SURETY STAFF.

UM, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE WIDTH OF YOUR DROP-OFFS LIKE ROAD PROFILE? DO YOU THINK YOU'D GET THAT COULDN'T GET IN TIGHTER? SO WE HAVE IT, IT IS FAIRLY TIGHT AS WE COME AROUND THE OVAL.

UM, WE TRIED TO MINIMIZE THAT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, UH, JUST TO ACCOMMODATE A SINGLE CAR, UH, A PORTION OF THIS IS OR FIRE ACCESS LANE.

SO IT HAS TO BE A CERTAIN WIDTH.

UM, SO BASICALLY IT'S A HAMMERHEAD THAT COMES UP, UM, ESSENTIALLY TO WHERE THAT TREE LINE IS.

UM, AND THEN AT THAT POINT IT KIND OF NECKS DOWN TO A MORE NARROW PARK ROAD.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I'VE GOT TO FIRE EXPIRE TURNED AROUND LAST CLOSE MATES THAT TRICKY.

I'VE GOT A QUESTION.

I JUST WANT TO DO A KIND OF VERIFY THAT THE ASSUMPTION IS THAT PEOPLE WILL COME BY BUS AND WE'D LIKE TO THINK THAT A SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WILL COME BY BUS FOR THEM.

THEY WOULD, UH, GET OFF AT A STOP AT, I GUESS, TO AMAR AND TO ME ROAD AND THEN WALK ACROSS, WALK DOWN TO ME AND ACCESS TO SAFETY, SUICIDAL THE IDEA.

OKAY.

THAT'S CORRECT.

AND I'LL JUMP TO THIS SLIDE, WHICH MIGHT SHOW IT A LITTLE BIT BETTER.

UM, THERE ARE SOME PLANS, SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENTS ON THE NORTH SIDE OF, TO MEET

[01:00:01]

HERE AND THAT WOULD COMPLETE A CONTINUOUS SIDEWALK CONNECTION, UM, TO THE SOUTH ENTRY OF THE BUILDING.

VERY GOOD COMFORT.

I THINK THAT IS ROBERT.

YOU WANT TO DO SOME QUICK SCALING HERE? I SORRY ABOUT THAT.

YES.

ABOUT ABOUT 300 YARDS OR SO.

THAT'S GREAT.

GREAT.

OKAY.

WELL, YEAH.

OKAY.

I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS, UM, REGARDING WHETHER, AND I DON'T MEAN TO BE RUDE, BUT I DON'T MEAN TO SOUND RUDE, BUT WHETHER OR NOT THE PROJECT IS BAKED OR NOT, I GUESS WHERE I'M GOING WITH THIS IS, UM, THE 130 PARKING SPACES.

WHAT'S THE CAPACITY OF THIS BUILDING.

I'M NOT ADVOCATING FOR MORE PARKING AND JUST, THERE'S A BUSINESS.

THERE'S AN ENTIRE THOUGHT PROCESS I'M GOING WITH HERE, BUT WHAT'S THE CAPACITY OF THIS BUILDING.

SO I WILL, I WILL SAY THAT, UM, THE PARKING NUMBERS, SO WE HAVE A TRAFFIC CONSULTANT, UH, ON OUR TEAM AND WE HAVE STUDIED, UH, PARKING REQUIREMENTS.

AGAIN, THIS FACILITY IS SERVING THE BACK ITSELF.

IT'S SERVING PART, IT'S SERVING ZACH SCOTT AND IT'S SERVING THE PARK, UH, AND THE BALL FIELDS.

AND WE HAVE RUN THROUGH ANALYSIS OF THOSE ELEMENTS IN THE DEMANDS ON THOSE ELEMENTS AND KIND OF APPLIED A FILTER TO THAT TRAFFIC, UM, DEMAND MANAGEMENT STRATEGY, UH, TO DEVELOP A RECOMMENDED NUMBER OF PARKING SPACES FOR THE SITE.

AND THAT IS PREDICATED ON, YOU KNOW, NOT EVERYBODY IS DRIVING TO THE SITE, IT'S PREDICATED ON, UH, MASS TRANSIT, UH, BICYCLE, PEDESTRIAN, UH, ACCESS TO THE SITE.

GOT IT.

I APPRECIATE THAT.

BUT WHAT'S THE CAPACITY OF THE BUILDING, THE OCCUPANT LOAD IN THE BUILDING.

YEAH, EXACTLY.

YOU GOT TO BE RIGHT.

SO THAT, THAT CAN VARY DEPENDING ON WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE BUILDING, UH, AT VARIOUS TIMES, UM, WHETHER THERE'S, UM, A THEATER EVENT THAT'S GOING ON, THE DECK HAS NUMEROUS EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

UM, UH, YOU KNOW, I, I, AND THEN IT VARIES QUITE A BIT AND WE'D HAVE TO PROBABLY PULL UP THE, UM, ANALYSIS TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION MORE ACCURATELY.

GOTCHA.

SO WHERE I'M GOING WITH THIS, CAUSE I WAS READING THROUGH SOME BEAT SOME OF THE BACKUP MATERIAL FROM OTHER STUDIES, NAMELY A MEMO FROM THE CITY MANAGER, UH, IN JULY OF 2022.

AND THEY'RE FOLLOWING ME ON THIS LOGIC HERE, UM, THAT MEMO STATES THAT THE PARKING GARAGE, THE PARK, THE UNDERGROUND PARKING STRUCTURE ITSELF, WHICH I APPLAUD ON THE GARAGE.

I LOVE THE FACT THE PARKING IS UNDERGROUND, UH, COULD COST ANYWHERE BETWEEN 12 TO $15 MILLION.

UM, IF YOU DO JUST ROUGH NUMBERS REAL QUICK, THAT'S $115,000 A PARKING SPOT AT 130 SPACES, WE DON'T EVEN PAY THAT MUCH FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

UM, SO I GUESS FROM GOING WITH THIS, IS THAT THAT'S, IT, IT COULD, THE MEMO CONTINUES TO SAY THE TOTAL BUDGET FOR THIS PROJECT IS $28 MILLION.

ONCE AGAIN, VERY CONCERNING BECAUSE YOU'RE ESSENTIALLY PUTTING HALF OF THE BUILDING COST, UM, IN PARKING THE LONG AND SHORT OF WHAT I'M TRYING TO GET, GET TO HERE IS, UM, HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR THIS THING IF WE ONLY HAVE $28 MILLION? AND IS THERE A WAY THAT WE CAN POTENTIALLY MONETIZE THE PARKING LOT TO GET MORE BUILDINGS, RIGHT? CAN WE FINANCE THE PARK RESTRUCTURED? YOU SAID THAT IT'S GOING TO BE USED FOR PAUL FIELDS FOR THE ZACK THEATER FOR THESE PURPOSES, AND POTENTIALLY, MAYBE FOR THINGS THAT HAPPENED IN ZILKER PARK, ARE WE SHORTCHANGING OURSELVES, UM, POTENTIALLY MORE ART SPACE AND MORE DOHERTY ARTS CENTER OR $115,000 PER SPACE PARKING GARAGE? YEAH, I CAN, I CAN ADDRESS PART OF THAT AND I APPRECIATE WHERE IT'S COMING FROM, BECAUSE I THINK FROM THE START AND THROUGH ALL THE COUNCIL DIRECTION, WE'VE HEARD THE INTENT WHERE OUR PROJECT AND OUR PROJECT TEAM IS ON BOARD IS TO MAXIMIZE THE AMOUNT OF PARKS, BOND DOLLARS THAT ARE DELIVERING AND PARKS FACILITY.

AND IT'S THROUGH THIS COUNCIL PROCESS THAT WE WERE DIRECTED TO BUILD THIS UNDERGROUND GARAGE.

THE NUMBERS THAT YOU CITED WERE BASED ON OUR SCHEMATIC DESIGN SET, WHICH HAD A LARGER GARAGE CAPACITY, WHICH HAS SINCE BEEN PARED DOWN.

UM, BUT UNDERGROUND

[01:05:01]

PARKING IS, IS COSTLY.

AND SO WE'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN CONVERSATIONS WITH THE TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT AND THE BUDGET OFFICE TO TALK ABOUT A MODEL THAT COULD POSSIBLY, YOU KNOW, A REVENUE BASED MODEL THAT COULD FUND THE GARAGE THROUGH AN ENTERPRISE, UM, PROGRAM AT THE AUSTIN TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT.

AND THOSE CONVERSATIONS CONTINUE.

YOU KNOW, OUR INTENT IS TO USE THE PARKS BOND DOLLARS TO DELIVER THE DOOR TO THE ARTS FACILITY.

AND WE KNOW THAT THIS UNDERGROUND PARKING ELEMENT OF THE PROJECT IS THE UNFUNDED ELEMENT AT THIS TIME.

SO THAT IS WHAT WAS COMMUNICATED IN THE MEMO.

AND IT'S, IT'S BEEN A CATALYST FOR SOME ADDITIONAL CONVERSATION WITH, WITH, UM, CITY LEADERSHIP AND THE BUDGET OFFICE TO SEEK AN ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION THERE.

SO, SO LET ME GET THIS AND MADE THE STRAIGHT.

SO THE PARKING GARAGE CURRENTLY IS UNFUNDED, BUT WE'RE BUILDING OUR DOHERTY, OUR ET CETERA, ON TOP OF THE PARKING GARAGE.

THAT'S RIGHT.

I MEAN, WE HAVE TO CONTINUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE PROCESS SO WE CAN GET ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS ABOUT COSTS AND, AND, YOU KNOW, WE RECOGNIZE THERE'S A CHALLENGE THERE, BUT, UM, OH, THIS IS A HUGE CHALLENGE.

YOU CAN'T BUILD ON SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN'T, IF IT'S NOT THERE.

SO THAT'S, AND LIKE I SAID, I WASN'T, I'M NOT TRYING TO BE RUDE WITH THIS, BUT I THINK THIS IS THIS, THIS PROJECT ISN'T, ISN'T FULLY BAKED YET.

RIGHT.

AND I THINK THAT THERE'S, THERE'S POSSIBLY A MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL, MUCH MORE ROBUST PROJECT.

ONCE WE DO FIGURE OUT THE FUNDING SOURCE FOR THAT, FOR THE PARKING GARAGE, POTENTIALLY ANYWHERE BETWEEN 12 AND $15 MILLION WORTH OF FOR PROJECT.

I THINK THAT MAXIMIZES THE USE OF PUBLIC CLEANSE.

YEAH.

YOUR, YOUR POINT IS WELL-TAKEN.

AND I WILL SAY, YOU KNOW, THE PROJECT TEAM IS APPROACHING THIS NOW AS IF THE, THE $28 MILLION PROJECT BUDGET THAT WAS AWARDED THROUGH THE BOND IS DELIVERING THE DOOR TO YARDS FACILITY.

OUR DEPARTMENT IS ACTIVELY SEEKING ALTERNATIVE FUNDING TO DELIVER THE GARAGE THAT'S ASSOCIATED WITH IT.

YEAH.

I KNOW, LIKE I SAID, I, I DON'T THINK IT'S FULLY BAKED YET.

THAT'S, THAT'S, THAT'S MY SENSE.

I MEAN, YOU CAN'T GO ON SOMEBODY, YOU DON'T, YOU DON'T HAVE.

I THINK WHEN WE DO FIGURE OUT THE FUNDING SOURCE AND FIGURE OUT HOW, YOU KNOW, THE REST OF THOSE DOLLARS CAN BE SPENT FOR A BIGGER, MORE BEAUTIFUL AUTHORITY ART SPACE, I THINK YOU'LL PROBABLY BE COMING BACK TO US.

I'D LIKE TO ASK A CLARIFYING QUESTION.

WHAT HAPPENS WITH THIS PROCESS OF BRINGING CONVICTION IT'S UM, SHE CANNOT GET FUNDING FOR THAT'S A VERY GOOD QUESTION.

SO THE ENTIRE BUILDING IS BUILT ABOVE THE PARKING GARAGE.

SO IF THERE'S NO PARKING GARAGE, IF THEY CAN'T FIND THE PARKING LOT AS THEY CAN'T BUILD A BUILDING, THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING IS PREMATURE.

I THINK WE NEED TO REALLY FIGURE OUT HOW TO ACTUALLY, UM, THE PARKING GARAGE, UM, WHETHER IT'S TO ENTERPRISE, WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE.

AND ONCE
