Austin (Travis County)–The city is reviewing a request to amend land uses in a far North Austin corporate park to include a large apartment complex, shopping center and hotel.
Florida-based Accesso Partners LLC plans a second round of development at 7700 Parmer at 7700 W. Parmer Lane, which is near the upcoming Apple campus.
The developer has asked the city to amend its planned development agreement (PDA) for the 129-acre corporate park to accommodate a conversion of existing surface parking and additional square footage and land uses.
Their proposal is to construct approximately 1,800 apartments, 80,000 squarew feet of retail space, and a 340-room hotel.
