Pflugerville (Travis County) — An Austin nonprofit organization will construct a retail thrift store, an architectural barrier project report registered with a state regulatory agency.
Habitat for Humanity is proposing to develop the project under the name Habitat for Humanity – Restore at Gattis Crossing.
The project will involve building a 34,603 square foot retail store with a storage area and support spaces.
Habitat Restores are independently owned reuse stores and donation centers that sell used furniture, appliances, home goods, building materials and more.
The estimated cost of the project is $10 million, according to a report filed Sept. 15 with the Texas Department of Licensing & Regulation.
Construction is anticipated to begin April 1, 2023 and be completed by May 31, 2024.
The development will be located at 21315 County Road 138 2 in the northeast portion of the city.
Austin-based Method Architecture is on board the project.
