$1 Billion Domain-style Development to Reshape South Austin Shopping Center

South Austin is poised to get a Domain-like, mixed-use development with as much as 3 million square feet of office, residential, and retail space. Commercial real estate developer and manager Barshop & Oles Co. unveiled a proposed redevelopment on December 3 of its Brodie Oaks Shopping Center, located at South Capital of Texas Highway and South Lamar Boulevard. The estimated $1 billion project eventually could feature 1,600 apartments and condos, 1.1 million square feet of offices, 450 hotel rooms, and 140,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Currently, Brodie Oaks, at 4021 S. Capital of Texas Hwy., comprises 365,000 square feet of retail and office space on a 38-acre site. The new project’s 3 million square feet would represent almost 10 times more space than the current square footage. By comparison, the adjoining Domain and Domain Northside mixed-use developments in North Austin are about 1.8 million square feet. As part of the redo of the Brodie Oaks site, Barshop & Oles envisions transforming 13.7 acres of parking lots and building areas into green space. A new trailhead and public access area would connect the site to the neighboring Barton Springs Greenbelt, and the revamped site itself would provide almost one mile of trails and nearly 1.9 miles of pedestrian walkways and bike paths.
