The so-called “TacoPUD” project at 211 South Lamar got the green light from City Council today. The third reading of the ordinance that rezones the property containing a Taco Cabana restaurant was rezoned to planned unit development (PUD) district zoning.
Neighborhood groups opposed the project due to its height, and argued that views of the lake would be obscured by the building. When complete, the project will be about 96 feet tall, which is 36 feet taller than what previous zoning would allow.
Twitter users following the development’s journey through the approval process used the hashtag #TacoPUD, and those tweets continued today after the Council approved the ordinance:

Do you think this development will block views of Town Lake? Will more density in this location be a good thing? Leave your comments below!
