Cityline Companies LLC is planing to develop CityLine at MLK Station, a mixed-use development in East Austin. The proposed project would be located at the northeast corner of MLK Jr. Blvd. and Alexander Avenue, directly across the street from Capital Metro’s MLK Jr. MetroRail station. The project proposes to provide 134,000 SF of office space, 11,000 SF ground-floor retail, and 36,000 SF multi-story residential.

The site is zoned TOD (Transit Oriented Development), which means it is subject to the regulating plan for the MLK Station area. According to the City of Austin, Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is an intentional mixing of land use and transit through the creation of compact, walkable, mixed-use communities within walking distance of a transit stop or station.

Project team members include Omaha-based Alley Poyner Macchietto Architecture and Austin-based landscape architect dwg.. JLL is marketing the office space for lease and the project has a website that contains the renderings below:

A site development permit has not yet been obtained for this project, and there is currently no word on a potential construction start date. The project’s marketing materials promise a mid-2017 delivery.
