Burnet Marketplace, a mixed use project planned for a 3.9 acre site in north Austin, brings a renewed energy to a section of the bustling North Burnet Road corridor. 328 apartments, including several ground-floor live-work units, combine with over 10,000 GSF of retail and restaurant space and an intimate open-air farmers market to create a vibrant mixed-use atmosphere. Sandwiched between Burnet Road and Burnet Lane to the east, 4-stories of wood-framed apartments top a cast-in-place concrete retail podium to create a strong presence along Burnet Road, while stepping down to four stories at-grade along the east side of the site to address the scale of the neighboring residential neighborhood. Structured parking accommodates residential and retail tenants and visitors. Two private courtyards include a sparkling pool in one and a quiet zen-like atmosphere with rain gardens in the other for the residents to enjoy. The project met the Austin Energy Green Building Program at a 2-Star level.
