A vertical mixed use building contains a mix of residential and commercial uses. In an effort to encourage vertical mixed use buildings, the City Council established a vertical mixed use (VMU) overlay district.
WHY VERTICAL MIXED USE BUILDINGS? Encourages density on commercial corridors with higher levels of transit service Focused on the creation of a high quality pedestrian and transit-supportive environment Consistent with Envision Central Texas (ECT) Preferred Scenario Provides a more sustainable development pattern WHAT ARE THE STANDARDS FOR A BUILDING? Must have a mix of uses Must have pedestrian-oriented spaces on the ground floor Must contain residential dwelling units Possibility for relaxed site development standards—some of which require a residential affordability component
The meeting will focus on South Austin and will give community members the opportunity to ask questions of City staff about the VMU program, compatibility, and Project Connect.
The meeting will be held via Zoom on May 16th from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. Those who RSVP will receive the Zoom link to access Monday’s meeting.
