DRAFT | October 19, 2020 DRAFT | October 19, 2020 DRAFT | October 19, 2020 South Central Waterfront 2020 South Central Waterfront Vision Implementation Update DRAFT | October 19, 2020 DRAFT | October 19, 2020 Table of Contents 3 Introduction Physical Framework Financial Framework 12 26 38 48 City Leadership : Implementation Priorities Appendices DRAFT | October 19, 2020 DRAFT | October 19, 2020 Introduction1The SCW District today is a patchwork of 34 private properties, and 1 City-owned property (OTC), encompassing 97 acres in properties (118 acres w/ ROW included). The district is characterized by a Lack of connectivity - Could drop 33 downtown blocks in district of superblocks and surface parking. It is Pedestrian-hostile, with a limited walking grid, narrow sidewalks, few street trees, and fewer streetscape amenities.Scarcity of Greenery - ~20% of district is surface parking. Sparse tree canopy. Lack of open space. No Affordable Housing guaranteed. As a response, the now-retired Waterfront Planning Advisory Board, with staff support from the Urban Design Division, began initial planning and community outreach in 2012. Building on this early effort, The City Council passed a resolution in 2013 to create an official small area plan.Capping this four-year effort, the South Central Waterfront Vision Framework Plan (SCW Plan) was adopted by Council in June 2016. The SCW Plan established a vision to guide redevelopment in this district over the next 20 years. The adopted SCW Plan is based on a district-wide, public/private partnership model that will transform the district by: ● ● ● ● Retrofitting 17 acres of new connected parks, trails, plazas, and open spaces across a patchwork of 34 private properties. Adding over 2 miles of refurbished or new streetscapes, expand the street grid, and promote transportation options to create a lively, walkable and transit-friendly district. Enhancing connections and open spaces to and along the waterfront. Incentivizing affordable housing to ultimately equal 20% of the district’s new residential units. WHAT IS IN THIS UPDATE DRAFT | October 19, 2020 DRAFT | October 19, 2020 ● ● ● ● In order to achieve the Vision, the 2016 SCW Plan set up three “frameworks” to guide future policy, programs, redevelopments, and public and private investments. These three frameworks - Physical Framework; Financial Framework; City Leadership Framework - provide clear directions while also offering flexibility to adapt to and incorporate future best practices, changing financial conditions in the public and private sector, and …

Existing streets are upgraded to Austin’s highest standard for complete streets and retrofitted with green infrastructure and utilities that facilitate more sustainable development. paired with quality urban design and an interconnected network of public spaces, streets, lakeside trails and parks. The elements addressed in the physical framework - circulation and connectivity, open space, sustainability and green infrastructure, and urban design - exist and function simultaneously as an integrated whole. However in this chapter, they are broken down into distinct elements to better explain how each component works, and which public and private entities might lead their respective implementation. 2016 SCW Physical Framework Plan consists of: Transportation Network (City led roadway catalysts, Developer Led Streets, City Led Improvements of Existing Streets) ● Open Spaces (Expanded Waterfront park and trail connections, City led catalyst open spaces Urban Design guidelines for incremental development ● ● 2016 SCW PHYSICAL FRAMEWORK KEY PLACEMAKING OPPORTUNITIES DRAFT | October 19, 2020 DRAFT | October 19, 2020 ● ● ● 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 2016 SCW Physical Framework Plan consists of: Transportation Network (City led roadway catalysts, Developer Led Streets, City Led Improvements of Existing Streets) Open Spaces (Expanded Waterfront park and trail connections, City led catalyst open spaces Urban Design guidelines for incremental development The Physical Framework identifies an interconnected network of public realm improvements in this district starting with: The expansion of waterfront open space on the Statesman site Adding new green streets, parks, plazas and enhancing existing natural areas along Bouldin Creek Completing the street network for a more pedestrian-oriented district Improving existing streets to support a multimodal transportation network.

The SCW Vision Framework Plan proposes an implementation approach that builds upon the following tenets: ● ● ● A shared vision: Buy in on shared vision for the area among key stakeholders: property owners, neighborhoods, the City, vested interest groups (e.g., affordable housing providers, open space entities). This includes the recognition that enhanced entitlements will be required to enable more robust private development that then provides a primary resource base for public realm and public purpose improvements, and expansion of affordable housing opportunities. Partnerships: The City envisions partnerships with developers to help pay for public realm improvements. This includes financial incentives and binding development agreements between City and property owners/developers about which parties are responsible for providing which public realm improvements. Phased Implementation: The City anticipates that improvements will be built in phases based on which owners/ developers are prepared to redevelop as well as the City’s ability to craft mutually beneficial development agreements. The potential implementation strategy could give preference for public resources to those property owners/developers prepared to move forward. THE SCW FINANCIAL FRAMEWORK UPDATE DRAFT | October 19, 2020 DRAFT | October 19, 2020 This section lays out the SCW District’s project costs and discusses a variety of public and private revenue streams that could help pay for the District’s project costs and projected buildout. ● District Project Costs: SCW FINANCIAL CALCULATOR The SCW FInancial Calculator is an Excel-based parcel-by-parcel proforma modeling tool that allows planners and policy and decision makers to evaluate multiple policy choices and their economic impacts. The SCW Plan’s Financial Framework provides a path to ensure that the SCW Vision can actually be funded and achieved. The financial analysis looks to how the impending wave of potential redevelopment can be leveraged for value capture and how public and private investments can be coordinated to realize the public realm improvements and affordable housing goals. The 2020 Update of the SCW Financial …
