Central Health, a special-purpose taxing entity devoted to providing access to quality health care for qualified Travis County, Texas residents, is seeking proposals from prospective developers interested in a mixed-use development opportunity on a multi-block site located in the northeast corner of Downtown Austin. Central Health envisions this as a “Master Developer” opportunity, through which Central Health would partner with one or more entities to develop the multi-block property in a coordinated manner – including infrastructure and buildings.
The site, known as the Central Health Brackenridge Campus, is owned by Central Health, and has been occupied by medical buildings including the Brackenridge Hospital, Clinical Education Center, and a medical office building, plus parking structures and other related support facilities. The hospital and some of the related support functions are being replaced by a new teaching hospital currently under construction—Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas—immediately north of the site. As a result, Central Health’s 14.3 acres will be made available for redevelopment. Central Health has worked extensively with consultants, stakeholders and the community to prepare a Master Plan to inform development opportunities on the site. More information can be found at http://www.centralhealthcampus.net/
The vision for this site includes a high-density, mixed-use development oriented to pedestrian-friendly streets, a public market building and public spaces. Uses on the site may include housing, office, hotel, and retail space, as well as opportunities for additional health-related uses including technological innovation.
