Central Health is redeveloping our Downtown Property – the former Brackenridge Campus – to provide stable, near-term revenue to fund our mission – providing access to health care for people with low income in Travis County, including underserved areas to the east.
Central Health is redeveloping its downtown property – the former University Medical Center Brackenridge – to generate revenue to pay for health care for Travis County residents with low income.
To kick off the development of two blocks on Central Health’s downtown property, demolition began on February 2020. One block has been leased, and Central Health will receive more than $460 million over the life of the 99-year ground lease. So far, the redevelopment has generated $2.7 million for health care.
Central Health and the City of Austin continue to negotiate and resolve issues related to Red River Street’s realignment. A hearing on Central Health’s requested Zoning Overlay was postponed until July 2020.
