This new 400-acre mixed-us site is located on the southwest side of Austin, near the airport, and will be connected by light rail to the airport and downtown Austin. Hitchcock Design Group was engaged to create a design that would incorporate the natural environment of the project site and connect the natural systems with newly-planned social activities to give the development an urban environment despite its distance from the existing city center. The new master plan includes space for retail, residential living, hospitality, corporate and medical offices, light industrial facilities, arts, and entertainment.

“Their work comes with a level of empathy with the user to say ‘it’s more than plants. How can this be an uplifting space? How can this invigorate someone?’ That’s different. That’s unique.”
“They work in a very collaborative manner in discussions and presentations. They make sure you fully understand it. If there are any questions at all, they can help you with it.”
“What keeps coming back to me is their willingness, their ability, and their responsiveness to help manage the situation at hand.”
“One of Hitchcock’s strengths is the amount of work they put in when they’re getting to know a community. They show you they really understand the issues your community is considering. They’re very thorough in their approach. It’s clear they’ve done their homework.”
“Hitchcock thinks beyond straight lines and 90-degree angles.”
“Hitchcock goes out of their way to make sure they’re responsive, helpful, and doing things that aren’t necessarily their responsibility. They’re just all-around quality. Any project that I do going forward they will always, always be included in my RFP, whether it’s city or suburban.”
“They’ve earned our trust. They listen to us and come back with solutions that really meet our needs. They let you start to dream …”
“With Hitchcock, I felt like they really went above and beyond, and they’re extremely responsive. They take more of a leadership role, which is helpful, especially with a complicated project.”
“Some architects will just say ‘how dare you!’ but Hitchcock encourages changes. Relationships and creativity is what it boils down to—it’s why I like them the best and what sets them apart from others.”
“Communication, creativity, meeting timeliness, meeting institutional expectations; we’re not an easy client. Hitchcock goes out of their way to work with us.”
