Austinville North - Amy's Ice Cream, etc.
I remember from a year or so ago that the north Austinville seemed like a dead deal. I always attibuted it to the bad mojo from the broken toilet that remained on the slab long after the original demo of the building.
The other day, I noticed that the toilet was gone, and that an Amy's truck was again parked on the slab. Today, I noticed that big machines were demo'ing the concrete slab there.
I find no news of this on the net. Anyone hear anything?
For the last few years, there has been a lawsuit pending between the owner of the property and a neighboring property regarding runoff of storm water and, as a result of that runoff, permitting from the City of Austin. That's what held up construction. I believe that lawsuit is now resolved.
my northwestern brethren will be happy to hear that austinville north is on.
according to the community impact newspaper, it will open by summer's end.
it will be located at 13265 research, and feature amy's ice cream along with a mix of locally owned dining and retail options.
steve simmons (mr. amy's ice cream) will also oversee a remodeling project at 13219 research.
this will be an expansion of 6000 sq. ft., with a restaurant and 2 retailers added.
michael hsu office of architecture will be designing both projects, and plan to include vehicular and pedestrian paths, plus maximize glass so people can see what's going on inside.
