Seaholm Waterfront Study

The Seaholm Waterfront Programming and Implementation Study is a collaborative planning effort of The Trail Foundation, Austin Parks Foundation and Austin Parks and Recreation Department. The study will serve as a roadmap for future public use and recreation at the Seaholm Waterfront, which includes the historic Seaholm Intake structure and surrounding three acres of parkland along Lady Bird Lake.

Goals:

  • Develop a long-range vision for the project with particular focus on the programming, operational and financial model to develop a world class facility and a public asset
  • Identify a phased approach to the project so that work can begin in the near future and be built out in the coming years

The effort will include:

  • Inventory and analysis of the physical attributes of the site along with all completed work to date on site conducted by PARD, with specific consideration paid to the historic integrity of the building
  • Develop precedent studies of similar, national projects
  • Conduct stakeholder meetings and public open houses to determine the best recreation and public use for the site and building based on public input
  • Develop construction cost models to determine overall project costs and likely phasing opportunities
  • Investigate partnerships for programming, operations and the management of the facilities
