The Saltillo Development is a six-block, 10-acre site that is home to a mixed-use community, including approximately 800 apartments, of which at least 18 percent will be categorized as affordable; 110,000 square feet of retail, anchored by a Whole Foods; an office building; and more than 1.4 acres of open space with public art.
In addition to MetroRail and MetroBus service continuing to provide service directly to the Saltillo Development (through Routes 4, 17 and 322), the development features pedestrian paseos, underground and structured parking, electric vehicle stations, a B-cycle station, wide sidewalks, locally designed bike racks, and the extensions of the Lance Armstrong Bikeway and San Marcos Street.
For the latest information, including construction updates, please visit the development's website.
Separate from the development, CapMetro has also reached an agreement with Austin Parks & Recreation to assume responsibility for Plaza Saltillo itself. Upkeep and revitalization of Plaza Saltillo is a priority for us, and we have:
- Refurbished the fountain
- Painted the iron gates and the stucco of the buildings
- Upgraded the plaza's lighting
Plans now call for CapMetro to go back to the neighborhood and surrounding community to discover how Plaza Saltillo can best serve its neighbors. The public engagement will be extensive, and the planning community-led.
