Capitol Metro broke ground this week for the new Broadmoor Station, to be located inside the future 66-acre Uptown ATX development in North Austin. The $3 billion dollar mixed-use development is near The Domain.
The Red Line station, located at 11501 Burnet Road, will have two double-length covered platforms along with 400 shared parking spaces. The station is expected to open in early 2024. CapMetro said that the new station will allow access to employment centers, retailers and entertainment venues in the Domain and Uptown ATX area.
The $24 million Broadmoor Station is a public-private partnership, with both Capital Metro and Brandywine Realty Trust. In a press release from the developer, the community will "introduce nearly 7 million square feet of workspace, multi-family, retail, hospitality, and a new Capital Metro Rail Station." Construction on phase one, a $328 million mixed-use project called One Uptown, has begun.
Brandywine CEO Jerry Sweeney said “access to public transit provides accessibility to jobs [and] amenities, and drives healthy sustainable environments. Public transit promotes community building [and] economic equality and is a huge boost to a city's mobility and productivity. This rail station expands access by providing safe, equitable, reliable transportation connecting people from all through this region into a reimagined North Austin community.”
This past December CapMetro showed off design plans for a new McKalla Station adjacent to the Q2 Stadium.
