A local environmental group says it will oppose the project — dubbed Tecoma — by Austin-based developer Stratus Properties Inc., opening a new front in a battle that dates to 1990 when the land was part of a larger swath that became a touchstone for some of Austin’s best-known environmental debates.
The Tecoma project is planned for 650 acres on the north side of Southwest Parkway, across from Advanced Micro Devices Inc.’s campus. Tecoma Circle — an extension of William Cannon Drive — is being paved on the site.
How the Tecoma project’s retail and mixed-use space compares with other Austin-area developments:
Tecoma: Plans 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use commercial space
Southpark Meadows: 1.6 million square feet of mixed-use commercial space
Barton Creek Square: 1.4 million square feet
Hill Country Galleria: 1.28 million square feet of mixed-use commercial space
Lakeline Mall: 1.1 million square feet
