The following was posted to the Allandale listserv today. It’s from Lee Nichols, a writer for the Austin Chronicle and resident of the Crestiview neighborhood. In addition to talking about the major redevelopment planned for the Huntsmen Chemical property (Lamar and Airport),  adjacent to the future commuter rail station, Lee provides more information about development plans for Northcross Mall. It’s a good preview of things coming to a central city neighborhood near you.

"Howdy neighbors. My article on the developments going up at both ends of
the ‘hood is in the Chronicle today. If you don’t want to wait for the
paper version, it’s already online here: Crestview at Crossroads. Feedback,
positive or negative, is welcome — especially to our letters to the editor
section as well as here.    

Lee"
