There is a good article regarding vertical mixed use development in today’s Austin American-Statesman, "Neighborhoods oppose three Austin projects that would boost density." One of the projects mentioned is just down the road on Koenig. The article is particularly relevant as a team of ANA representatives will be going before the Planning Commission tonight to argue against the VMU project on Burnet Rd where Antique Marketplace is. In general, neighborhoods don’t appear to be against the idea of VMU but the projects being proposed by developers are considered too dense for the infrastructure to support. In Allandale’s case, ANA had already supported the mixed use development originally proposed by Carr Development two years ago when it included owner-occupied units at almost half the density that is now being proposed by Ardent Properties.
