TBG wins two ABJ 2024 Commercial Real Estate Awards


We’re thrilled to share two TBG projects received recognition in this year’s Austin Business Journal Commercial Real Estate Awards.

Project of the Year: Travis County Courts Facility

Much more than a courthouse, this new downtown facility was envisioned as an iconic, publicly accessible civic venue that safely accommodates a wide variety of users and provides connections to nature in the city. Located on a full city block, the facility provides multipurpose public space for recreation as well as dining and gathering, in addition to a grand, elevated arrival at 17th and Guadalupe. The landscape design accommodates a roughly 22-foot grade change across the site as well as relocating and transplanting an existing heritage live oak on 17th Street. The scope includes a series of roof plazas and private terraces for judges, rain gardens at grade and on terraces, and harvesting of air-conditioning condensate for water features.

Best New Office Building: T3 Eastside

A mixed-use T3 (Transit, Timber, Technology) construction development, which features a heavy timber office that redefines the standard for the modern, creative office space, as well as a boutique residential experience. Featuring 15 loft-style units, the structure was constructed using sustainably sourced wood and aims for LEED Gold certification. Paying homage to the industrial Plaza Saltillo transit-oriented development, the design incorporates brick, steel and wood to create a sense of place and will feature large wood-block benches along the streetscape to compliment the building and celebrate the sustainable wood construction. Additionally, AC condensate is captured to irrigate planting – conserving water while also beautifying raingardens which treat stormwater runoff.
