Two TBG Projects Win Commercial Real Estate Awards
Austin’s 2019 Commercial Real Estate Award winners have been announced and we’re so excited to have two TBG projects included among the impressive list of winners.
Oracle – Office Development Winner
Oracle’s waterfront campus enjoys a symbiotic relationship with Austin’s culture and physical environment. It embraces the city’s values — love of nature, fitness and outdoor activities — in form and function, and reverberates those values back through stewardship, connections to nature and public realm enhancements. Located on the south shores of Lady Bird Lake just east of downtown, the campus needed exceptional allure to draw premier talent. Its location, graceful connection to the Austin fabric, and premier employee amenities and outdoor spaces were integral aspects. The technology giant embraced the Austin ethos and preserved multiple heritage trees that were transplanted on site, along with reforestation / revegetation efforts, and improved connectivity to the adjacent Butler hike-and-bike trail.

Plaza Saltillo, Whole Foods Lease – Retail Transaction Winner
Long underserved and overlooked, east Austin is experiencing a full-fledged renaissance — and Plaza Saltillo exemplifies the area’s redevelopment potential as a vibrant, 18-hour activity hub. Encompassing six blocks of East Fifth Street from I-35 to the Plaza Saltillo transit station, the mixed-use development is bringing an array of commercial and residential components to the corridor in a compact, walkable urban form. The pedestrian-oriented design focuses on reconnecting the site to the larger urban area, improving connectivity, activating the edges, promoting community interaction though immersive paseos, and providing exceptional parks and open space for the community.
