Block 87, The Last Undeveloped Block in Downtown Austin
Studio8 and The Archives of the Episcopal Church have been working together to create a vision for a downtown archives building.
Over the course of an eight year relationship, we master-planned several scenarios; each evolving with the needs of both the Archives and the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS). That relationship has recently culminated with the Trinity Block Development Package. The package will help the DFMS find a suitable partner to develop the last privately owned empty downtown Austin block. The project is anchored by the archives building (67,000 sf) and includes office(210,000sf), retail (42,000 sf) and residential components (317,000 sf).
