The Austin City Council will consider the approval of the $9-million contract for the design and planning of the 180,000 square feet Austin Energy establishment this week. The contract includes a garage and surface parking spaces. It will be situated on East Riverside Drive at Grove Boulevard.
The proposal states that the budget will be spent on the initial construction activities such as cost estimation and modelling. Carlos Cordova, Austin Energy spokesperson, said that employees would occupy the leased space at 811 Barton Springs Road until September 2017.
The construction has a total estimated budget of $66.9 million.
