AUSTIN–Goveia Commercial Real Estate is bringing a 200-plus acre mixed-use project in southeast Austin on line.
The Riverbend will bring over 400 market-rate/240 affordable multifamily units to the area, at SH 130 and SH 71, along with commercial office space and much-anticipated retail, aiming to anchor the East Austin tech corridor to the south.
“The Riverbend will offer a horizon as the city of Austin faces east towards the future,” Joe Goveia, president of Goveia Commercial Real Estate, told GlobeSt.com.
In addition to its affordable multifamily, at full build-out, The Riverbend will have approximately 900,000 square feet of office space and in excess of 200,000 square feet of lifestyle-focused retail. The Riverbend will also comprise some 30-50 acres of commercial space, ideal for a large employer.
Rounding out its amenities, The Riverbend will feature over 80 acres of parks and open space. The property will include maintained trails—designed to meander along the sanctuary following Onion Creek and around the entire development—and, at completion, will wind over a mile throughout.
