2008 Hines Competition Finalist – University of Texas at Austin


“Cedars: Reconnect, Revitalize”

Team 9197
University of Texas at Austin

“Cedars: Reconnect, Revitalize” stitches together social, physical and economic connections from an earlier era. Medium and low-rise uses traverse the spine connecting the Cedars DART stop with Old City Park. A diverse mix of families, artists, and professionals forms the core of a neighborhood already taking root. Central to the development theme is the proposed Natural Connections network of multi-modal and sustainable, “complete streets,” greenways, and open space.
