ARC is playing its part to reshape the Austin skyline with the abatement and gutting of the 10-story Ashbel Smith. It will be demolished by another company for a new 37-story tower on the 1.75-acre prime block in downtown owned by the University of Texas System. The Trammel Crow project will include 665,000 SF of office space, restaurants and retail space. Also, we are abating the historic, 3-story Claudia Taylor Johnson building, which was Austin’s Post Office in the early 1900s. It will be retained and redeveloped.
This asbestos abatement historic preservation project is located on Block 71 in downtown Austin. The Ashbel Smith Building was built in 1974 and the Claudia Taylor Johnson building was built in 1914. Both buildings have historic significance in Austin.
“We are pleased to be working with Lindamood Demolition and the University of Texas to achieve their goals for this monumental project,” said Steve Chappell, GM of ARC’s Dallas office.
