AUSTIN (KXAN) - The city named the finalists in the competition to design the Waller Creek project.
The four teams of architects and landscapers are competing to design a floodwater diversion project.
A $146 million tunnel will effectively take 28 acres out of the city's flood plain. A lot of it is undeveloped land in the eastern part of Downtown Austin.
That land will become available for improvements, such as parks, public spaces and even private development.
A project winner should be announced in October.
Stage III Teams
- CMG and Public Architecture
- Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates and Thomas Phifer & Partners
- Turenscape and Lake | Flato Architects
- Workshop: Ken Smith Landscape Architect,
- Ten Eyck Landscape Architects and Rogers Marvel Architects
