Cielo moves ahead with innovative East Austin project with City Council's approval April 1, 2016 – Jan Buchholz, Austin Business Journal Cielo Property Group plans to break ground within the next three months on an office and residential condominium project at 310 Comal St. in Central East Austin. Dubbed "The Foundry," the mixed-use development is full speed ahead now that Austin City Council unanimously approved a complicated affordable housing plan that Cielo proposed in partnership with Austin Habitat for Humanity. Cielo originally purchased the Comal property from Habitat in fall 2014. It previously housed the nonprofit's ReStore retail outlet, and Cielo partnersBobby Dillard and Rob Gandy intended to retrofit the project into creative office space. Habitat, meanwhile, purchased an old Chuck E. Cheese's building in South Austin on West Ben White Boulevard, which provided much more space for both the ReStore and its headquarters. Cielo, like many other developers, was eager to snag [...]
After delay, mixed-use project near Barton Creek mall to break ground Saturday, Feb. 20, 2016 - Shonda Novak, American-Statesman Staff A project announced nearly six years ago for a high-profile site across from Barton Creek Square mall in Southwest Austin is moving forward at last.

The 16-acre site formerly housed a Cinemark theater. Some nearby residents had opposed Cypress’ initial plans for more than 200 condominiums and townhomes, along with office and retail space, saying the project was too big and would increase traffic along Walsh Tarlton, where children walk to Hill Country Middle School and Cedar Creek Elementary. But executives with Cypress, a private real estate investment fund, say the new plan — for apartments, townhomes and an office building — [...]
