‘Austin Business Journal’ Names Mixed-Use Development Financed by Jackson Walker Client Lionstone Investments the “Project of the Year” for 2020

September 24, 2020 | Client Results

At the 2020 Commercial Real Estate Awards, Austin Business Journal named East Austin’s Saltillo District the “Project of the Year.” Transformed from a 10-acre former rail yard to a mixed-use urban district with 800 apartment units and 115,000 square feet of retail over a three-year period, the Saltillo District has quickly developed into a new hub in Central Texas with one of the region’s most diverse mobility infrastructure programs.

Jackson Walker is proud to have represented Lionstone Investments as the investment advisor to the equity investor for the Saltillo development. The multidisciplinary team included Kurt D. Nondorf, Douglas A. Paisley, David B. Deaton, and Ali Abazari.
