Austin Texas Capitol - picAn ongoing effort by the state of Texas to move much of its workforce downtown has City Council members wondering what, if anything, the city can get out of the project. The state is planning on getting started with implementation of the Texas Capitol Complex Master Plan, which envisions four new buildings around the Capitol to accommodate 3,500 additional state employees who now work in other parts of the Austin area, a five-level underground parking garage and a large grass mall on Congress Avenue between 16th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Speaking to Council members at a Tuesday work session, State Rep. Donna Howard (D-Austin) said that the state was going to build the new buildings no matter what, but that she and State Sen. Kirk Watson (D-Austin) were trying to get the project to reflect the interests of the city as much as possible, notably through the creation of the mall, which will likely include a new museum.
